Chainsmokers Concert Promoter Fined $20,000 For Violating COVID-19 Protocols”

Andrew Cuomo has leveled a $20,000 fine after a concert, featuring electronic duo, The Chainsmokers violated social distancing rules amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The fine levied against promoter In the Know Experiences is for holding a non-essential gathering and failure to enforce mask wearing, according to the governor.

A press release added, "In addition, the event was not held in accordance with other safety measures outlined in the permit application and promotional materials, and created conditions that increased the risk of spreading COVID-19 in NY".

Similarly, New York's 56th governor unveiled the results of the probe in a tweet, recently writing: "Following an investigation into the Chainsmokers concert in the Hamptons this summer, the promoters will be fined $20,000 for violating public health law". "Further, the Town of Southampton can not approve permits for group gatherings without State approval".

More than 2,150 people attended the event, according to an investigation by the Health Department, exceeding the maximum allowable capacity per the special event permit. In addition, DOH said the event was not held in accordance with other safety measures outlined in the permit application and promotional materials, and created conditions that increased the risk of spreading COVID-19 in NY.

In The Know Experiences declined to comment to the L.A. Times about Cuomo's announcement.

The concert was held at a 100-acre lot transformed into a drive-in for the event, and a concert-goer on Twitter posted show footage, noting "no social-distancing during a pandemic; we may be doomed".

In July, the promoters issued the following statement to Billboard: "Guests were also instructed that they would not be allowed to leave their designed spots for any reason other than to use the restroom facilities".
