Below is the full schedule for the 2010 Seaside Summer Concert Series at Asser-Levy Park in Coney Island.

We don’t have confirmed dates for some of the later acts, but we’ve put them in the order that Marty Markowitz recently announced them during a local festival. The list doesn’t include “Salsa by the Sea” a.k.a. Latin Night, but we’ll add that when we hear about it.
