New York’s largest free performing arts festival hosted an 80s-themed gala to mark its 30th anniversary last night, June 22.

The SummerStage event in Central Park was hosted by founder Joe Kilian, Chairman David Moore and their team as an homage to 1986- the year the festival was launched.

The gala’s honoree was rock music manager and producer, Steven Leber, who is responsible for many of the acts appearing at SummerStage over the years.

After a cocktails reception and family-style dinner, a 1986-inspired concert was held for guests. Debbie Harry, Dionne Warwick, Angelique Kidjo and Colin Hay all gave performances.

The gala marks the beginning of this year’s SummerStage line up, beginning with a concert from Brit rockers, The Kooks, and Australian Atlas Genius on June 24.
