Imagine hearing your favorite musical acts, often entirely for free, in the city center of Manhattan.

Some of this year’s talented headliners include BTS, Keith Urban, Ellie Goulding, Chance the Rapper, Hozier, Ciara, and Pit Bull. But the daily variety of performances ranges from The Metropolitan Opera Summer Recital Series to Revolutionaries En Pointe: The Trucks Celebrate Stonewall 50, and the list continues.
