Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, guitarist Nile Rodgers and his multi-platinum selling band CHIC are confirmed to headline Brighton Pride’s LoveBN1Fest on Sunday 5th August in Preston Park.
LoveBN1Fest is the brand new Pride Sunday Festival on Preston Park helping raise extra funds for the Pride Social Impact Fund while bringing all our communities together.

This unique set will see the band perform some of the songs from the greatest collaborations of Nile’s four-decade career including David Bowie, Madonna and Diana Ross.
His productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna have sold over 300 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide while his innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.
The Brighton Pride LoveBN1Fest is all set to reverberate to the hit records produced by Nile Rodgers such as Pharrell Williams’ ‘Get Lucky,’ Diana Ross’s ‘I’m Coming Out,’ David Bowie’s ‘Lets dance’ and a raft of CHIC hits including ‘Good Times’ and ‘Le Freak’.
Featuring main stage artists, performance and dance tents, family tent, circus skills, cabaret and theatre, spoken word, community stalls and food village, accessibly tent and WellBeing area, LoveBN1Fest has something for everyone and, with children under 11 going free, it’s the perfect Sunday In The Park for Pride.
Paul Kemp, Director of Pride said, “Nile Rodgers & Chic were one of the highlights of Glastonbury 2017 and have an amazing catalogue of hits. A Grammy Award winning composer, producer and arranger, Nile has worked with the absolute biggest names in music, from Diana Ross, David Bowie and Madonna to Daft Punk, Avicii and Sam Smith. Sunday’s LoveBN1Fest will be a brilliant day out and a great celebration of Brighton & Hove as well as helping raise funds for the Pride Social Impact Fund so we’re thrilled to be able to bring such a major artist to Brighton & Hove for the Pride weekend”
