Coldplay is heading to Long Island for a special concert for SiriusXM subscribers on Aug. 7.

But where exactly remains a mystery. “The private performance for SiriusXM will be in the Hamptons,” a spokeswoman for the radio company told Newsday, but declined to name an exact location.

Contest winners from around the country will attend the concert, which will air live on SiriusXM’s channel The Spectrum. The band is expected to play songs from throughout its career, including from its new album “A Head Full of Dreams.”

“This feels like the perfect time to play this special show for SiriusXM listeners,” Coldplay said in a statement. “Someone just needs to tell us the secret location and we’ll be there.”

The Hamptons is a good location for the show since singer Chris Martin spends a lot of his downtime there with his family.

“We couldn’t be more excited that Coldplay, one of the most acclaimed bands working today, will step away from its global tour playing stadiums and arenas to present an intimate event for SiriusXM at a special location,” Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s president and chief content officer, said in a statement.

Coldplay recently headlined two nights at MetLife Stadium on its current tour.
