Celebrate Brooklyn will open its 30th season on June 12 with a performance by Isaac Hayes. This summer's lineup for the free concert series at the Prospect Park band shell includes Miriam Makeba; Beth Orton; a screening of the Bruce Lee movie "Enter the Dragon," with live accompaniment by Karsh Kale; a tribute to the R&B singer Bill Withers; and a benefit by Feist.
The Bill Withers tribute is one of Hal Willner's multi-artist shows.

Feist is about to leave on a tour that also has her playing two shows at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC at the end of April.

Many of the Central Park Summerstage shows have also leaked out, not to mention some stuff happening at McCarren Pool.

This will be "Celebrate Brooklyn"'s 30th year of concerts in Prospect Park. Check out the multi-artist birthday video below.....

The "Enter the Dragon" screening with Karsh Kale sounds AMAZING.

It'd be so dope if YLT played again.

Pretty rad as always. Love the live score shows (I'm assuming that's what the Philip Glass event is as well). & Free MMW + Ribot is really awesome.

Why is it if someone thinks the line-up is shitty another person has to insult his/her mother? The post didn't say YOU are shitty, so it's baffling why you have to take it personally. While I'm thrilled with what's on tap this summer, I can respect if someone else isn't seeing their tastes reflected in the schedule. Brooklyn is a large and diverse place and that ought to be reflected in our free summer programming. Let's not be snobs.

no he's not... Bob Dylan is playing:

Although I wish that Brian had attempted to keep this a secret before tickets went on sale. Oh well.

This is going to be one tough ticket.

Where are the reggae acts.

THANK GOD no Yo La Tengo! My gosh, can't they just go away! Like, I dunno, maybe Bejing needs a house band for a while.
