CHIC feat. NILE RODGERS are confirmed to perform on The Main Stage on Sunday 15th July.
Probably the most influential band of the Disco era, Chic are responsible for such classics as “Le Freak”, “Good Times” (sampled by hiphop pioneers The Sugar Hill Gang for their incredible single “Rappers Delight”), “Everybody Dance,” and “I Want Your Love.” Honoured at the dance music hall of fame ceremony as Artist Inductees, Record Inductees and Producer Inductees, Chic have been cited as a major influence to massive artists as diverse as Queen, The Smiths, Blondie and Duran Duran.
Nile Rodgers is very highly regarded for his producing talent and was honoured in 1996 as Top Producer in The World by BillBoard magazine. On top of his work with Chic, he has produced many very popular albums, including Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family”, Diana Ross’s “Diana”, Duran Duran’s “Notorious” and Debbie Harry’s debut solo album “KooKoo”, while being cited as co-producer on David Bowies “Let’s Dance” and Madonna’s “Like A Virgin”.
