719

Great GoogaMooga, Superfly Presents’ amusement park of food, drink and music, will return to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park May 17-19, 2013. In its second year, GoogaMooga will feature a three-day format, up from two days in 2012. Adding to its stellar culinary personality, whereby 85 of New York’s top restaurants are paired with 75 brews and 100 wines, this year’s GoogaMooga will see 20 live performances from the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips, Matt & Kim, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, The Darkness, Jovanotti, Father John Misty and De La Soul.

“Brooklyn is thrilled to welcome back Great GoogaMooga for a second year of ‘eats’ and ‘beats’ – not to mention some of the city’s best mixologists, winemakers and brewers to go along with all that great food and music – Brooklyn style! Brooklyn is the Creative and Cultural Capital of New York City and an international culinary destination, so Great GoogaMooga is right at home here, and there is no better place than our magnificent Prospect Park to host the festival. Bravo to Superfly Presents, the Prospect Park Alliance, the New York City Parks Department and all of their partners for the return of Great GoogaMooga – not just two days this year, but three – which means even more economic activity, more visitors and, of course, more fun!” said Brooklyn Borough President, Marty Markowitz.

“Great GoogaMooga is a celebration of food, music and Prospect Park – three things that make Brooklyn such a wonderful place to live, work and play. Frederick Law Olmsted, Prospect Park’s brilliant co-designer, intended for the Park to be a great gathering place, as well as a place of quiet respite. We are looking forward to the Great GoogaMooga returning to Prospect Park in 2013,” said President of the Prospect Park Alliance and Park Administrator, Emily Lloyd.

This year, GoogaMooga will partner with WORD and Housing Works Bookstore Cafe to add a new element that highlights the ripe intersection of food, drink, and literature at Café GoogaMooga, a tented area with a coffeehouse ambiance. Café GoogaMooga’s Literary Stage will spotlight writers – from celebrity-chef authors to critics, novelists, comic artists and poets – who are using food and drink as the main ingredients of their craft.
