The Chainsmokers Concert Promoters Fined $20k


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has leveled a $20,000 fine after a concert, featuring The Chainsmokers, violated social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic.

Rolling Stone reports the show in the Hamptons over the Summer that drew criticism has now resulted in fines for the promoters.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that the town of Southampton "cannot approve permits for group gatherings without state approval."

The July drive-in concert was a Safe and Sound charity fundraiser.

Goers were supposed to stay in their cars, but social media posts appear to show large, maskless, crowds.

So now the promoters, NOT The Chainsmokers, are being fined $20,000
