Seaside Summer Concerts
The Seaside Summer Concert Series, now in its 35th year, is the largest free outdoor music series in New York. Throughout the years, the Thursday-night series has attracted top-name classic rock, pop, oldies, contemporary and Latin performers, including Aretha Franklin, The Monkees, Cheap Trick, Earth, Wind & Fire, The B52s, and many more.
In lieu of the proposed construction of the Coney Island Amphitheater down the block from the West 21st street site that we have used for the past three summers, we decided that it was best not to produce the concerts this summer and put our energy and resources into planning for the future when we have a permanent home.
So after 35 years and hundreds of thousands of people enjoying our free shows, the Seaside Summer Concert Series is taking the summer off. We look forward to returning to Coney Island better than ever!
