2023 NYC SummerStage Concert / Performance Events Calendar

Below is the listing of SummerStage performances for the Summer of 2022 courtesy of the City Parks Foundation. Be sure to check on the corresponding links to be sure of changes or cancellations as well as whether entry to the event is ticketed or free. A good many of the items listed for SummerStage take place at the Rumsey Playfield along the 72nd Street Traverse within Central Park located closer to the Fifth Avenue entrance.

SummerStage is one of New York’s most beloved, broadly accessible, free outdoor performing arts festivals. It was founded in 1986 by the City Parks Foundation and has been presenting nearly 80 free and benefit performances in Central Park and neighborhood parks throughout the five boroughs to 217,000 fans every year. The performances showcase a variety of genres that represent the cultural fabric of New York City, such as jazz, hip hop, Latin, global, indie, contemporary dance, and more. Some of the notable artists who have performed at SummerStage include David Bowie, Elvis Costello, The Roots, Vampire Weekend, and Alicia Keys.

The 2023 season of SummerStage will run from June 3 to August 27 and will feature artists such as Hippo Campus, Indigo Girls, St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Juanes, Café Tacvba, Brent Faiyaz, Regina Spektor, and many more. The opening night on June 10 will celebrate the American blues with performances by Say She She, Mwenso & the Shakes, and DJ Alisa Ali. The season will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of hip hop with artists from New York City and around the world.
