It’s almost time for SummerStage, the famed outdoor concert series which features more than 200 artists to perform across the five boroughs of New York City. This year, the concerts will run from May 17th to October 7th, and feature a range of musicians for both ticketed and free events.
SummerStage 2018 will feature free shows from Talib Kweli, Dej Loaf, Pete Rock, Porches, and many others. Among the artists performing benefit concerts—aka ticketed shows—is Liam Gallagher, Dispatch, Mac Demarco, and Blood Orange.
Brought to New Yorkers by the City Parks Foundation, SummerStage offers up more than just contemporary concerts. From the Metropolitan Opera Summer Recital Series, to the Hip-Hop and You Don’t Stop Showcase, to the Harlem Gospel Choir’s “Hallelujah Disco“, the SummerStage 2018 Lineup has it all. Check out the full schedule of events and more details here.
“New York is the quintessential global city, and the place SummerStage has been proud to call home for more than three decades,” City Parks Foundation Executive Director Heather Lubov said in a statement. “SummerStage brings the best music from around the world to New York’s many and varied communities, using local neighborhood parks as gathering spaces in which to experience world-class culture. From iconic performers to the latest up-and-coming artist, we present everything from indie to Afrobeat, Latin trap to soul, reggae to contemporary dance, fado to EDM, and everything in between.”
From Kool & the Gang’s free show at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, to Blood Orange’s benefit concert, with special guests, at the Central Park SummerStage, it looks like both native and visiting New Yorkers are in for an incredible concert season.
