Central Park in New York: SummerStage

For more than 25 years now, the City Parks Foundation has filled summers in the park with just about every sound under the sun. This New York institution has an ear for music of every type—M.I.A., Television, and Amadou & Mariam have all played in recent years, as have Zap Mama, Nortec Collective and Neko Case. Many of the shows are free, with a handful of benefits covering for them.

SummerStage is a NYC summer staple. You can catch acts big and small almost any day of the week on the main stage in Central Park. And many of the shows are even free to attend. There are plenty of food and drink options with many outposts that may be familiar from places like Brooklyn's Smorgasburg. It's the perfect summer night out for a live music fix.
