The Second Annual Prospect Heights Music & Arts Festival is a five-day multi-venue neighborhood experience highlighting Brooklyn musicians, artists and culture organized by The Way Station. Join us July 15-19, 2015 to discover how Brooklyn inspires local musicians to write and perform music ranging from Americana to Haitian vodou jazz and Flamenco-pop to Post-Apocalyptic Rock and Roll.
This year’s Festival boasts five participating venues presenting live music and eight art initiatives that will host special Brooklyn focused events and exhibitions. Featuring over 75 Brooklyn based bands and musicians, the PHMAF will also address how we can sustain an affordable, desirable, culturally diverse and creatively active neighborhood in a panel discussion on Saturday, July 18, 2-3:30pm featuring Brooklyn Borough President Eric L.
