Back in February in our pre-pandemic times, The Chainsmokers scrubbed their social media and announced they were going on a hiatus to focus and work on their next album which for then they called TCS4.
While live music has been close to non-existent in the past few months, drive-in concerts have been cropping up around the world as a workaround to the live music experience while being able to maintain a safe distance among attendees ensuring their safety. The Chainsmokers recently announced they would be performing at one such drive-in concert called Safe & Sound Hamptons, which will be held as the name suggests, in The Hamptons on Long Island, NY.
The event which is being produced by In The Know Experiences & Invisible Noise will be held at Nova’s Ark Project on July 25. All profits from the event will be going towards No Kid Hungry, the Children’s Medical Fund of New York, and Southampton Fresh Air Fund among other local businesses.
The event with space to hold up to 600 cars will be divided into three sections, Gold, Platinum, and Super VIP. Starting at $1250 for a maximum of 4 guests, the event is far from being affordable, but all the same, is a fundraiser for a good cause.
The event will be headlined by The Chainsmokers, with an opening set by DJ D-Sol and a performance by Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman Band along with special guest Matt White. More details about the event and tickets can be found here.
Speaking to Page Six about the event, Alex Pall from the NYC-born duo said “While we’ve been recording our new album most of the year, it’s given us the opportunity to listen and learn about problems in our society and we have taken giving back and supporting change very seriously. Also, helping local small businesses in a place near and dear to us is the least we could do.”
