The streets definitely will be filled with music this summer — there are so many outdoor concerts planned for NYC!
There’s Bryant Park’s Picnic Performances, then the New York Philharmonic is bringing back its “Concerts in the Parks” series, and of course, Lincoln Center is turning into a giant dance floor with music and dance performances all season long.

“Over the years, New Yorkers have made Hudson Yards their home-away-from-home and we continually strive to show up for the greatest community in the world. This summer, we will be adding a weekly concert series offering yet another reason to gather with your friends, family, and colleagues to have fun and spread joy,” said Stacey Feder, Chief Marketing Officer of Hudson Yards.
“With our partners at Wells Fargo, we are able to offer something for everyone, from foodies to families to music and movie buffs, consistently making Backyard one of the most vibrant outdoor destinations in the City.”
