Legendary dance outfit Chic will close this year’s disco themed Bestival accompanied by the incredible Nile Rodgers. Having recently picked up three Grammy awards and a Brit for his work with Daft Punk, the band return to the UK to close what is sure to be a brilliant weekend.

Rob Da Bank commented “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!”.

Having co-written a barrage of hits from the past fifty years for the likes of Duran Duran and Madonna, Nile Rodgers is now spending time producing with Pharrell, Disclosure and Avicii to name a few. The indisputed king of disco had this to say ahead of his headlining performance “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”.

Following a precedent set by Fatboy Slim aboard HMS Bestival last year, Chic will be performing a spectacular and specially themed show, a Desert Island Disco Finale, exclusive to Bestival. Tickets are available now at www.ticketline.co.uk/bestival-tickets. The popular payment plan also returns this year, offering a 25 week plan which means that an adult ticket can now be bought at a payment of £7.80 per week over 25 weekly payments.

With Chic headlining, we are assured good times!
