Williamsburg Park earlier this year (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Williamsburg Park

As you may know, outdoor Brooklyn venue Williamsburg Park (at Kent Ave and N 12 St) is hosting shows again this summer. This year's series kicked off during Memorial Day Weekend with a show from The Shins and Man Man, and continues this Saturday (6/29) with a free show from the Julliard Jazz Ensemble. It's an afternoon show (4 PM) and open to the public.

On the down side, the Kendrick Lamar show at Williamsburg Park that was supposed to happen in September was just cancelled. But on the plus side, Charles Bradley will be playing there for free that month.

Other Williamsburg Park shows happening this summer: the Odd Future and Meek Mill show on July 20 which Schoolboy Q was just added to; New Order and Holy Ghost! on July 24; D'Angelo on August 1; and the Mad Decent Block Party (Major Lazer, Flosstradamus, Rockie Fresh & more) on August 10.

The Mad Decent Block party is sold out, but tickets are still available to all the other shows.

How is it Summerstage and Celebrate Brooklyn have like 6-10 pay shows a summer to pay for the 30-40 free shows they have, while Williamsburg has 6 for profit shows but only 2 free shows?

Not that I care, because it's a fucking parking lot (who would want to see shows there?), I just hope this isn't city property anymore being used to enrich a bunch of corrupt assholes in the "Open Space Alliance."

It's a truly depressing venue. A parking lot with portable toilets. And they have the nerve to call this a park. The organizers and artists are all sleazy and the attendees are all suckers.

The waterfront was much nicer and had much better shows. This is just a joke.

wow fun! Everything looked great! I’m sure they all had tons of fun! I’m hoping to do something this creative for our little guys 2nd birthday in November but with Fire Trucks.

I would not go that far. She worked hard that night, it is just that Ninja's talent over shadows her live and the World at Large.

How about Volbeat,Alter Bridge,Heaven's Basement & Kobra and the Lotus? Alter Bridge is the main band of Myles Kennedy(Slash & the Conspirators) & Mark Tremonti on guitars is a monster.Heaven's Basement is a kickass Sleaze/ Hardrock band from the UK,like a modern version of G'n'R/Skid Row.And Kobra & the Lotus is oldschool 80's Metal with a superhot female singer who sings in the classic Metal style like Bruce Dickinson or Dio.
