Each year, Afropop produces a summer concert guide for great music happening in New York, NY. See our card for 2017 below! For the rest of you, don’t worry, we also produce an Afropop Worldwide program each year showcasing some of the great musical acts and concerts going on across North America. Listen to Summer 2017 Concert Preview and be sure to check out the new card design below!
If you are planning to attend any or all of the shows listed below, please consider volunteering with Afropop for advance entry and the opportunity to hang out with the Afropop staff. Volunteers will hand out summer concert guides while enjoying the entertainment, and share Afropop Worldwide‘s stories of the African planet with concert-goers. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with “volunteer” in the subject line to learn more. Whether or not you are volunteering, please stop by and say hello!
