Out of all the best things to do outside in NYC, attending an outdoor dance party is a must this summer. New York attractions including the city’s best parks host open-air grooves, but Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center is the Mac Daddy of them all.
For three weeks (June 26–July 14), toe-tappers can cut a rug beneath the stars and listen to live music performed by incredible artists such as the jazzy Harlem Renaissance Orchestra, '70s disco band Joe McGinty & The Loser's Lounge and U.K. soul outfit The James Hunter Six.
While the term “swing” is included in the title of this epic event, each bash (15 in total) covers a specific genre of dance, including disco, ballroom, mambo and more. Like last year, there are several late-night silent disco parties on select nights.
Tickets for this year’s event start at $17 and are on sale now. Grab ‘em while they’re hot. Get ready to cut loose, kick off your work shoes and shake it like no one's watching.
