Bestival 2014 Sunday headliner revealed
THE King of Funk returns!
Super producer Nile Rodgers is bringing the ultimate cosmic party band Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers back to this year’s Desert Island Disco themed Bestival, this time as Sunday night headliners.
The undisputed heavyweight King of Disco, Nile Rodgers is the world’s most in-demand producer.
He is the man behind the biggest career hits from David Bowie, Diana Ross, Duran Duran and Madonna and penned the hit of last summer, Daft Punk’s Get Lucky.
Nile told Your Entertainment: “I’m so excited to be back at Bestival, this time in the prestigious Sunday night headliner slot following legends Stevie Wonder and Elton John.
“Expect an extra special Desert Island Disco set from myself and Chic! Looking forward to seeing you all in September.”
Promoter Rob da Bank added: “Ever since I first booked Chic and Nile for Bestival a few years back they have hands down been the best live band we've ever had at Bestival and Camp Bestival.
“And once people start realising how many hits Nile has written and produced for artists ranging from Madonna and David Bowie through to Daft Punk's Get Lucky, you realise that this is just one huge disco jukebox that is gonna keep firing out the hits all night! I’m over the moon that Nile and the crew are going to wrap up our Desert Island Disco Finale with a damn funky, glittery bang. Everybody Dance!”
Outkast and Busta Rhymes have already been named as headliners for Bestival 2014.
Tickets for the festival, at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight from September 4 to 7, are on sale now. Click here>>
