The SummerStage 2018 lineup is here
Music The SummerStage 2018 lineup is here

The free SummerStage concert series is one of the city's best perks. The calendar for this year's festival doesn't disappoint, bringing more than 100 music and dance offerings to 18 parks in all five boroughs. The festival kicks off June 2 in Central Park with a free show headlined by jazz singer Gregory Porter. What follows is a diverse, wide-ranging lineup of acts that's both conscious of history and embracing of new talent.  RECOMMENDED: Full guide to SummerStage Hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane celebrates the 30th anniversary of his debut Long Live the Kane on June 20 in Coney Island. Three days later trio Secret Circle (rapper Wiki, Lil Ugly Mane and Antwon) brings its kinetic tagteam rhymes to Coffey Park. For fans of jazz, the annual Charlie Parker Jazz Festival returns for three days in late August with sets by Catherine Russell, Gary Bartz, the Bad Plus and more. Indie-rock bookings include a strong triple bill with Porches, Sunflower Bean and Crumb on August 11 and Canadian collective Broken Social Scene on July 1. Add to that salsa, reggae, freestyle, a David Bowie tribute and plenty more music throughout the summer. The lineup of free concerts is supported by ticketed shows in Central Park (among those indie crooner Mac DeMarco and...YouTube star Jake Paul). Check out the full lineup of events below, and for more details visit summerstage.org.

Marijuana might not be legal in NYC (yet), but you can still get lit (figuratively) at these 4/20 events celebrating the most chilled-out day of the year. There’s a good range of ganja-related activities happening in the New York like hilarious comedy shows or screenings of the best stoner movies of all time. Disclaimer: We’re not telling you to smoke a roach, hit a bong or eat a brownie, but should you partake in the essence of the national holiday, listen to our playlist of the best weed songs. Once the severe case of the munchies kicks in—and you know it will—grab some grub from the best food trucks in town. RECOMMENDED: Full guide to NYC events in March
