New York City’s SummerStage Details 2022 Season

Today, City Parks Foundation announced the details for the 2022 season of Capitol One City Parks Foundation SummerStage–New York City’s outdoor performing arts festival–set to bring nearly 90 free and benefit shows to Central Park and 12 neighborhood parks across the five boroughs this summer.

After a two-year hiatus, the citywide summer-long event is set to celebrate the city’s well-being by showcasing both established and emerging artists, presenting Jazz, hip-hop, indie rock, reggae, Afrobeat, soul, pop, global, contemporary dance, salsa and more. Aside from Central Park, hosting parks include Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, Von King Park and The Coney Island Amphitheater in Brooklyn, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, Crotona Park in the Bronx and Corporal Thompson Park in Staten Island.

“We are so happy to be back in local neighborhood parks after a two-year hiatus and to be able to once again build our newly refurbished flagship concert venue in Central Park,” said Heather Lubov, City Parks Foundation’s Executive Director in a press release. “Parks have always been neighborhood gathering spaces, but the pandemic brought to light just how absolutely critical parks are to our city’s health. We are thrilled to be able to bring neighbors together in their parks to enjoy a diverse, representative line-up that is reflective of our city’s rich cultural fabric.”

The season will open on Saturday, June 11, in Central Park with a free performance from legendary Jazz pianist Herbie Hancock in association with the Blue Note Jazz Festival. From there, SummerStage will continue to take audiences on journeys around the globe via the five boroughs; on June 18, Aussie BBQ will introduce fans to Aboriginal electronic music duo Electric Fields, indie rock band You Am I and indigenous rapper Baker Boy. On June 21, Fête de la Musique will give Francophiles ce qu’ils aiment. Additionally, there will be events showcasing the culture and music of Brazil, South Korea and more. Other musical acts set to perform over the summer include Modest Mouse, Trombone Shorty, Dopapod, Belle & Sebastian, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Julien Baker, George Clinton, Sons of Kemet, George Lamond, Cory Henry, Tony Vega, Rainbow Kitten Surprise and many more.

“Each season, SummerStage has always presented a festival full of talent as diverse and
broad as the communities that host these performances in parks across all five boroughs,”
said Erika Elliott, Executive Artistic Director of SummerStage, in the release. “The artists we are presenting this season not only represent their own distinct cultures but reflect the global diversity that truly matches the spirit of New York City.”

Along with the musical guests, this summer’s season will see the return of a free outdoor screening of the Oscar and Grammy award-winning documentary Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) for its second year on June 17, commemorating Juneteenth. The film, which also opens the season of shows in neighborhood parks citywide, will be shown in Marcus Garvey Park (formally Mount Morris Park), where The Harlem Cultural Festival was situated more than 50 years ago. There will also be many dance performances throughout the season with a compelling lineup of women-led companies and BIPOC women leaders, including the Passionfruit Dance Company, Art Move Concept from France, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Urban Bush Women and more.
