Every summer, music festivals with big-time musicians and bands from around the globe are a dime a dozen—and our area is no exception. Sure, NYC hosts huge concerts all of the time, but Long Island is also home to one of the summer’s biggest musical events, the Great South Bay Music Festival 2019. This four-day festival is full of good music, solid local grub and good times all around.
