Capital One announces SummerStage Anywhere

Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage is thrilled to announce the launch of its digital series SummerStage Anywhere. The platform will launch on Saturday, June 6th at 7 PM EST with a SummerStage original performance by native New Yorker and pop phenom MAX. The performance will be featured on the SummerStage Anywhere website and streamed exclusively on the SummerStage YouTube channel. Throughout the month of June, SummerStage Anywhere will feature performances each weekend.


The series will debut on June 6 with MAX performing a love letter to New York. Called a “Young Pop God” by GQ, MAX was named a “top popstar to watch” by Billboard and was nominated for “Best New Pop Artist” at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards. The Billboard top-pop star’s double-platinum hit single “Lights Down Low” earned half a billion streams globally. 


On June 13, LAMC (Latin Alternative Music Conference) will bring its annual showcase digitally to SummerStage Anywhere. Hosted by Los Angeles’ KCRW radio DJ Raul Campos, LAMC at SummerStage Anywhere will feature an exclusive showcase from key voices in the Latino LGBTQ community including pop singer Kany Garcia, hip hop artist Mabiland, indie electro-pop musician Javiera Mena and rock band Circo. These artists from Colombia, Chile, and Puerto Rico will come together with original performances on LAMC’s Twitch channel. SummerStage Anywhere will also host the official afterparty with a DJ Takeover featuring sets from RaulCampos and Latin Grammy-winning artist Cheo, formerly of Los Amigos Invisibles. 


On June 19, SummerStage Anywhere will celebrate the 155th anniversary of Juneteenth, the nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States, with a digital day of dance. Tribute performances will be presented on SummerStage’s Instagram channel culminating in a performance on SummerStage’s YouTube channel, featuring Jamel Gaines’ Creative Outlet Dance Theatre and poet Carl Hancock Rux, and a panel discussion led by Executive Artistic Director of The Billie Holiday Theatre, Dr. Indira Etwaroo

Closing out the June programming is Grammy Award-winning Beninese singer-songwriter, actress and activist Angélique Kidjo. SummerStage alumna Kidjo will bring her Afropop world fusion sound to an exclusive performance on SummerStage Anywhere’s YouTube channel, followed by a live Q&A session on June 26.


Following June, SummerStage Anywhere will be home to a one-of-a-kind digital content series highlighting genres that were born in or deeply represent New York — hip hop, salsa, jazz, global, indie, contemporary dance. The summer series will include weekly content segments including interviews with and performances by iconic artists, neighborhood tours with artists, and arts engagement for youth.  For a full schedule of upcoming programming, please visit summerstageanywhere.org

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
