The planned performances cross genres and include hip-hop, Latin, indie rock, contemporary dance, world music, and the annual Charlie Parker Jazz Festival.
The New York City outdoor performing arts festival will bring nearly 90 free and benefit shows to Central Park and 12 neighboring parks across Manhattan’s five boroughs. Also scheduled to perform are The Cribs, Samba the Great, Angel Olsen, and Waxahatchee.
“We are so happy to be back in local neighborhood parks after a two-year hiatus and to once again build our newly refurbished flagship concert venue in Central Park,” said Heather Lubov, City Parks Foundation’s Executive Director.
“Parks have always been neighborhood gathering spaces, but the pandemic brought to light just how critical parks are to our city’s health. We are thrilled to bring neighbors together in their parks to enjoy a diverse, representative line-up reflective of our city’s rich cultural fabric.”
