BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival Announces 2022 Lineup

May 11, 2022

Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to get ready for a season of music, dance and more at the Lena Horne Bandshell! The 2022 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, kicks off on Wednesday, June 8 for a summer of talent spanning from global music icons to chart-topping indie bands, benefit concerts, family days, and movie nights. Programming wraps with a closing night show on Saturday, August 6. The festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance and NYC Parks, is back for its 44th annual season of bringing communities together for summer fun in Brooklyn’s Backyard.

“This summer is about being together – the power of gathering in this moment of human history,” said Diane Eber, Executive Producer of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! “Artists can show us the way to heal through creative expression and there’s no better place to experience that than the Bandshell. We are so honored to bring another season of magic to our communities at BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn!”

“It wouldn’t be summer in Prospect Park without the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at the Lena Horne Bandshell,” said James Snow, Prospect Park Alliance Interim President. “This festival brings a wide range of free music and family programming to Prospect Park, and gives Brooklyn’s diverse community a chance to come together—we’re excited for the season to begin.”

Tickets are still available for many of this season’s benefit shows, and the majority of the festival’s performances are free to the public. For more information, check out our BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! page, and for the full line-up, scroll down!
