Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage and Sounds Australia are thrilled to present the return of THE AUSSIE BBQ SummerStage to Central Park, New York City on Saturday 15 June, in partnership with the American Australian Association.

What began 20 years ago in a carpark out the back of Emo’s in Austin, Texas has grown to become recognised globally as the place to discover the next generation of Australian talent. From Brighton to Bangalore, Singapore to SXSW, THE AUSSIE BBQ has been held in venues all around the world, and in June it will once again take place at SummerStage in Central Park.

Since its inception in 2019, THE AUSSIE BBQ SummerStage has drawn thousands of New Yorkers to Central Park each year to see and hear some of the best music coming out of Australia. Previous artists who have taken to the stage include Amy Shark, Baker Boy, Budjerah, G Flip, Haiku Hands, Hermitude, Peach PRC, Peking Duk, Spiderbait, The Teskey Brothers, Tkay Maidza and You Am I.
