New York City, the latest festival announcement is imploring you, “Freak out! Let’s dance!”
Nile Rodgers, Grammy-winning composer, guitarist, and producer, is putting on FOLD Festival and is offering up one of the most diverse lineups this summer to get fans to do just that.
FOLD Festival is taking place in Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead on Aug. 4-5. The mixed lineup mentioned includes musical acts from many walks of life, including hip hop, alternative rock, country, R&B, funk and soul. Rodgers and his band CHIC are one of the many headliners of the two-day all-star event. Other top acts include Beck, Pharrell Williams, Chaka Khan, Keith Urban and many more.
One of the more interesting features of the festival is that Rodgers will be conducting recording sessions with certain artists at a private studio outside of the festival grounds. Details have been scant, but it’s an interesting twist with some potential follow-up to the festival-goers and even those that don’t attend.
All tickets can be purchased at the festival’s website, with general admission tickets costing $137, VIP $399, and Ultra VIP $999.
The lineup for each night has been released, but more acts are expected to be announced. Both nights will be hosted by CHIC, featuring Nile Rodgers, with Grandmaster Melle Mel playing the role of emcee.
