Mark your calendars, because this weekend in Brooklyn is jam packed with live music performances. Over the course of four days and seven live concert performances, more than 20 artists collectively honored with 30-plus GRAMMY® and Latin GRAMMY Awards® will converge in Brooklyn for GRAMMY Park, the first GRAMMY-branded, multiday live music experience.
In conjunction with the Recording Academy, Upsilon Ventures, who operates the LeFrak Center at Lakeside, is producing this live concert series, hosted at Brooklyn’s historic Kings Theatre and the LeFrak Center at Lakeside Prospect Park.
Live performances and signature Artist Spotlights will feature seven-time GRAMMY winner Toni Braxton with Andra Day and three-time GRAMMY winner Ne-Yo with Jazmine Sullivan at Brooklyn’s beautiful, recently-renovated Kings Theatre.
But that’s not all. GRAMMY Park is proud to bring four free live music shows to the LeFrak Center at Lakeside on Saturday, May 7 and Sunday, May 8. This series includes a special concert featuring emerging artists like Alex & Sierra and child star Sparsh Shah, an All-Star Jazz performance, a Mother’s Day Gospel Brunch concert and Big Band show featuring Christian McBride.
Lakeside will remain open to the public for normal operating hours through the weekend, so guests can enjoy live music alongside their favorite park activities, including boating, biking and roller skating.
Ticket prices for Kings Theatre shows range from $35 to $175 (for VIP packages). Tickets are not required for any of the free shows offered at Lakeside this weekend.
