Wiyaala and Shatta Wale To Perform At SummerStage Festival On Aug 13th


Shatta Wale and Wiyaala have been confirmed for this year’s edition of SummerStage festival,  New York City’s beloved outdoor performing arts festival, bringing nearly 90 free and benefit shows to Central Park and 12 neighborhood parks across the five boroughs.

Returning with a full season of shows this year, SummerStage will celebrate New York’s revival and the festival’s return to 12 local community parks across the city celebrating culture at a time when neighborhood parks have never been more crucial to the city’s wellbeing.

The season will once again showcase established and emerging artists, presenting distinctly New York genres including salsa, jazz, hip-hop, indie rock, reggae, Afrobeat, soul, pop, global, contemporary dance, and many more.

The multiple award winning Ghanaian reggae and dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, and globally acclaimed afropop artiste, Wiyaala, who are slated to perform at the Crotona Park on Saturday Aug. 13,  are expected to bring their incredible catalog and take audiences on an artistic journey across the world with their highly rated performances.

Since its inception, 4 decades ago, SummerStage prides itself on creating a season that brings together compelling artists, diverse music styles and cultural offerings to engage fans from all over the city – and the world – and the 2022 season will continue that legacy.

 According to the organizers, all performances will be free and open to the public, except for benefit concerts, and selected shows will also be live-streamed.
