SummerStage is returning to NYC parks this summer, and they announced their lineup of free shows at the beginning of the month. They've now added more free shows in Central Park, including Yo La Tengo and Mountain Movers on September 1, Valerie June on September 12, and a Bastille Day celebration on July 14.

They've also added to the lineup of free shows at Coney Island Amphitheater, where new additions include hip hop greats Stetsasonic and friends, for a 40th anniversary show called "Go Brooklyn!" on August 28, and a reggae and dancehall showcase, "Reggae Gold meets Soca Gold," presented in association with VP Records, on September 15.

Also new to the schedule are curated short films from Rooftop Films that will screen before each free show, including A Litany for Survival before Sun Ra Arkestra on July 24; The Service before The Originals on July 31; Spiritual First Aid Deliverables before Erica Campbell on September 11; and Ten Leaves Dilated Deliverables before Patti Smith and her Band on September 19.

Meanwhile, when the initial lineup was announced, SummerStage said that you'd need to request tickets to attend the free shows, for social distancing purposes. They've now given an update that ticket requests will no longer be required; free shows will be open to the public and first come, first served, as they've been in the past.

See the full lineup below.
