Rodgers and Chic to close Bestival

Nile Rodgers is set to close the 2014 Bestival with Chic.

The Brit-winning Get Lucky star will perform a "spectacular" Desert Island Disco Finale, featuring a medley of hits including Le Freak, Good Times, Let's Dance and Like A Virgin.

"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," he said.

"Expect an extra-special Desert Island Disco set from myself and Chic! Looking forward to seeing you all in September," he added.

The festival's organiser, Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank, added: "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.

He continued: "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 that 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!"

OutKast, Busta Rhymes, Foals, Beck, Disclosure, Major Lazer and London Grammar are to play at the four-day event, which will take place at Robin Hill, on the Isle of Wight, and runs from September 4 to 7.
