Words by LargeUp Crew—
Here in New York, it’s almost summer—a.k.a. the season of free outdoor concerts all day, everyday. The granddaddy of them all is SummerStage, the series that turns Central Park (and other parks around the city) into a showcase for musicians and performing artists from around the world.
We’re excited to announce that, this summer, LargeUp is becoming a part of this venerable NYC tradition for the very first time. That’s right, we, along with Federation Sound (celebrating their 15th anniversary) are bringing dancehall and reggae—Chronixx and Zincfence Redemption, Junior Reid, and the Rice & Peas crew—to Central Park Summerstage on July 26, 100% free. The LargeUp show is one of a series of SummerStage shows commemorating Okayplayer’s own 15th anniversary, featuring a ton of great artists, including Guyana’s Blood Orange.
