One of the most well-liked, widely accessible, free outdoor performing arts festivals in New York, the festival offers free live performances in all genres.


Shatta Wale, a reggae-dancehall artist from Ghana, Wiyaala, Dj Freshyk, and a host of other African and worldwide music icons are among the headliners for the August 13 concert


The 2022 season of SummerStage will carry on the tradition of bringing together some of the most prominent musical figures in the world who embody a variety of musical genres and cultural offerings, including jazz, hip hop, Latin, global, indie, and contemporary dance.

Erika Elliott, the Executive Artistic Director of SummerStage, made the following statement in a formal news release:


“For more than three decades, we have been honored to call New York our home. It is the epitome of a global metropolis. Salsa, jazz, and hip-hop are particularly New York genres, along with indie, reggae, Afrobeat, soul, modern dance, and a lot more, that are presented at local neighborhood parks as part of SummerStage.


We transform neighborhood parks into lively, open performance venues. There is simply no better place to enjoy music than here, at this famous location, among the trees. Come see live performances by renowned musicians and uncover tomorrow’s stars at the event.

Shatta Wale’s group of friends and Enoch Kofi Bannerman, CEO of restless media, both expressed their excitement about partnering with him on the music promotion.


Shatta Wale has had a remarkably huge impact on the music scene in Ghana and throughout most of Africa. I am convinced that his performance at Summerstage will be another significant step because I have known him for a while,” he remarked.


Media executive and premier music partners founder Abass Akeju expressed excitement about the possibility of collaborating with the organization, praising the endeavor to place a prominent talent from Ghana on a worldwide scale and naming the Ghanaian music industry as one of the fastest-growing in Africa.
