Central Park SummerStage

  • Music, Music festivals

Time Out says

Taking in a concert at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield is as essential a summer-in-New-York activity as a trip to Rockaway Beach. But the amazing outdoor shows aren't limited to that iconic venue: During SummerStage's three-month run, sponsored by the City Parks Foundation, a diverse roster of acts (past performers have included Pavement, Femi Kuti and the Positive Force, and Beach House) plays in green spaces throughout the city's five boroughs. And the best part: Aside from a few benefit shows (mostly staged in Central Park), concerts are free—the better for you to clutch a sweaty beer can as you sway along on a hot NYC night.
