Presented by the Alliance for Coney Island, with support from NYC Council Member Mark Treyger along with producer Stephen Dima (Seaport Music Festival, 4Knots Music Festival, RiverRocks & more), the Coney Island Music Festival continues a long tradition of bringing cutting edge and experimental music together with iconic rock and pop acts.
Coney Island has been gathering New Yorkers and tourists alike with authentic programming in a unique setting for decades. The festival, occurring alongside Coney’s famed boardwalk will continue that legacy with an eye on the future, while also celebrating the rich history of this awe-inspiring Brooklyn neighborhood.
“Coney Island is a musical community, any day of the week you can hear various sounds up on the boardwalk and down the avenues,” said Alexandra Silversmith, Executive Director of the Alliance for Coney Island. “We are thrilled to share the spirit of music with all New Yorkers as we host the 3rd Annual Coney Island Music Festival, a free event with live entertainment on Stillwell Avenue. Bring your friends, family, and love for sound on July 20th!”
“Coney Island has long been a place outside of the ordinary, a space to live and play beyond normal convention,” adds Dima. “This place is very important to a city like New York, where people travel from all over the world in search of something that is real and authentic. We’re excited to bring together some truly original artists from local legends to great new artists to celebrate what not only makes Coney and Brooklyn great but ultimately, our world.”
