EARTH, WIND & FIRE have been announced as the first headliners of the Fiesta x FOLD Festival in Glasgow this summer.

The legendary ten-piece will join Nile Rodgers & CHIC on Saturday 30th June, day one of the musical extravaganza taking place in Kelvingrove Park.  The brand new festival from the team behind The West End Fiesta is being organised in collaboration with the legendary Nile Rodger’s Freak Out Let’s Dance Party and will feature a host of Nile’s friends and collaborators over the two days.

Set to mark the first time the two iconic artists have shared a stage in Scotland, 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. We can’t wait to see them make history in Glasgow this summer.”

With a new venue that is said to hold up to 10,000, tickets are currently on sale here. Set to be one of the most unmissable events of the summer, Fiesta x FOLD takes place on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July. A headliner for the Sunday will be announced in the near future.
