Brooklyn Comes Alive, the one-day festival well-known for presenting a potent mix of unique new projects, rare collaborations, and nationally touring heavy-hitters, returns to The Brooklyn Mirage on Saturday, September 17th, complete with lounge areas, a food court, and sunset views.
This year, Brooklyn Comes Alive will feature livetronica heroes STS9, avant-groove explorers Medeski Martin & Wood, future-funk sextet Lettuce, and the debut of Cool Cool Cool, a new project from former members of Turkuaz that is funky, fresh, and ready to throw a party.
Built from the vibrant live music community of Brooklyn, NY, and inspired by New Orleans, LA and its famed Jazz & Heritage Festival, Brooklyn Comes Alive has been breaking the mold of traditional festivals with unprecedented music experiences since 2015.
Much like past “Comes Alive” events, the 2022 Brooklyn Comes Alive lineup presents a number of exciting firsts and notable milestones. The event will serve as STS9’s first show in NYC since its last Brooklyn Mirage takeover in 2019, and the band plans to celebrate its return to Brooklyn with a two-hour late-night set. Similarly, Medeski Martin & Wood, who have not played together on their home turf in NYC since 2019 and have not performed live since before the pandemic, will use the special appearance to celebrate their 30th anniversary as a band, which took place last year.
If the lineup hasn’t sold you, perhaps the huge visual oddysey that’s in store will get you to Brooklyn on Saturday. One of the world’s largest outdoor video walls is found right at Brooklyn Mirage. Over 1000 LED panels form 6000 square feet of wall, and with 15k ultra wide resolution, the visual effects are film grade, and as state of the art as it comes.
Add in a custom built media server and processing technology that allows leading visual content creators from around the world to create truly immersive show visuals, one the makes the potential for a hyperrealistic environment to be created at Brooklyn Mirage.
