This summer over 50,000 music fans will flock to 50 Kent Ave for Brooklyn Live at The Inlet, Presented by Century 21 department store. The concert series will feature indie rock and hip hop acts, as well as some deep house and electronica, for good measure.
The series kicks off in June with the return of Northside Festival, Brooklyn’s own music, film and innovation discovery fest. Taking the stage set against the Manhattan skyline, Neko Case will headline the inaugural show with Rhye and Majical Cloudz on Friday, June 12. The following night Best Coast and Built To Spill will co-headline a bill with support from Alvvays and Bully. Run the Jewels, Sleigh Bells and Vince Staples will take the stage to wrap up the fest with a bang - prepare to get loud, Brooklyn.
Other highlights from the series include The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, an annual celebration of the best and brightest in hip-hop and the borough of Brooklyn, headlined this year by Grammy and Oscar award-winner Common. The Greatest Day Ever will also return for an all day celebration of great music as well as carnival games and an array of food trucks. Local underground music staple Verboten will also be bring its StageONE back with some summer bangers, and Brooklyn Flea will co-host six free daytime shows throughout the season.
The series is produced with the support of New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA). Proceeds from the series will be used to help maintain, activate, and further develop the Park so we can all keep enjoying amazing music and food at one of Brooklyn’s favorite outdoor spaces.
