The news comes after weeks of Belsonic’s previous announcement that Example, Biffy Clyro, Queens of the Stone Age, Kodaline and Imagine Dragons are all set to headline a night each at Custom House Square in Belfast this August. CHIC will headline 19th August 2014.
The disco godfathers, fronted by songwriting genius Nile Rodgers, have experienced phenomenal success over the last 18 months. Their collaboration with Daft Punk (“Get Lucky”) joins a veritable “greatest hits” in their live repertoire, which includes “Good Times”, “Everybody Dance”, “We Are Family”, “Lets Dance”, “Like A Virgin” and many others.
Since their incredible debut Belfast performance in 2012, Chic & Nile Rodgers have performed a remarkable string of 4 sellout concerts across the province, culminating in 4,000 capacity event The Venue, part of Derry’s 2013 City Of Culture, which sold out in less than 2 hours.
Also announced are support acts such as Brody Dalle and The Minutes who will support Queens of the Stone Age, Twin Atlantic set up to warm up the Biffy Clyro crowd and Daniel James to open up for Kodaline.
