The iconic funk band will take to the stage at the Ormeau Park on Friday, June 15.

He has transcended all styles of music across every generation with a body of work that’s garnered him inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (2017) and the Songwriters Hall of Fame (2016).

His work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna have sold over 300 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide while his collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith have seen him leave his mark on contemporary music.
