RIVERHEAD - Country music star Keith Urban and Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers rocked the night away at the first annual FOLD Festival.

Hundreds of music fans packed Martha Clara Vineyard Tuesday night for the star-studded concert.

Pharrell Williams, Duran Duran, Beck and dozens of other big-name acts lit up the North Fork on the first night of the two-day mega-concert.

The FOLD Festival is the brainchild of superstar producer Nile Rodgers. The acronym FOLD stands for "Freak Out" and "Let's Dance," which are two of Rodgers' hit songs.

Rodgers says that he loves the beauty of Long Island's wine country and thought it would be the perfect venue for a summer concert.

This was the first FOLD Festival, but it won't be the last. Rodgers says that he has already booked Martha Clara Vineyard for another concert next summer.
