SummerStage may be bigger and better-known, but Celebrate Brooklyn! has been around for much longer. And yes, it's worth the trek to Brooklyn—not only is the Bandshell a beaut, but the roster is often packed with interesting artists (recent alums include They Might Be Giants, Belle & Sebastian and Big Boi.) This year, the fest is kicking off its 36th season in style, with groovy R&B spitfire Janelle Monaé playing the first free concert on June 4. Benefit shows from reunited cult heroes Neutral Milk Hotel and Brooklyn indie royalty the National will follow, and expect a bevy of free concerts and film screenings to be announced as it gets closer to summer.
