BRIC's safety measures

Proof of vaccination is now required for entry into BRIC House. For more information, please head here.

BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! is making this decision after music festivals across the nation, including SummerStage in Central Park, have rolled out similar protocols in response to the increase in COVID-19 infections and the rise of the Delta variant. While BRIC remains committed to creating open and accessible musical experiences for all of New York City, we must also ensure the safety of our staff, our audiences and the communities that we serve.

If you have additional questions not answered by the FAQ below, please email info@bricartsmedia.org.

Thanks for doing your part to keep us all safe. See you #BackAtTheBandshell!
