The July 4th Fireworks show at Jones Beach is back for another year—and organizers are urging Long Islanders to arrive early for the dazzling Independence Day celebration. The fireworks show begins at 9:30 p.m. but Independence Day revelers should plan to get to Jones Beach several hours earlier.
From punk to bluegrass, pop to classical, music festivals celebrating specific genres and local artists alike can be seen and heard across Long Island virtually every weekend this summer through Labor Day. Here are eight upcoming music festivals coming to LI this summer:
About two hours into the show, menacing clouds moved in over the open-air amphitheater and with almost no time to run for cover, lightning struck, thunder rumbled, and torrential rain poured down over the audience in the theater and those on the much-too-long lines for food. Then, the show went on.
Mary Chapin Carpenter serenades The Space at Westbury, Long Island Pridefest returns to Huntington, Johnny Mathis takes the stage at NYCB Theatre at Westbury, BLI Summer Jam gets Nikon at Jones Beach Theater dancing, Eternal Con invades The Cradle of Aviation and Silent Majority rocks Revolution Bar & Music Hall, plus so much more to do this week on Long Island!
KTUphoria, the annual festival of dance and pop music, kicked off the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater 2016 summer concert calendar Saturday with a star-studded lineup of current acts and comeback kids.

Playing follow the leader in sunny skies over Long Island, three World War II-era ex-military planes came daringly close to one another before breaking off, leaving white smoke trials in their wake. The daredevil pilots flying this trio of SNJs—the U.S. Navy version of the T-6 Texan, a trainer plane dubbed “the pilot maker”—were practicing their routine in advance of the 13th annual Bethpage at Jones Beach Air Show this Memorial Day weekend.
The two-day event will for the first time in the show’s 13-year history feature three jet teams, most notably the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. Rounding out the all-star jet trio are Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds and France’s Breitling Jet Team. New York State park officials said the weekend’s generous forecast, combined with a star-studded cast of pilots, could portend record-breaking attendance of 400,000-plus guests.
