Nile Rogers has spoken out about his plans for his upcoming headlining slot at Bestival this summer - promising fans 'the biggest disco party', and the biggest disco ball, ever.
Speaking to Gigwise on the red carpet at today's Ivor Novello Awards, the 'Get Lucky' guitarist and Chic disco hero revealed how this year's set at Bestival would be different from their performance last year.
"What we're doing now is because we're headlining, we get to play longer, " he said. "So we're going to do an extended set and I actually just made a challenge to the head of Bestival - I said that I would like to create the world's largest disco party of all time. So he says 'how do we do that?'
Rodgers contined: "So then I was like 'I want you to create the world's largest disco ball. He says 'do you know how big that is?' I say 'I don't know - I'm just making it up'. He said it would have to be 10 metres in diametre, so I said 'great - the challenge is on."
He added: "It's going to be an incredible party, then the setlist, I don't know what we're going to be adding but it's going to be great."
And seeing as we were at the Ivor Novellos, we asked the Chic legend who his favourite modern songwriters were.
"Oh my God - it would be like this extremely long list," he replied. "Janelle Monae who I think is amazing, Disclosure who I just worked with - with Sam Smith. We had a blast. Avicii is incredible, some of the people that I've always loved and still love - Prince who I think is a genius. I had to do lists because I always leave people out."
Bestival takes place at Robin Hill County Park on the Isle Of Wight from 4 - 7 September, 2014. For more information visit Gigwise tickets.
