Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Matt & Kim, De La Soul, Father John Misty, Jovanotti, Cults, The Soul Rebels, Sharon Van Etten, Lee Fields & the Expressions and many more will perform at the 2nd annual Great Googa Mooga in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on May 18 and 19. The Flaming Lips, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Darkness will also perform at the festival’s Kickoff Concert on May 17. Organized by Bonnaroo/Outside Lands promoters Superfly, the Great Googa Mooga focuses on food and drink, with 85 restaurants, 75 beers and 100 wines represented at the event. A full list of performing artists can be found below.

Admission to the Great Googa Mooga is free with registration, which takes place April 1-3. Space is limited and the complimentary tickets will be given away at random on Wednesday, April 10. Fans will have to register for each day individually. Tickets to the Kickoff Concert are $49.50 and will go on sale March 28 at noon EST.

On Both Friday and Saturday, Googa Mooga will host the VIP Cocktail Experience. VIP tickets include premier viewing of the Nethermead Stage and exclusive access to the festival’s VIP-only Cocktail Experiences. Curated by acclaimed mixologist Julie Reiner, Partner and Beverage Director of Brooklyn’s Clover Club and Owner of Manhattan’s Flatiron Lounge, the VIP Cocktail Experience creates the ultimate “bar” with cocktails by some of New York’s current buzz destinations: Dead Rabbit Grocery and Grog, Pouring Ribbons, The Library at The Public, The Nomad, Booker & Dax, PDT, Clover Club, Pegu Club, Flatiron Lounge, and Death & Co. Cocktails will be served in both Prospect Park’s Boathouse, a stunning historical building dating back to 1904 that overlooks the Lullwater and Lake, and in a tented venue in the Nethermead Meadow. Reiner will also host cocktail demos throughout the weekend. VIP tickets include five drink tickets to the area’s cocktail bars for ticketholders who are 21+.
