Bestival has just announced that Nile Rodgers, the man behind Daft Punk’s hit Get Lucky, will headline the Sunday night show. The band Chic featuring Nile Rodgers comes back to Robin hill years later – we are sure the desert island disco (this year’s Bestival’s theme) won’t disappoint us!
Rob da bank, Bestival creator, comments: “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 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!”
From Chase & Status, to Disclosure to Avicii, Nile is one of the most wanted music producers at the moment – and having him with the band Chic as the desert island disco finale seems just the icing on the cake.
Bestival will take place at the Isle of Wight, from 4th to 8th September. Tickets are available here – students and young people discounts available.
