The festival features three weeks of free music, dance, film and spoken word. Events are held at the plazas surrounding Lincoln Center and at the Center’s Damrosch Park outdoor stage.
Some of the highlights of this year’s festival include performances by Mavis Staples & Joe Henry, Margo Price & Lukas Nelson, Sun Ra Arkestra, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Peter Wolf, and NPR Music’s Turning the Tables Live.
Events are free and admission is on a first-come-first-served basis. Gates for most performances open one hour before the event.
