Live Nation announces plans for a 60k capacity festival in New York’s Central Park

The planned event to be hosted at the famed park, given the title ‘The Official NYC homecoming concert’.

New York City is set to host an incredible 60,000 capacity festival in the world-famous Central Park. The event is touted to be organised by world-leading events organiser Live Nation.

The prospective location of the festival within the famed park is The Great Lawn. It will mark a return to live music events at a mass scale, being given the title ‘The Official NYC Homecoming Concert in Central Park’.

The event could take place in August, confirms New York mayor Bill de Blasio, the mayor says:

“This concert is going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s going to be an amazing line-up. The whole week is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before in New York City,” 

The line-up is yet to be announced, but the date of 21st August has been reserved with the promise of “eight iconic stars”, according to renowned producer Clive Davis who is helping curate the line-up.

Clive Davis is known for his work with legends Janis Joplin, Whitney Houston and Bruce Springsteen. He went on to say:

“I can’t think of a better place than the Great Lawn of Central Park to be the place where you say that New York is reopening,”

The homecoming event will be, for the most part, with 70% of tickets allocated to those who are vaccinated. The remaining tickets will go to those unvaccinated, allowing for vaccinated and unvaccinated sections of the crowd, plus VIP passes for a small number of attendees.

With clubs now permitted to open at full capacity again, provided attendees have been vaccinated, they can attend with no masks or social distancing. This announcement will demonstrate another positive step in the right direction to a full reopening of New York State.
