Squarespace x Celebrate Brooklyn!

We love New York and we love music – so we’re especially excited to announce that Squarespace will be the presenting sponsor for its 36th annual Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, which begins with a free concert by Janelle Monae on June 4 and runs throughout the summer at the Prospect Park Bandshell.

Along with Janelle Monae, the festival’s star-studded line-up also includes acts such as The National, Neutral Milk Hotel, Deltron 3030, St. Vincent, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. As a platform that supports great thinkers, artists, and creative individuals, we are thrilled to partner with Celebrate Brooklyn! and look forward to supporting one of the best cultural initiatives in the city.

In celebration of the partnership, we’re giving away a pair of VIP tickets each to two lucky individuals who will have expedited line access and reserved seating at the Janelle Monae show. Guests will also have access to the VIP after-party featuring DJ Spinna. You must be over 21 years of age to participate. To enter:
