With ticketed events finally allowed to return to New York City this spring, the city’s longest-running music festival Capitol One City Parks Foundation SummerStage will reopen for business at the Rumsey Playfield (Central Park) and Marcus Garvey Park (Harlem) venues.
On Monday, City Parks Foundation, the non-profit that runs the SummerStage city-wide concert series, announced its first of hopefully many ticketed events for the 2021 season with an in-person concert from Dawes and Erin Rae scheduled for September 17th in Central Park. Tickets for the event go on sale starting this Friday, April 16th, at 10 a.m. ET. Prior to that, CPF has promised free music and dance performances throughout the summer.
According to reports, SummerStage will “follow all state and local regulations regarding large-scale outdoor events, including limited capacity and socially distanced seating.” To enter the venue, attendees will be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine and/or a negative COVID-19 test, while also partaking in health screenings.
All 2020 SummerStage events will also be streamed online, rights permitting.
