In an effort to create a more enjoyable experience as well as a comfortable and safe performance environment, Lincoln Center is expanding security measures for Midsummer Night Swing.

Beginning at 5:00 pm on all event days, entry to Damrosch Park will be limited to 3 access points. Each of these points will include a security/bag inspection performed by Lincoln Center Security.

Patrons who are already inside of the park are welcome to remain and enjoy the music from where they are, however, all bags will be subject to inspection.

Leave Your Baggage at Home

Bags and purses, regardless of size, may not be brought onto the dance floor. We strongly recommend that you leave your bags at home, but if you need to bring them, you must use the bag check in Damrosch Park for a fee of $3 per bag. Note: Passholders receive one free bag check per entry.
