St. Vincent, Talib Kweli and Nickel Creek are among the great free shows lined up.

Celebrate Brooklyn! Announces Full Summer 2014 Lineup

If you're planning a summer trip to New York City this year, you should definitely keep the Celebrate Brooklyn! shows in mind. Every summer, Prospect Park hosts great programming, both paid and free, and this summer is no exception. BRIC announced the complete lineup for the 2014 this morning, and it features some absolutely great shows. 

Things start off with a free Janelle Monae concert for opening night on June 4. Things continue to heat up with scheduled benefit series performances from artists/groups like Jack Johnson, Neutral Milk Hotel, The National and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds. Many of these performances are already sold out, but tickets for a few of them are still on sale.

The free shows are simply incredible, though. This summer, you will have the opportunity to see groups like Warpaint, Nickel Creek, Talib Kweli, Shovels & Rope, Dum Dum Girls, Amos Lee, Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, Deltron 3030, and even the incomparable St. Vincent, who closes out the schedule with a free show on August 8. I don't know if you can find a better group of summer-long programming than that, because that kind of schedule is astounding.

Check out the complete lineup below and definitely start planning around some of these dates that you're definitely going to want to check out.
