With the start of summer comes the return of outdoor concerts and festivals. Here are a few options around the city.
One of the best things about summer in New York is the wide range of free outdoor activities. Prospect Park Bandshell is host to Celebrate Brooklyn!, a concert series that includes plenty of free shows by well-known musical acts. This year a variety of musicians from different genres—like bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles, ballet company Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal and hip-hop artist Shaggy —are all scheduled to perform.
