Presented by performing arts nonprofit BRIC and running June through August, many of the Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Fest concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell are free although five will be ticketed events.  The admission charges for the handful of concerts help underwrite the free shows.

Covering a wide range of genres, the series also includes Mavis Staples, Calexico, Big Boi, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Grouplove, Tiger Lillies, The Waterboys and Robert Plant Presents The Sensational Shape Shifters.  They Might Be Giants wrap up the series August. 10.
