From the release:

Always wanted to host a concert in a park for Make Music New York? This is your chance!

Permits for 86 parks have been approved for Make Music New York this year — and we want YOU to have one! What does this mean? It means that you get to program music in that park for June 21 (including your own ensemble, friends, or musicians you choose from our matchmaking website), and in return, you agree to be present in the park for the entire length of the concert. It’s easy and it’s free.

A few rules to know when planning a park concert: 

  • No more than four hours of amplified sound will be allowed per location per day.
  • Vending is not allowed.
  • It is not legal to drive vehicles onto park property.
  • MMNY cannot arrange for access to electricity in New York City Parks. Be prepared to perform “unplugged” or to bring your own power source.

Otherwise, enjoy this unique opportunity to use the space, free of charge. What you do with it is up to you!

Choose your dream park from the full list below and email [email protected] with your choice. We’ll confirm if it’s still available, and if so, give you instructions for next steps. Parks will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. And remember, registration ends April 29th – all concert arrangements must be finalized by this date.
