The entertainment scene on Long Island this summer is going to be a breath of fresh air compared to last year, especially considering how many live performances will be taking place outdoors.

Unlike the summer of 2020, when neither the hills nor any other part of Nassau or Suffolk were alive with the sound of music, this year promises a wealth of concerts along with Shakespeare in the park, "Plays in the Garden," cool comedy and more crowd pleasers.

Despite the relaxed guidelines for gathering in public places, safety precautions such as mask wearing and proof of vaccination may be in place at many venues. Call or check an event's website before showing up for complete information.

Let's welcome back summer with this guide to 66 of the hottest shows (listed in chronological order) coming soon to an outdoor location near you plus a separate look at what's ahead at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.
