Come out to Brooklyn’s iconic Coney Island, on Sun., July 10 for the second installment of this summer’s Coney Island Reggae on the Boardwalk. Producer and reggae enthusiast Carter Van Pelt has been presenting this free summer series for six years, with over 50 DJs participating, and the seventh looks like it will be just as fun and exciting. The all-vinyl DJ session has grown in popularity over the years, becoming an anticipated community activity.
You can get a taste by watching this video from a 2015 Coney Island Reggae on the Boardwalk concert:
