How to see a concert at Jones Beach this summer

Here's your guide to all the concerts happening at Jones Beach Theater this summer

Written by
Andrew Frisicano

With a bay view behind the stage, Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater (as it’s now called) provides one of the area’s most picturesque spots to see a summer concert. Yes, you’ll have to plan ahead to make your way there: The venue is about an hour from Manhattan by car. If you don’t have a friend with wheels, the LIRR is an option, though you’ll need to take a bus (or a ride share) to complete your trip. But it’s worth doing at least once just to see an outdoor concert next one of the area's best beaches. Find the whole season's schedule below.
