The 2018 edition of the free Wingate Concert Series, which was revived last year after a brief legal battle, takes place at Brooklyn's Wingate Park and features many big names in the worlds of hip hop, R&B, and gospel.

On August 15, it's a gospel-themed show featuring Jonathan Brown, Vashawn Mitchell, and more. Lastly, on August 16, there's a "Salute to Hip Hop" show from Big Daddy Kane, which features performances from Slick Rick, Wyclef Jean, Kool Moe Dee, and Mr. Cheeks.
