Performance by Brittany Howard

Brittany Howard, frontwoman and guitarist for the chart-topping, GRAMMY Award-winning band Alabama Shakes, will perform this year’s Opening Night concert. Howard continues to push the envelope with her GRAMMY-nominated, critically-acclaimed debut solo album, Jaime, which Pitchfork called a "thrilling opus that pushes the boundaries of voice, sound, and soul to new extremes.”




After Party

Come dance the night away with us at our After Party immediately following Brittany Howard’s main stage performance as part of our Opening Night of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at the Prospect Park Bandshell. This DJ-led after party will feature an open bar as we welcome the start of summer, and the most beloved tradition of the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival. Free for REVEL fundraiser attendees and Friends Members at the Tent level and above.
