There are so many great places to take in a concert or a show here on the Island. From beach-front venues to cozy amphitheaters, there’s literally something for everyone’s taste. Whether you choose to go hard, or not-so-hard, we bring you this year’s winners for Best Concert Venue on Long Island.
Long Islanders Voted Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh Best Concert Venue on Long Island!
1 Nikon at Jones Beach Theater
1 Ocean Pkwy., Wantagh. 516-221-1000. www.jonesbeach.com
The only thing that could make this venue better would be if it were warm enough year-round to keep booking concerts at Jones Beach Theater in the off-season, not just summertime. But we wouldn’t want to have it enclosed and give up the perfect sunset views over Zach’s Bay as we watch some of our favorite bands take the stage at this unique open-air venue. We’ve made so many memories here, well, we can’t remember them all!
