Nile Rodgers Bestival 2

The theme for Bestival this year is disco so what better way to end the festival than with disco itself, Chic featuring the legendary Nile Rodgers.

This announcement completes the headliners for Bestival as the band join Outkast and Foals who were announced earlier in the year.

It’s been a fantastic week for festival announcements and the various lineups are beginning to take shape. We can’t wait to hear who else will be gracing the stages up and down the country.

Nile Rodgers and Chic are the perfect act to feature at Bestival where the theme this year is Desert Island Disco and closing the festival? Even better!

Organiser Rob da Bank commented on the news and said: “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.

“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!”

Rodgers also commented on the headline set and told fans to “Expect an extra special Desert Island Disco set” from himself and Chic.

Other acts confirmed for the shows include Busta Rhymes, Disclosure, Clean Bandit, Sam Smith, London Grammar and many many more!
