Headliners for the 2016 FOLD Festival have been announced and concertgoers can once again expect big-name acts to take the stage in Riverhead this summer.
The show will feature headliners like DNCE featuring Joe Jonas, Earth Wind & Fire and Bette Midler, according to an announcement on the festival’s website today. The Village People and Long Island’s own De La Soul are expected to perform on the final night. The three-day event,, which will once again be held at Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, will take place Friday through Sunday, Aug. 12-14.
Nile Rodgers Productions is once again curating the second annual festival, which debuted with a two-day concert last August. Expect the Grammy-winning music producer and his band Chic to take the stage each night.
This year’s lineup was originally scheduled to be announced May 7 at a press event at the Suffolk Theater in Riverhead. A representative from Nile Rodgers Productions did not immediately release any additional details about the concert.
Early-bird tickets, which start at $99 for single-day general admission, are now on sale. There are also gold, as well as premium platinum packages, that include a meet and greet with Rodgers, access to the VIP tent and lounge, VIP parking, access to VIP restrooms and more. A three-day platinum package is listed for $1,350.
Last June’s FOLD Festival lineup featured big-name music acts such as Beck, Duran Duran, Chaka Khan, Keith Urban, and Pharrell Williams. This time around, local bands and performing artists will also get a chance to join the show, organizers have said.[blankslate_pages id=”d53a0b4052a996″ type=”card” show_photo=”true” utm_content=””][/blankslate_pages]
