Nile Rodgers wears many hats: a noted producer, frontman of Chic, collaborator of Daft Punk, to name a few. Now, he’s getting in on the festival game.
The first annual FreakOut! Let’s Dance Festival, curated and produced by Rodgers, takes place August 4th and 5th at Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, Long Island. The lineup is quite impressive featuring the likes of Beck, Duran Duran, Pharrell Williams, Janelle Monáe, Chaka Khan, Chuck D, Q-Tip, Paloma Faith, and — of course, Chic.

General admission, VIP, and Ultra VIP passes are now available through the festival’s website.
The launch of FreakOut! coincides with the release of Chic’s first new album in 21 years, It’s About Time. Below, watch the video for lead single “I’ll Be There”.
