Nile Rodgers and CHIC have been announced as the final headliner for Liverpool International Music Festival - LIMF - which takes place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July 2019 at Sefton Park, Liverpool.
Nile Rodgers and CHIC will perform on the Saturday. They join the already confirmed acts who include De La Soul, SIGMA and Disco Classical with special guest Sister Sledge featuring Kathy Sledge, who close the festival on the Sunday night.
Nile Rodgers said "Liverpool has been the site of some of my greatest moments as an artist from our triumphant concerts there, where we are made to feel like we are from Anfield or the Old Swan to being honoured by Sir Paul McCartney at LIPA. We cannot wait to be back to Merseyside not once, but twice this summer!"
