There are so many fantastic, free concerts going on around Long Island this summer, but isn’t it a pain to try to find information on them? It feels like every site has bits and pieces of information, but there’s no exhaustive list to be found. While we may have missed a concert here or there, we’ve compiled the closest thing you’ll find to a list of all free outdoor concerts in Nassau County parks and beaches through the end of July! If we missed any concerts, be sure to let us know on our Facebook page!
