Summer Music Preview 2021

June 21 is a big day … it’s the first day of summer 2021 (it officially began at 11:32 p.m. EDT on June 20). It’s also considered the longest day of the year because it’s the day with the most daylight.

It’s also Fête de la Musique, or World Music Day, making it the perfect excuse for us to whip up a Summer Music Preview.

Here’s what’s coming out in the months ahead.

Enjoy your summer, enjoy your music.
