Earth, Wind & Fire Announced as Saturday Headliner
Fiesta x FOLD set to be a Boogie Wonderland as…EARTH, WIND & FIRE announced as first headliner!
Fiesta x FOLD festival is thrilled to announce that the legendary 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 take the form of 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 incredible 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 toured the States together with their unforgettable 2054 tour, which reviewers called ‘one for the history books’. We can’t wait to see them make history in Glasgow this summer.
A wide range of tickets for the event are on sale now, including VIP and Family tickets. The event has also announced a ‘pay up scheme’ allowing music fans the opportunity to split the cost of their tickets over two instalments.
Fiesta x FOLD takes place in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park on 30th June and 1st July 2018.
