Reviews of Fiesta x Fold
The Fiesta x FOLD - the brand new festival brought to you by the team behind The West End Fiesta in collaboration with the legendary Nile Rodger’s Freak Out Let’s Dance Party - will take place in Glasgow’s iconic Kelvingrove Park next year.
The event which will take place on the 30th June and 1st July 2018 will feature the incredible Nile Rodgers & CHIC plus a host of Nile’s friends and collaborators for some truly unforgettable musical performances. Nile and CHIC have had a phenomenal year in 2017 playing sell out shows across the globe as well as being behind the fantastic BBC4 series ‘How to Make it in the Music Business’ and they cannot wait to come back to Scotland.
Nile Rodgers said: ‘We are so excited to be coming back to Glasgow and to performing alongside some of my great friends and collaborators in this beautiful park. We had such an amazing time performing in the bandstand last year, the atmosphere was just off the scale, and 2018 is going to be so much bigger and better.’
The Fiesta x FOLD will be a much bigger affair than The West End Fiesta with the new venue able to hold up to 10,000 and in addition to the main stage, there will be an incredible experiential food offering that will include a unique long table banquet dining experience with a diverse line-up of celebrated local and international innovative chefs.
Ricky Scoular and Brian Traynor, Promoters of The Fiesta x FOLD said: We are really thrilled to be bringing the event to Kelvingrove Park which is such an iconic and beautiful location and one which will be the perfect backdrop to our event which can be enjoyed by the whole family’.
Last Entry: 6.00pm
