In The Know Experiences, JAJA Tequila and Invisible Noise Productions Brings ‘Safe & Sound’ to the Hamptons
This Saturday, July 25, the Hamptons’ first drive-in fundraiser concert, ‘SAFE & SOUND,’ comes to Nova’s Ark Project in Water Mill. The event, produced by In The Know Experiences and Invisible Noise Productions in partnership with JAJA Tequila will be headlined by The Chainsmokers.
The Grammy Award-winning duo are returning to their Hamptons roots to perform in a unique outdoor experience at-a-distance, with reserved parking zones and a variety of health-compliant games and experiences.
In The Know Experiences co-founder Seth Kaplan spoke with us to break down the event.
The name of the event is “Safe & Sound”, it seems like that’s a fun play on words! Is there a tie-in to current times?
We came up with the ‘Safe & Sound’ fundraiser to be an intimate platform for artists to connect with fans in unique ways through sounds in a controlled and safe environment. The Coronavirus crisis has taken a major toll on many families and individuals across the globe and we wanted to bring a new live event concept to life by giving communities a sense of celebration and closeness that they’ve been missing, in a safe and enjoyable way.
There’s a lot of sensitivity surrounding large gatherings such as this. We imagine every precaution will be taken to ensure everyone’s health and safety. Can you walk us through how the evening will playout in that sense?
Following guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as all state and local health mandates, before ticket purchases are deemed final through purchase on Safeandsound2020.com/JAJA, guests are required to complete an online COVID-19 questionnaire. Upon event arrival, each individual in the car will be provided complimentary face masks and will have their temperatures taken by staff who are required to wear face masks and gloves for the duration of the evening. Once concertgoers park at their designated zone, they will have access to hand-sanitizing stations placed throughout the grounds, as well as the ability to use on-site restrooms which will be disinfected every 10 minutes. Designated parking zones are 6 feet apart to adhere to social distancing parameters. Designated drivers and responsible drinking is expected and will be enforced; signatures are required on the pre-event waiver.
In addition to a headlining set from The Chainsmokers, what else will the event entail?
Given that this fundraiser is in Water Mill, NY and The Chainsmokers got their start DJ’ing out East, we wanted to tap into charities that our other performers such as David Solomon (DJ D-Sol), Matt White, and Southampton’s Town Supervisor, Jay Schneidermanalso had personal connections to. Throughout the evening, there will be a variety of experiences and special packages available – a few of those are Heineken®‘s innovative alcohol-free beer Heineken® 0.0, BrightFox Hydration beverages, premium canned cocktails by VIDE, specialty sunglasses by Zenni, MCT and protein coffee by Super Coffee, custom dinners by Sushi By Bou, burgers provided by Schweid & Sons, bagels + bites by The Original Goldberg’s Famous Bagels as well as a curated selection of luxury CBD products from New York based botanicals company oHHo.
All profits from the evening will be donated to No Kid Hungry, Southampton Fresh Air Home and Children’s Medical Fund of New York.
