Fiesta x FOLD Festival is absolutely delighted to announce that Scotland’s own Emeli Sandé will be joining Nile Rodgers & CHIC for good times at this year’s festival, co-headlining
day two of the event on Sunday 1st July. Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist Nile Rodgers will produce, perform, and host the Fiesta x FOLD Festival.
Flying in the face of the current male-dominated trend, they have pulled together a powerful female-led line-up for the Sunday and are excited to welcome not only Emeli but Goldfrapp, Laura Mvula, Morcheeba and Ana Matronic to join what is set to be the biggest party of the summer.
Nile Rodgers commented, “I appreciate the fans in Glasgow being patient while we put a great line up together! I’ve always had strong women in my band and 24 hours after International Women’s Day I’m proud to announce that we will be joined by the wonderful
Emeli Sande, Goldfrapp, Laura Mvula, Morcheeba & Ana Matronic all of whom I’m delighted to share a stage with.”
The critically acclaimed and multi-award winning Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé is one of the leading female soul and R&B vocalists in the world. Emeli is a multi-platinum recording artist and has sold out arenas globally.
She redefined modern urban music with her stunning debut album ‘Our Version Of Events’ and has continued to build on its success. It’s a massive coup securing the Scot for this homeland show.
UK electropop icons Goldfrapp are the perfect act to send fans wild at Glasgow’s iconic Kelvingrove Park with their unique and captivating blend of electronic music and their legendary live show – expect a spectacle.
The astounding Laura Mvula is not a musician who expects adulation which makes her emotional, atmospheric and soaring sets all the more stunning to behold.
Blissed-out 90s favourites Morcheeba blend elements of trip-hop, rock and electronica and just about anything else you can think of. Led by vocalist Skye Edwards, they join the bill on Sunday for what is sure to be a memorable live set.
And completing the powerful female-led line up is Scissor Sister Ana Matronic, who is set to bring her own brand of electro-disco to Glasgow for the first time.
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.
