With each passing day, we're getting a more complete picture of this year's huge array of summer concerts in NYC. A few weeks back, we unveiled the full 2015 SummerStage concert lineup. Now it's time to fill you in on the schedule for Celebrate Brooklyn!, SummerStage's perennially rad, crowd-pleasing Kings County counterpart—presented as always by the nonprofit arts organization BRIC—which hosts killer gigs all season long in scenic Prospect Park. This year's lineup of five paid benefit gigs and more than 20 gratis concerts is typically choice: Whether you're into jazz (Esperanza Spalding, Jason Moran), country (Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams), indie rock (Modest Mouse, Tune-Yards) or international sounds (Vieux Farka Touré, Bajofondo), you're going to want to give this lineup a long, hard look—preferably with your Google Calendar open in another browser tab.
