As the outdoor concerts and festival announcements continue to roll in, we keep getting more and more excited for summer. 

There's just no better way to enjoy summertime in New York City. 

The best musical acts from all over the country culminate here to perform at some of the dopest events of the year, and we certainly want to take advantage. 

And bless the summer concert gods, because we've just received the announcement we've been waiting for - the entire 2016 Celebrate Brooklyn lineup has arrived! 

The 38th annual festival takes place every year at the Prospect Park bandshell, and this year features show-stoppers like Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, The Lumineers, and Stephen Colbert’s bandleader Jon Batiste And Stay Human.
