Sept. 13 to 17 The Great Lawn at Lans­downe Park city­folk­fes­ti­

This folk-ish fes­ti­val turns the sprawl­ing Great Lawn at Lans­downe into a hub of mu­sic and mer­ri­ment. Ci­tyFolk, Blues­fest’s lit­tle brother, cov­ers the park and spreads across mul­ti­ple venues with a lineup that con­tin­ues to im­press, year after year. There’s folkrock trou­ba­dour Father John Misty (Sept. 16) and surfer-singer-song­writer Jack John­son (Sept. 14), along­side pop rock roy­alty Amanda Mar­shall and in­die rock su­per­group Bro­ken So­cial Scene (Sept. 15). The fa­bled Su­gar­man him­self, Ro­driguez (Sept. 17), will hit the Sun­day stage along­side such acts as NEFE and Ba­hamas. Well over 30 artists, both es­tab­lished and emerg­ing, make the mu­sic fes­ti­val world-class.
