BRIC Arts Announces Celebrate Brooklyn's 30th Summer Season
Published May 6, 2008

Celebrate Brooklyn is one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals. It was launched in 1979 as a catalyst for a Brooklyn performing arts scene and to bring people back into Prospect Park after years of neglect. Since then, it has grown into one of the city's foremost summer cultural attractions. Over the course of its history Celebrate Brooklyn has presented over 1,700 artists and ensembles reflective of the borough's diversity, ranging from internationally acclaimed performers to emerging, cutting-edge artists. The art of music, dance, word, and film are celebrated by an average of 250,000 attendees from across New York City to the Prospect Park Bandshell each summer.

 

The 30th anniversary celebration of Celebrate Brooklyn will kick off on June 12 with a performance from 60s soul and R&B artist Isaac Hayes. A plethora of acts will follow leading up ‘til August, including the likes of Salif Keita, who is considered the “Golden Voice of Africa,” the Brazilian Girls, whose music is a “dizzy mix of bossa nova, jazz, rock, and electro beats” (Entertainment Weekly), and Ailey II, artists universally renowned for merging the spirit and energy of the country’s best young dance talent with the passion and creative vision of today’s most outstanding emerging choreographers.
