Earth, Wind & Fire will be joining Nile Rodgers & CHIC for good times at this year’s festival, headlining day one of the event on Saturday 30th June. Earth, Wind & Fire will appear as a ten-piece band in their festival appearance, fronted by original members Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Ralph Johnston.
Formed in 1969, the Chicago born band have sold over 100 million albums during their illustrious music career. They were recipients of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, have a star dedicated to them on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 2000 were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Their well-known hits include September, Boogie Wonderland, Let’s Groove, Shining Star and After the Love Has Gone.
Festival promoters Brian Traynor and Ricky Scoular said: ‘This is an unbelievable coup for the festival. They are a phenomenal live act with an unbelievable back catalogue and we know that they will be a massive hit with the Fiesta x FOLD crowd’.
Last year Earth, Wind & Fire and Nile Rodgers & CHIC took their Studio 54 Tour to venues such as Madison Square Gardens in the States. Reviewers called the tour ‘one for the history books’.
This is the first time the multi-platinum artists have appeared on the same Scottish stage as Nile Rodgers and CHIC.
