Crowd during Simian Mobile Disco at Jelly NYC, Williamsburg, Bro

Brooklyn indie music fans clap your hands and stock up on sunblock! JELLY are celebrating their fifth anniversary of the infamous Brooklyn Pool Parties this year. Once again, they’ll happen on the Williamsburg Waterfront for 7 dates from July 11th through August 29th.  However, the August 1st date will be moved to a “Block  Party” in and around Brooklyn Bowl, making it 8 total “FREE Pool Party Sundays”.

JELLY wants to give a big thanks to  Senator Chuck Schumer and Phillip Goldfeder from the Senator’s office for all of their support ensuring JELLY’S return to the Williamsburg Waterfront. This couldn’t have been done without Schumer’s efforts.

The Pool Parties will be co-presented by VEOBA, an online resource for artists, managers, and record labels begun in May 2010. Based in Chicago, but with global reach, VEOBA provides the music community with select services to progress and maintain their livelihood.

Though there are some surprise guests that cannot yet be revealed, the full summer lineup is below.

  1. If you’re anything like me you’d need to know that the gates open at 2PM, I think the first band usually goes on around 3PM. I’ve also seen the line thin out (they’ve been doing a really good job with checking as much along the line as possible so it moves quickly) after 3:30.


  2. How do we find out what time each band comes out? Does the main act usually come last?

    @sarah, The first listed is usually the biggest, but looking over the listings that’s not always true. You’re right, the main act comes on last. Check up the Jelly twitter account for updated details the day of
