14) Gather Outdoors Festival
Of course, The Big Apple hosts music festivals year round, but summer is the time to truly immerse yourself in any and all styles of music, from hip-hop to electronic, rock to salsa. My suggestion? So, which festivals in New York made the cut?
Summer concerts in New York cover every genre of music you'll want to jam out to, from jazz to country to pop to folk. This summer will be especially festive, with the 50th anniversary of Woodstock a Woodstock 50 concert is reportedly in the works for Watkins Glen August 16—18 , a revamped Central Park SummerStage experience in New York City, and much more. Through September 26; New York; Prices vary. The Ridge in Le Roy basically turns the entire summer into one long music festival, by holding different themed Jam Weekends throughout the season. May 31 — June 1 is Southern Rock Weekend, with headliners. The Ridge itself is not only a concert venue but also a campground, so pick your weekend and bring your tent for this perfect combo of music and the outdoors.
