Nile Rodgers is in the midst of one of the best pop-culture comebacks in recent history after that whole “Get Lucky” thing. Now a major darling of festival promoters and pop artists alike, Nile is getting more skin in the game with the announcement of the FreakOut! Festival® set for Long Island, NY on August 4-5, 2015. He’s bringing Beck, Pharrell Williams, Chuck D, Janelle Monae, Slander, Q-Tip and a ton of other artists together for this one, and it sounds pretty sick if he really pulls off what he’s trying to accomplish:

Over two nights, Rodgers will create the ultimate mash-up between each artist’s distinctive sound and his own groundbreaking style as a songwriter, producer, and founder of CHIC. The FreakOut! Festival® is the only place to see this roster of incredible acts join Rodgers, and in some cases, perform a set of their own hits with CHIC. In conjunction with this extraordinary two-day event, Rodgers will also conduct recording sessions with featured artists at a private studio outside the festival grounds.

Here’s the full lineup and social media info if you’re going to try and attend this. Tickets are on sale here.
