Since co-founding CHIC in 1976, Rodgers has built an unrivalled catalogue of hit songs. His collaborations with such iconic artists as David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide. In more recent times his work with Daft Punk, Disclosure, Sam Smith and other artists demonstrate Rodgers’ ability to transcend all styles of music, across every generation. His musical prowess truly knows no bounds.
Renowned the world over for their electric outdoor performances at festivals like Glastonbury and Coachella, Nile Rodgers & CHIC are quite simply the ultimate party band. As their timeless hits including ‘Everybody Dance’, ‘Le Freak’, and ‘Good Times’ sound out across Singleton Park alongside the rhythm of Rodgers’ ‘Hitmaker’ guitar, this will go down as one of Swansea’s most memorable summer parties.
Among music legends, Nile Rodgers is truly exceptional. He amplifies his legacy as a multiple GRAMMY-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music. As the co-founder of CHIC and the newly elected Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like ‘Le Freak,’ (the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records!) and sparked the advent of hip-hop with ‘Good Times’. Nile Rodgers transcends all styles of music across every generation with a body of work that’s garnered him inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Most recently, he was appointed as the first ever Chief Creative Advisor for the legendary Abbey Road Studios and was included in ‘festival best’ performances at both Glastonbury and Coachella that resulted in the BBC nominating the band for the BBC Music Awards as ‘Best Live Performance’ and the LA Times stating “Nile Rodgers influence stretches all over Coachella, beaming the sound of a better future”.
Feels Like Summer was launched as a brand new event for the outdoor calendar in Wales in summer 2019 and took place in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. Billed as a summer party, it delivered with music from Bananarama, Bonnie Tyler, a workout with Mr. Motivator and an outdoor roller rink.
Now making an appearance in Swansea for Summer 2021 its time to dust off your dancing shoes and come out for what will be one of the biggest party nights in Swansea this summer.
