Spike Lee’s tribute to Michael Jackson will be held this Saturday, August 29, in Prospect Park.

The event, on which would have been the singer’s 51st birthday, was originally planned for Fort Greene Park, but fears of a larger-than-expected turnout prompted the celebration to be moved to the park.

Listen to DJ Spinna spinning all things Jackson and watch videos from noon to 5 p.m. at the Nethermead, a rolling meadow located near the center. The public is allowed to enter starting at 10 a.m.

The Nethermead is most accessible from the 16th Street and Prospect Park Southwest entrance, the Bartel-Pritchard entrance, the 9th Street entrance, the 3rd Street entrance or the Willink Entrance at Ocean and Flatbush Avenues.
