Headliner Act at the Toyota Rock 'n' Roll Concert Series

Introducing Hollis Brown as the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series Headliner for this year’s Synchrony Financial Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon & 5 Miler!

With a worldwide touring schedule and music placements in the Michael Keaton film The Founder, Showtime’s Shameless, and MTV’s Real World, to name a few, this edgy roots-rock indie band from Queens is the perfect way to pump up the post-race Finish Line Festival celebrations.

Entertainment on the Course

Music and spectators make up the heart and “sole” of this event. While there will be 17 entertainment sites on course, they will not be enhanced by amplified sound until 9am, per New York City Sound Permit guidelines.

At 9am, bands and entertainment stages inside Prospect Park will be amplified, so you can still celebrate your big finish with the headliner concert, Hollis Brown, at 10:15am at the Finish Line Festival in Prospect Park.

The Brooklyn community rocks, and we’re confident this course is still going to pump up your run thanks to all our enthusiastic entertainment stations and spectators. That said, if you’re the type of runner who needs a constant beat in your ears, you may want to bring your headphones along just in case.
