This summer lineup for the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival was just announced, and it's jam-packed with free shows, benefit concerts, and eclectic film screenings. The season-long fest, once named by this website as a reason that Brooklyn lives up to its hype, kicks off June 7th in Prospect Park, with multiple events per week scheduled through August 12th.

In that time, the Prospect Park bandshell will play host to a wide-array of free ($5 suggested donation) and ticketed events, including performances from Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, Talib Kweli, Conor Oberst, and Sylvan Esso. Fleet Foxes and The Shins will also play the park, though those two benefits are already sold out.

According to the announcement: "Of the 31 total performances being presented this season, 25 are free (with a $5 suggested contribution at the gate): 20 music concerts, three Music & Movies performance events in which live music accompanies films projected on NYC's largest (50' wide x 21' high) outdoor screen, and two dance performances. The remaining six shows are ticketed benefit concerts."
