Prospect Park Bandshell

Map & Directions 9th St. & Prospect Park W.
Brooklyn, NY 11215


Village Voice's Description

The Prospect Park bandshell plays host to some of the city's most eclectic musical nights out. The setting alone in the heart of the park provides an easy way to get away from the city's bustle. Plus? The booking is consistently quality. During the summer months, as part of the Celebrate Brooklyn initiative, the Bandshell offers weekly free concerts of some of the biggest, family-friendly acts. And really, seeing artists in a near-forest setting just can’t be beat. But unfortunately, space is quite limited. Sometimes, you might find yourself outside the perimeter of this amphitheater, peeking in like an outsider. Getting a beer is a bit tough, too, as you purchase tickets that are eventually turned into booze. Plus, as always with outdoor spaces, acoustics can be the main detriment. But fortunate for the park, that bandshell does wonders for holding in the sound. --Dale Eisinger

    Thanks to Celebrate Brooklyn!, the Prospect Park Bandshell is to Brooklynites what Central Park SummerStage is to Manhattan residents—the place to hear great music in the great outdoors.
