Summerstage 2014 has showcased free music acts to the delight of New Yorkers all summer long. Along with the heat outside, the live music will wind down before the end of August.

Earlier in the summer, popular acts played free SummerStage shows -- one being the legendary violin-wielding whistler of indie folk, Andrew Bird. The park also hosted paid shows for big name artists like Ingrid Michaelson and Gavin Degraw. Concertgoers have three more chances this year to see live music for free at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park.

Synth R&B crooner Blood Orange headlines an OKPlayer show on August 16 with indie songwriter Moses Sumney (who has a voice with an essence like Eamon) and a soft ambient indie pop musician, Sean Nicholas Savage.

On Sunday the 17th, Musiq Soulchild will play R&B radio station WBLS's annual live festival. The event returns to Central Park for its sixth consecutive year.

The following weekend, Summerstage will take a Latin twist for its final free show of the year. DJ Alexa Sensation will play the La Mega Tropical Festival. This event is in its seventh year.

The shows on August 16 and 17 take place at 7 PM like most other Summerstage sets, but La Mega opens doors at 2 PM on August 24.

Entrance to Summerstage is near 69th Street and 5th Avenue in Manhattan. Admission is free, but limited for the three remaining free shows. Doors open 90 minutes before show time.
