Coney Island Music Festival

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Now in its second year, Coney Island Music Festival (located at Stillwell Ave between Surf Ave and the Boardwalk) brings an impressive slate of young artists to the beach for the low, low entry fee of $0. Yes, free. Folky indie-rock songwriter (Sandy) Alex G, who crafted one of our favorite albums of 2017, Rocket, headlines along with garage-rock singer Shannon Shaw, who released two strong albums already this year. Shaw's most recent triumph, Shannon in Nashville, pairs the powerful vocalist with the vintage soul sounds of Black Keys mastermind Dan Auerbach. The Veldt, Navy Gangs, Pow Pow Family Band, Public Practice and Queens singer-songwriter Juan Wauters round out the lineup. If those two-stages worth of bands aren't enough, you can find even more tunes at the concert's afterparty at Coney Art Walls.
