The Pool Parties to Return to the Williamsburg Waterfront this Summer

New York-based promoter Jelly has confirmed the schedule for this summer’s free The Pool Parties concerts. Jelly hosted free music at Brooklyn’s McCarren Park Pool from 2006-2008 and moved the series to the Williamsburg Waterfront last summer. The Pool Parties will return to the Williamsburg Waterfront for seven shows between July 11—August 29. Due to scheduling conflicts, an eighth show on August 1 has been changed to a “Block Party” in and around Brooklyn Bowl, the venue owned by Relix/Jambands.com publisher Peter Shapiro.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer and Phillip Goldfeder from the Senator’s office were instrumental in helping the series return this summer. Jelly owners Alexander Kane and Sarah Hooper said in a statement, “It has been a long hard road this year to bring this series back to Williamsburg and it 100% could not have been done without Senator Schumer’s efforts. “

This year’s The Pool Parties will be co-presented by VEOBA, an online resource for artists, managers, and record labels.
