Central Park Summerstage Concert

About this event

The city's most beloved free summer concert series is back with a stellar line-up featuring nearly 80 free and benefit shows in Central Park, plus neighborhood parks across the five boroughs.  

New this year is a 50th-anniversary celebration of hip-hop, and there will be even more artists featuring music from around the world. Central Park SummerStage will also bring local artists back to their roots, including Kool and the Gang in Queens and Nick Hakim in Brooklyn. 

All shows are free except the benefit concerts. Performers include Indigo Girls, Sammy Rae & The Friends, Grandmaster Flash, The Metropolitan Opera, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Garbage, Kool and the Gang, DJ Rekha, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Regina Spektor and much, much more.
