Nile Rodgers Productions is planning a two-day music, art and wine festival at Martha Clara Vineyards called “The Freak Out!” The festival is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 4 and 5.
Rodgers, a Grammy Award-winning performer, writer and producer and a member of the group Chic, was involved in a similar concert at Martha Clara two years ago and attempted to stage one last year, but had to cancel because of insufficient planning time.
The August concert would run from 3 to 11 p.m., with children’s music from 9 a.m. to noon. The promoters expect to sell 10,000 tickets for each day and said they will donate a portion of the proceeds to local charities.
The promoters have not yet identified either the festival performers or the charities that will benefit.
