This month, don’t miss these hot happenings around the world.
New York // One fine day in June, Fifth Avenue grants its greatest gift to art lovers: nine of America’s greatest museums, three short hours and zero admission fees. Manhattan’s Museum Mile Festival allows residents and visitors the chance to marvel at works inside Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, among others. Sneak a peek at the MET’s inaugural Anna Wintour Costume Center exhibit or Goya’s Altamara family portraits—never before seen as a group. Kid-friendly activities and musical performances dot the mile long path. Art history never felt so good. June 10, 6-9 p.m. Fifth Avenue.
Minneapolis // One of the country’s largest Pride celebrations, Twin Cities Pride Festival commences with a special presentation by delightfully raunchy funny-woman Margaret Cho. The weekend rolls on with a parade, a rainbow run and numerous concert events, including performances by emerging pop star Betty Who and ’90s Euro-vocalist Thea Austin. June 26-29. Venues vary by event.
Nashville // Less than an hour southeast of Music City, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival stands 13 years strong on a 700-acre Manchester farmstead. Despite its comparatively young status in the festival world, the event draws a staggering number of stars for the weekend of performances. This year, Kanye West, Elton John and Frank Ocean top the headliner list. June 12-15. Great Stage Park.
Paris // Fans of fine ballet wait with baited breath for the premier of this compilation—two separate works, Dances at a Gathering and Psyché, choreographed by Jerome Robbins and Alexei Ratmansky, respectively. Both dances project near-phantasmal qualities as members of The Paris Opera Ballet (some of the youngest professionals in the world) chassé and développé across the stage. June 19-July 7. Palais Garnier.
