Here’s Everything We Know About the Chainsmokers’ Upcoming Drive-In Concert

On July 25, The Chainsmokers are bringing the people of posh Long Island enclave The Hamptons a bit “closer” through a drive-in performance for charity.

Presented by Jaja Tequila — a small batch spirit brand in which the duo are stakeholders — the show will raise money for myriad charities and include a host of talent playing for the socially distanced audience.

Here’s everything know about the show.

1. The Chainsmokers are coming out of seclusion for the performance. Currently on a break from social media, this concert will be one of the guys’ first shows of 2020. (They played a pre-Super Bowl show this past January and haven’t played any livestream sets thus far during quarantine.)

2. DJ D-Sol — the onstage alter ego of Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon — will open for The Chainsmokers, along with singer-songwriter Matt White.

3. The event is The Hamptons’  first-ever drive-in music fundraiser. It will take place at a 100-acre outdoor sculpture park.

4. The locals are getting involved, with Southampton’s Town Supervisor, Jay Schneiderman serving as one of the openers and and Southampton Mayor Jesse Warren MCing the event.

5. Tickets are hella pricey, but the money goes to a good cause. Tickets range from $1250 to $25,000, with all profits going to local charities including No Kid Hungry, Children’s Medical Fund of NY and Southampton Fresh Air Home.

6. Social distancing and some some? Check. The event will follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as all state and local health mandates. Before online ticket purchases are finalized, guests must complete an online COVID-19 questionnaire. Upon arrival, each person will be given a free face masks and have their temperatures taken by staff. Once parked, guests can access hand-sanitizing stations throughout the grounds. On-site restrooms which will be cleaned every 10 minutes.

7. The Chainsmokers have fond memories of The Hamptons. “We got our start DJing clubs like SL East,” the duo’s Alex Pall said in a recent interview with Hamptons Magazine. “I remember going out to RdV East, and they were booking these huge EDM acts like Avicii, Calvin Harris and deadmau5 in this barn that fit 500 people. You’d pay a small amount of money for a bed in these share houses with, like, 40 strangers. It was so fun. I’d literally leave my gallery job and sit in traffic for four hours.”
