Nile Rodgers and his legendary funk band, Chic, will headline a massive open air concert at Malahide Castle this summer.

Having earned his stripes as a touring musician playing with countless musicians in the 1970s, Rodgers formed Chic with bassist Bernard Edwards in 1977. The band scored a number of hits with timeless funk-pop tracks like Le Freak, I Want Your Love, Everybody Dance, and Good Times.

The band also went on to collaborate with numerous other artists as writers, producers, and performers, contributing to hits like Sister Sledge’s We are Family and He’s The Greatest Dancer, Bowie’s Let’s Dance, Madonna’s Like A Virgin, Duran Duran’s Notorious and countless others.

In recent years, since Edwards’ passing and his own recovery from cancer, Rodgers has toured relentlessly with Chic. They have proved routinely popular at festivals up and down Ireland, and it’s no surprise to see them back again for more Good Times.

Support on the night comes from Craig David and Soul II Soul.
