Bestival 2014 Reveal Sunday Night Headliners - Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers Desert Island Disco Finale

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!"

We're chomping at the bit to get on our Desert Island dancefloor as super producer and the world's coolest man, Nile Rodgers is bringing the ultimate cosmic party band, Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers back to Robin Hill, this time as glorious Sunday night headliners!

Speaking about his headline set Nile Rodgers 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. Expect an extra special Desert Island Disco set from myself and Chic! Looking forward to seeing you all in September"

The undisputed heavyweight King of Disco and hailed "a legend" by none other than Pharrell following their crowd-slaying collaboration at the BRITs, Mr Nile Rodgers is the world's most in-demand producer right now, racking up studio time with the likes of Chase & Status, Felix da Housecat, Disclosure, David Guetta, Tensnake, and Avicii. Additionally, Nile is also the man behind the biggest career hits from David Bowie, Dianna Ross, Duran Duran, and Madonna, to name but a few. In recent years at Bestival, we've seen Nile and his Chic organisation re-emerge as a globally respected and truly mighty musical force and can't wait to see them bringing the house down like only they can, headlining Sunday evening.

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. With an awe-inspiring litany of pop music's greatest hits from "Le Freak (Aw Freak Out)" and "Good Times" to "Let's Dance" and "Like A Virgin", it will be a jaw-dropping, eye-popping, firework-fuelled disco inferno to end times. Sunday night at Bestival will be an epic, booty shaking twerkathon of disco bliss and the stuff of legends, and we know you don't want to miss that!
