welcome Williamsburg Park @ 50 Kent (new city park concert venue replacing Williamsburg Waterfront)

Goodbye state park Williamsburg Waterfront. Welcome city park Williamsburg Park. Located less than a block away from last summer’s venue, between North 11th and North 12th at 50 Kent (I hope they book 50 Cent), Williamsburg Park is the new outdoor Brooklyn venue that will host OSA-presented concerts this summer in Williamsburg. The new space won’t have a water view, but it also won’t have a caged off beer area or state troopers walking around. And unlike at Williamsburg Waterfront, all money raised at Williamsburg Park will stay in the city. There will be food and, as mentioned, beer.

With a capacity of roughly 7000 people, the work-in-progress Williamsburg Park will host as many as 20 shows this summer, with about 1/3 of them being free. There might be other things happening there too (they still have a lot to figure out). You can see artist renderings of the space above, though those are not final sketches. In fact, there will definitely not be a raised viewing platform right in the center of the space.

The first show announced is Refused & OFF! on July 18th, part of a tour for the two bands. Tickets are on PRESALE now (username: refused, password: tickets). And:

Tickets to the July 18 concert will be available on Friday, March 30 at 12pm EST via Ticketmaster.com, charge by phone 800.745.3000, Service charge free tickets are available at the Best Buy Theater box office, 1515 Broadway at West 44th Street, 212.930.1950, and Sound Fix Records, Williamsburg’s independent record store, located at 44 Berry Street in Brooklyn.

Stay tuned for more show announcements soon.
