Disco legends Nile Rodgers and Chic to perform at Glasgow music festival

Multi award-winning musician, composer and producer Nile Rodgers will be performing with his band Chic when the three-day Glasgow music festival returns to its July slot in the calendar The Scotsman reports.

The paper said they are already due to headline the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in the Highlands, which is sold out.

Also added to the TRNSMT bill by organisers DF Concerts are Maximo Park, Sam Fender, Ella Henderson, Self Esteem, Griff, The Lathums and Example.

Nina Nesbitt, Luke La Volpe, Brooke Combe and Callum Beattie will join the Scottish contingent in the line-up.

TRNSMT has already revealed that the 2022 festival will be headlined by Paolo Nutini, The Strokes and Lewis Capaldi, who called off an appearance at this year’s event.

An announcement from the festival on the additions to its line-up said: “Nile Rodgers has produced some of the most iconic songs of all time from David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ and Madonna’s ‘Like a Virgin’ to Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky; and with his band Chic, has topped the Billboard Top 100 with iconic tracks ‘La Freak’, ‘I Want Your Love’ and ‘Everybody Dance’.

“True disco legends, Nile Rodgers and Chic are guaranteed to get the crowd to ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’ with the ultimate party set on Friday night.”
