Bestival: Chic style back in fashion

Nile Rodgers and Chic will return to the Isle of Wight in September to headline Bestival.

SONGWRITING superstar Nile Rodgers and the band Chic will return to Bestival this year, to headline Sunday night.

Bestival curator Rob da Bank 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.

"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."

Chic will perform an exclusive Desert Island Disco Finale, featuring some of their greatest hits, from Le Freak (Aw Freak Out) and Good Times, to tracks penned by Nile including Let’s Dance and Like A Virgin.

Nile said: "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."

Other headliners confirmed for Bestival 2014 include OutKast, Foals and Beck.
