After supplying all of the summer vibes with his two-song Summer Pack EP on Wednesday (July 11), Childish Gambino has announced the Summertime Starts Here experience taking place in New York City, Los Angeles, and London over the weekend. The Summertime Magic page is now the only account Gambino follows on Instagram. 

The first of the mysterious events takes place in New York on Friday (July 13) at Union Square from noon to 4 p.m. ET. NYC residents are also blessed with a secondary experience on Saturday (July 14) at Fort Greene Park, kicking off at noon and culminating at 4 p.m. ET.

Los Angeles also received a pair of events for the weekend. Saturday's experience goes down at the Santa Monica Pier from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. PT. On Sunday (July 15), the party moves to Fairfax High School, running at the same times as the previous day. London will have the experience for a total of nine hours on Saturday at Gunnersbury Park from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. GMT. 

Since the events overlap, it doesn't look like a string of Childish Gambino live performances are on the horizon. Gambino's Forever Childish fansite has speculated that the events are free of charge for patrons. The Atlanta creator is gearing up to head out on a headlining North American trek alongside Rae Sremmurd when the This Is America Tour kicks off in September. 

Check out the Summertime Starts Here event dates in full below. 

NYC - July 13, Union Square, 12 - 4 p.m. ET
