New York City’s SummerStage in Central Park will be getting a facelift for their 2019 season. The venue will undergo $5 million worth of upgrades to improve the overall experience for both fans and the artists. The City Parks Foundation has shared a video previewing what it will look like when it reopens next year.
The 5,500-capacity space “will be transformed with a new stage, new sound system, increased lighting, upgraded backstage areas, raised seating, and an improved concert-going experience for all guests.” Among the new additions will be LED screens on stage and at positions to the left and right of the stage, a new sound system designed by Acoustic Distinctions and the removal pathways that currently cross in front of audiences relocating the circulation around the perimeter.
