NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The wildly popular Williamsburg Waterfront Concert series is back in action this summer with a line-up that includes Kid CuDi, They Might Be Giants and Coheed and Cambria.

Also in the line-up is wine, and an effort to beautify part of Brooklyn.

The Open Space Alliance of North Brooklyn brought back Wine Australia, the same company featured at the 2010 concerts, as the sole wine sponsor for the sold-out shows to take place at the East River State Park.

There will be 19 different varieties available at the shows, and 100 percent of the profits will go to OSA’s greening of the urban landscape in Brooklyn.
