Live Music. Back on The Rooftop.
Epic yet intimate. City views and unmatched sound. The Rooftop at Pier 17’s Summer Concert Series is back. After a long hiatus, the Seaport’s unique venue on the edge of the East River welcomes fans and an eclectic lineup back to the stage—and there’s still time to snag tickets.
The third season of the award-winning venue’s concert series is as star-studded as previous summers, with artists like Rise Against, Blackberry Smoke and Kesha already playing to exuberant crowds.
Some of the artists taking to the stage this month include Machine Gun Kelly (September 14), Lord Huron (September 16 & 17), Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit (September 24 & 25), and Rufus Wainwright & Joe González (September 30). The fun flows into October, with Mt. Joy & Trampled by Turtles (October 3), New Found Glory (October 8), and Rodrigo y Gabriela (October 10).
Music-lovers who’ve rocked out on The Rooftop before may recognize some familiar names on the 2021 lineup:
“Numerous artists who have previously played The Rooftop at Pier 17 are set to return this summer,” says Stacie George, Senior Vice President at Live Nation, the exclusive booking partner for the series. “There’s definitely something magical about The Rooftop at Pier 17 that has performers wanting to come back again and again.”
With its Brooklyn Bridge backdrop, open-air setting, and first-class amenities, The Rooftop has a lot to offer concert-goers, too. Heineken Green Zone ticketholders enjoy a reserved viewing area in front of the stage, with a dedicated bar. Other activations by the Seaport’s partners like Chase, Lincoln and Pepsi also elevate the experience. Increased cleaning throughout the venue keeps concerts safe for all, with high-touch areas sanitized hourly. Whether pre-gaming before a show, or keeping the night going afterwards, the Seaport has plenty of bars and restaurants perfect for pairing with a concert.
In the words of The Howard Hughes Corporation’s Saul Scherl, “This third season will be better than ever as we strive to continue to bring the biggest acts in the world to the Seaport.”
