R&B/dance band CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers are inviting London to ‘Freak Out’ and ‘Get Lucky’ at the capital’s biggest après-ski party at Freeze Big Air 2015 this November at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Nile Rodgers is known for being involved in almost every significant popular music moment of the last forty years and has sold over 200 million albums and 50 million singles world-wide. The Freeze gig will be the band’s only 2015 performance.
Rodgers has over 200 production credits to his name, including David Bowie’s Let’s Dance, Madonna’s Like a Virgin, and We Are Family by Sister Sledge. He’s also worked with Duran Duran, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones and Michael Jackson. In recent years he has worked with Daft Punk, Avicii, Disclosure and Sam Smith.
What’s being billed as Britain’s biggest-ever snow sports and music event takes place on Saturday 14th November in London at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. As well as watching the world’s best snowboarders and skiers battling it out on the biggest real snow jump ever built in the UK and see CHIC perform their hits visitors will be able to sample mulled wine, spiced cider, raclette and fondue.
The Big Air competition will be a World Cup sanctioned event and with Snowboard Big Air now set to be an official Olympic event, gives the potential for Freeze Big Air to become one of the most important annual Olympic Big Air qualifiers on the calendar in the lead up to the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea. The jump will measure 120m x 41m – that’s 15 metres longer than the Wembley Stadium pitch – and be created out of 360 tonnes of snow.
Tickets for Freeze Big Air are available at £49.50 from www.freezebigair.com
