BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! free 2019 Prospect Park shows: Tortoise, Calexico & Iron & Wine, Liz Phair/Ted Leo, more

Tortoise TNT

Last month the SummerStage lineup was announced and today another big series of free outdoor NYC shows gets announced: the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. As mentioned, it kicks off with the Patti LaBelle show on June 4, and other highlights include Tortoise (performing 1998’s TNT like they did at Pitchfork’s Midwinter Festival), Calexico & Iron Wine, Liz Phair/Ted Leo, Mick Jenkins/Leikeli47, Oddisee, Nilufer Yanya (with a surprise headliner), I’m With Her, Bomba Estéreo, Burna Boy, Jidenna, Ibeyi/Sudan Archives, Nosaj Thing (DJ)/Kimbra, an all-women tribute to Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On, and more. DJ Rich Medina will headline this year’s Family Concert on June 15.

Ticketed benefit shows this season include The National / Courtney Barnett (two shows), Father John Misty/Jason Isbell/Jade Bird, and Mac DeMarco.

Any guesses on the surprise headliner for the Nilufer Yanya show? UPDATE: It’s Broken Social Scene. See the full lineup of free shows below, alongside a stream of Tortoise’s TNT
