Brooklyn’s largest concert venue coming to Williamsburg

Get your concert fix going next spring — the largest general admission venue to ever open in Brooklyn is coming to Williamsburg!

Brooklyn Steel, a new 20,000 square-foot, 1,800 capacity concert venue will open on Frost Street, and, with confirmed shows from some big names already signed on, promises to be the next big thing to happen for Brooklyn music lovers.

“Brooklyn Steel is filling a void in the Brooklyn music scene, offering the largest general admission venue in New York’s largest borough,” said John Moore and Jim Glancy, partners at the Bowery Presents – the independent concert promoter behind the project. “With every venue we open, we aim to create a space where both fans and bands can fully enjoy the experience; from easy access to bars and restrooms, to unobstructed sightlines and state-of-the-art sound and acoustics, we’re confident that Brooklyn Steel delivers on our commitment to keep the music first.”

The Decemberists, Pixies, PJ Harvey, Two Door Cinema Club, Animal Collective, Perfume Genius, Whitney, Tycho, the Black Angels and San Fermin are among the already confirmed bands set to headline the venue in spring, 2017.

The sleek and industrial-looking space – formerly a steel factory – will feature raised platforms and a mezzanine, allowing for great sightlines from anywhere within the space; three bars; 40 total restrooms; three dressing rooms featuring full bathrooms with washers and dryers; and production, vendor and promoter offices, according the Bowery Presents.

The venue will be located at 319 Frost Street. For schedule and ticket information, visit
