If you're a music lover visiting New York City in the summer, a fun thing to do is attend one of the Central Park concerts sponsored by "Good Morning America." On Friday mornings from late May through early September, the morning TV show holds its Summer Concert Series. These live performances take place at Rumsey Playfield in New York City's Central Park from 7 to 9 a.m. Artists usually perform three or four songs.

Access to the concerts is free and open to all ages on a first-come, first-served basis as space allows. The concerts are open to walk-ups, but to ensure a spot, get free tickets at 1iota.com.

How to Attend 

Arrive at Central Park when it opens to the public at 6 a.m. Report to the corner of the East 72nd Street entrance on Fifth Avenue. From there, you'll be directed toward the concert area at Rumsey Playfield by a staff member holding a "1iota" sign.
