New York City will have another outdoor concert series to give New Yorker’s their outdoor music fix this summer, because apparently there weren’t enough already. Central Park SummerStage, Celebrate Brooklyn, Today Show, Good Morning America, and the concerts at pier 97 have provided more than enough venues for locals to leave work early, grab some crisp adult beverages, and enjoy some great music under the summer sun.

Now New Yorkers will have another chance to catch some great shows during the hot months, with Brooklyn Live, which will welcome tens of thousands of concert goers to catch great acts all summer long ranging from indie rock, to deep house, electronica, and hip-hop. Taking place at Bushwick Inlet Park in north Williamsburg, things will kick off in June for Northside Festival. Neko Case, Run The Jewels, and Sleigh Bells, are only a few of the acts who will play the venue’s opening week during the annual north Brooklyn music and film festival. The new venue will also host the The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, the annual celebration of the best rising Hip-Hop artists and the borough of Brooklyn, featuring Grammy and Oscar-winning artist, and fellow Brooklyn fella, Common.

The venue does keep Brooklyn’s rich artistic history intact, during a time when fan-favorite venues have been closed due to good ‘ol gentrification. Can’t wait to read the Gothamist piece talking about how all the new, wealthy residents are bitching about the noise in their fancy high rises.
