Isle of Wight Bestival Gets Chic

Following his important intergalactic funk mission showing those Daft Punk Robots exactly how to party, Nile Rodgers, the fabled dance floor-filling hero returns to earthly realms. Picking up three Grammys and a BRIT on his way, he wipes the space dust from his trademark white suit, picks up his legendary six-string hit-maker, and descends majestically to the Isle of Wight. The call goes out from the Bestival crew, the King of Funk has arrived, Nile Rodgers is here and the Desert Island Disco is GO!

Rob da Bank says: "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!"
