Pollstar (11/10/22) King, Ariel
SummerStage festival in New York’s Central Park has forged an exclusive partnership with Live Nation, which will book all ticketed benefit concerts between June and October. "Live Nation has a fantastic roster of artists whom we are certain will follow in the SummerStage tradition by including some of the most important legacy artists and today's hottest young musicians, attracting New Yorkers of all ages, while also helping raise money to keep the majority of our festival free-of-charge for everyone," stated City Parks Foundation Executive Director Heather Lubrov. The Central Park venue reopened in 2019 following a $5.5 million renovation, which installed a bigger stage, a new sound system, LED screens, new seating areas, greater concessions and augmented stage/venue lighting. "Being a New Yorker for over 10 years now, I've spent plenty of nights at SummerStage shows and have witnessed first-hand the significant upgrades City Parks Foundation has implemented to the venue over the last three years," said Stacie George with SVP Bookings. "It's truly an honor and a privilege to book the most prestigious play in New York City's Central Park and we're already looking ahead to the 2023 summer season, aiming to make it the best one yet."
