EARTH, WIND & FIRE JOIN FEST LINE-UP.
EARTH, Wind & Fire are to join Nile Rodgers and Chic at new Glasgow festival Fiesta x FOLD.
Original members Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Ralph Johnston will front the 10-piece band and headline the first day of the event in Kelvingrove Park on Saturday, June 30.
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."
It'll be the first time Earth, Wind & Fire have appeared on the same Scots stage as Rodgers. He will perform on both Saturday and Sunday before the headline act.
The Sunday line-up is still to be announced. A wide range of tickets for the event are on sale now, including VIP and family tickets. It has a "pay up scheme" so music fans can split the cost of tickets over two instalments.
Last year, Earth, Wind & Fire, Rodgers and Chic took their Studio 54 Tour to iconic venues including New York's Madison Square Garden.
Reviewers described the tour as "one for the history books".
