Lincoln Center Announces Over 100 Performances For August
Published July 25, 2006

The 36th annual Lincoln Center out of Doors festival has finalized its gigantic lineup of events and artists, which features over a hundred musical performances over a period spanning nearly a month.

The festival will kick off with a night of Latin rhythm on Friday, August 4, and conclude with two nights of American, Caribbean and African themes, ending Sunday night, August 27.

This year’s special focus, however, will be on “The Spirit of the Blues.” On August 18, blues master Guy Davis will pair off with jazz percussion phenom Chico Hamilton for an evening of “American Blues Raises the Roof.”

The festival will also highlight world, jazz, country, hip-hop and other popular genres, including non-musical performances in dance, theater and spoken word, as well as interactive family programs representing traditional and contemporary arts and culture from around the world.

Festival coordinators expect to draw around 200,000 fans in total, the average from past years, to the events which are entirely free of charge.

Events will take place on four venues: Damrosch Park (62nd Street near Amsterdam Avenue), the South Plaza (62nd Street behind the New York State Theater), the North Plaza (just north of the Metropolitan Opera House) and the Josie Robertson Plaza (Columbus Avenue and 64th Street)

A full schedule of musical performances can be found at the following address:
