Superfly Produciton’s The Great Googa Mooga is bringing the East Coat’s tastiest festival back to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on May 17-19. Kicking things off will be a kick off concert on Friday night featuring the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips, and The Darkness. Matt and Kim will headline the music line up on the 18th, while Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings will headline the 19th. Check out the complete lineup above.
The real star of The Great Googa Mooga is the food, and this year boasts a line up of over 85 food makers, 75 beers, and 100 wines. Don’t think this is your your average carnival fare – this food is no joke. Think celebrity chefs like Tom Colicchio’s Colicchio and Sons and Daniel Boulud’s DBGBs, New York City favorites like Crif Dogs and The Meatball Shop, and places with awesome names like Bacon Land and Mother-In-Law’s Kimchi. And that’s just the beginning.
There is also a highly recommended VIP Cocktail Experience, which includes a special main stage viewing area, cocktail bars, seminars with some huge names in the food industry, and a vip-only entrance. The cocktail experience has been curated Julie Reiner, and includes five artisinal cocktails from the mixologists of Booker and Dax, PDT, and The Clover Club, among others.
Tickets for the Kick Off Concert and the VIP Cocktail Experience go on sale Thursday, March 28th, while the FREE registration for Saturday and Sunday general admission will take place between April 1st and 3rd. More information including complete lineups and ticket links, can be found at the festival’s official website.
