    A Tuesday and Wednesday in early August, you say? FreakOut! Let's Dance!

    Composer, producer, arranger and guitarist Nile Rodgers will produce, perform at and host the FOLD Festival, an all-star concert to be presented at Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, Long Island on August 4 and August 5, 2015.

    Co-produced by music industry veteran Michael Ostin and Peter Herman of Nile Rodgers Productions, the FOLD (FreakOut! Let's Dance) Festival is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime event that will feature Rodgers and his multi-platinum band CHIC sharing the stage with music legends and contemporary trailblazers.

    If you are New York-local, here are three reasons to go!

    1. Beck, Duran Duran, Paloma Faith, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Chaka Khan, Janelle Monáe, Q-Tip, Keith Urban, and Pharrell Williams are on the bill. In both scope and size, it's the first music festival of its kind on Long Island.

    2. The FreakOut! Festival® is the only place to see this roster of incredible acts join Rodgers, and in some cases, perform a set of their own hits with Chic. In conjunction with this extraordinary two-day event, Rodgers will also conduct recording sessions with featured artists at a private studio outside the festival grounds.

    3. As the last exit off the Long Island Expressway, the Town of Riverhead is the gateway to both The Hamptons and the North Fork of Long Island, and offers the perfect backdrop to enjoy and appreciate the uniqueness of the FreakOut! Festival. Riverhead is known for its commitment to cultural events, as well as being a warm, friendly, and welcoming township distinguished by its vineyards, good wine, good food, and good people with an appreciation for the arts. The Suffolk Theater in downtown Riverhead will also be hosting The Official FreakOut! Festival After Party from 11PM to 4AM. Hotels and the Riverhead business community as well as The East End Arts are involved in the festivities. There is easy downtown access for ticket holders to Martha Clara Vineyard via Festival Bus Shuttles!
