The Prospect Park Bandshell is about as green as a concert venue can get — it’s outside! The Bandshell is located on the Park Slope side of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, close to the 9th Street entrance, and it’s most know for hosting the Celebrate Brooklyn Performing Arts Festival. From June through August, BRIC Arts Media brings an array of musical performers to the outdoor stage every weekend — all for free! The “lawn” seats 5,000 people, but don’t fret if you’re not there early enough to get in. The only thing separating the designated lawn from the rest of the park is a flimsy little fence, which means you can set up camp outside the perimeter and still enjoy the show. Past performers include Norah Jones, The Roots, Sonic Youth, David Byrne, Deerhoof, and many, many more.

One of the best things about Summer in Brooklyn is the Prospect Park Bandshell. The lawn is a perfect place to see a show, they have great food and beer vendors and always pull in awesome bands. Make sure you get the schedule early and see who is coming through town.

This is where Celebrate Brooklyn! holds all of their concerts in the summer. If you live in New York and you haven’t been to a concert at the Prospect Park band shell you are MISSING OUT! Some of them are free! So get your booty to Brooklyn, it’s an amazing venue. I’ve seen everyone from Coldplay to Sharon Jones rock the stage.

Seriously, what could be better than a show outside in summer?
