Your 2015 free Prospect Park summer show schedule

Yesterday we all got to bask in the warmth provided by the Brooklyn Bridge Park movie schedule, and today, we got another huge sign of #summeriscoming. After months of shivering and waiting for warmth, we finally get to lay eyes on the Celebrate Brooklyn schedule this year and start dreaming of sitting in a blanket in Prospect Park with some wine and cheese (or okay, some beer and pizza) watching free music. Our pals at BRIC found a pretty good lineup again this year, like they do every year, so you can see the New Pornographers, Big K.R.I.T., Will Oldham and JD Samson for absolutely no money. Thanks, BRIC! Anyway, take a look at the full schedule below.

All shows listed are free (suggested donation $3); shows with the $$$ next to them are paid ticketed shows.
