With roughly 30, 000 followers on Instagram, NY Popsup is changing the game on what it means to have fun. You don’t need to buy the most expensive ticket to attend the best concert. Rather, you can enjoy some live music in your backyard. All by local artists.
What is NY Popsup?
According to their website, “NY PopsUp is an expansive festival consisting of hundreds of pop-up performances that will regularly permeate the daily lives of New Yorkers. It is intended to revitalize the spirit and emotional well-being of New York citizens through the energy of live performance. The programming for NY PopsUp will be led by the interdisciplinary artist Zack Winokur, in partnership with a hand-selected council of artistic advisors who represent the diversity of New York’s dynamic performing arts scenes and artistic communities. NY PopsUp will launch on Saturday, February 20 and run through August 11, 2021 – with the 20th Anniversary of the Tribeca Film Festival and the Festival at Little Island at Pier 55 serving as its apexes.”
Here is a glimpse of what to expect at these live concerts, which seem to be upbeat and definitely entertaining. You for sure won’t get bored!
As you wander the streets of New York, feeling as though you are running out of things to do, please note there will always be something to do on the weekends. These pop-up concerts will be run through August. It’s safe to say you will be outside, or not, every weekend having a great time with your friends.
