More news, no ads


Following last year's extremely well-received appearance, the iconic producer, songwriter, musician, composer, arranger and guitarist will be headlining the Summer Saturday Live on Saturday, June 8 at the July course.

Nile Rodgers is a multiple Grammy Award-winner and the co-founder of Chic. He was behind chart-topping classics like Le Freak and Good Times with the band, while also working his magic with the likes of David Bowie (Lets Dance, among others), Diana Ross (Upside Down, I’m Coming Out, etc.) and Madonna (Material Girl, Like A Virgin, etc.).

He has sold over 300 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide, and his collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.

Expect to hear some of the best-known pop anthems from the last four decades. With more than 200 production credits to his name, the scope of Nile Rodgers' peerless influence is undeniable.
