The GoogaMooga Festival is back for its second year at Prospect Park. Today the company who runs it, Superfly, announced the full music and food lineup coming on the weekend of May 17. Eater has the full rundown, but musical acts include The Flaming Lips, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Darkness, Matt & Kim and De La Soul. Food vendors (85 restaurants are participating) include Baked, Do or Dine, Fatty Cue, Momofuku, Mile End, Vinegar Hill House and Roberta’s. A bunch of beverage tents will serve over 75 beers and over 100 wines. Even more food and drink additions are expected in the coming weeks. The Flaming Lips, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Darkness will play a paid show on Friday night, and complimentary tickets will be available for the Saturday and Sunday shows at the GoogaMooga website from Monday, April 1 to Wednesday, April 3. Last year there were technical issues with the complimentary tickets, and some vendors ran out of food during the festival. For those who attended last year, will you return?

Dunkin’ Donuts is everywhere, and soon that will include Clinton Hill at the corner of Myrtle and Grand. It’ll be interesting to see how they make over this spot, which is located at 513 Myrtle Avenue. Thanks to a tipster for sending in the photo. GMAP
