50 Kent

As we mentioned, Northside Media Group, the people behind the Northside Fest and The L Magazine, will be booking the concerts at 50 Kent (fka Williamsburg Park) this year, but concerts is not the only thing OSA is putting there as part of the "2014 50 Kent Festival":

OSA is pleased to announce the 2014 50 Kent Festival at the North Brooklyn waterfront - the ninth consecutive season of OSA's outdoor summer programming series. This year's series will have live concerts produced by Northside Media Group, including just-announced performances by The War on Drugs and Beirut on June 13 and 14. Free outdoor movies will be provided by Nitehawk Cinemas and each Sunday will feature an open-air market operated by Brooklyn Flea. Bike New York will install a Community Bike Education Center to offer free learn-to-ride and bike skills classes for children and adults, and Gotham Girls Roller Derby partners with Five Stride Skate Shop to set up a pop-up roller rink to host classes and free public roller skating one evening in July and August. Finally, in September, Renegade Craft Fair will operate a festive weekend-long craft market.

The Festival will operate May through September with programming every Sunday and concerts throughout the season. A full calendar will be available on OSA's website in the coming weeks. Proceeds from the 50 Kent Festival will go towards OSA's mission of maintaining and improving North Brooklyn parks.

Meanwhile, tickets for the two announced concerts are on sale.
