Nile Rodgers, who has produced and co-written some of the music industry’s biggest hits including those by Madonna, David Bowie, Duran Duran, and Diana Ross, plans to bring East Enders of all ages together for a dance party at Martha Clara Vineyard on Monday night. The event will serve as the inaugural concert for All for the East End, a not-for-profit that seeks to support the other East End nonprofits.
Happy dance music has been promised by a range of performers selected by Mr. Rodgers, among them Chic, a band that he founded that was known for such songs as “Le Freak.”
Adam Lambert, known best from the eighth season of “American Idol” and soon to join the cast of “Glee,” will also perform. A mystery guest is also expected to take the stage with Mr. Rodgers.
Mystery Skulls, founded by the Los Angeles electronic artist Luis Dubuc, who fronts Daft Punk, will be in attendance too. Mr. Rodgers co-wrote the song “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk, which has been dubbed the anthem of the summer, according to a release, and is “the first song in history to go number one in 73 countries.”
Other musical guests will include Prince Paul, a disc jockey and hip-hop record producer native to Long Island, Chromeo, who will bring electro-funk, and Russell Peters, a veteran skratch D.J. who is also an award-winning Canadian actor.
The gates will open at 5 p.m. at Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, chosen for its central location to both forks and for its ability to accommodate the 5,000 attendees expected.
Bridgehampton National Bank, the event’s presenting sponsor, announced this week that it would buy a ticket for each one purchased, in a “buy-one-get-one” incentive available through the nonprofit’s Web site, aftee.org, where V.I.P. tickets are also an option.
General admission tickets cost $149, with a special price of $50 for East Enders and a limit of four per resident.
