The sweetest pool parties around are back in action this summer.
New York’s Jelly is celebrating its fifth year of their groundbreaking free summer Sunday concert series. In 2009, they relocated from the formerly abandoned McCarren Park Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to the new 10,000-capacity home on the Williamsburg Waterfront.
The first of the parties kicks off this Sunday with a packed lineup that includes Xiu Xiu and Deerhoof playing Joy Division and alternative hip-hop trio Why?. Check out the full lineup (plus a special guest for the final party) below, and visit their ThePoolParties.com for more information.
