Fiesta x FOLD Festival is excited to announce that De La Soul and Roy Ayers will be joining Nile Rodgers & CHIC at this year’s festival, performing on day one of the event on Saturday 30th June. Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist Nile Rodgers will produce, perform, and host the Fiesta x FOLD Festival.
With 30 years of critical acclaim and a Grammy Award, American trip-hop legends De La Soul need little introduction. Since their inception in 1987, they were at the forefront of a new frontier of hip-hop, with music laden with jazz oddities, creative wordplay, and positivity. Their live shows are a force to be reckoned with, festival-goers are in for something special.
The Godfather of neo-soul and award-winning artist Roy Ayers is a living legend. His best-loved hits include We Live in Brooklyn Baby and Everybody Loves The Sunshine. A self-confessed man of the road with a renowned live show, he has to his name no fewer than 91 albums. He also has the distinction of having more hits sampled by rappers than any other artist! With cool-vibe breaks and punchy funk basslines, his performance will get the party started and certainly be one to remember.
Fiesta x FOLD Festival have pulled together an incredible line-up with an international cast of artists for what is set to be the biggest party of the summer! Joining Nile Rodgers & CHIC as co-headliners on the Saturday are the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire and The Pointer Sisters. With De La Soul, Roy Ayers and Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club also playing.
