The lineup for the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn!'s 2017 summer series is here. The annual event has been filling Prospect Park with tunes since 1979, and this year will be no exception. This year's free offerings include shows with jazz legend Pharoah Sanders, soul singer Musiq Soulchild, funk act Quantic, indie-rock outfit Whitney and opening night with Lake Street Dive.

Those free shows (and movie screenings) are in addition to the venue's ticketed benefit concerts, which include shows with Conor Oberst, Fleet Foxes, Sylan Esso and the Shins.
