Where to hear free music in Nassau and Suffolk


Throughout Long Island, there are summer concerts and many are for free. So take your pick of the following, bring blankets or chairs and sit back and listen to music ranging from classical to classic rock and everything in between.

This article is updated every year, and believe me, it takes a long time to gather all this information. So if you click on one of the town's concert links and it's not up-to-date, I'm working as hard as I can to get you the schedules. Keep checking back if the town you're interested in isn't updated yet. It will be soon.
