In the summer of 2019 Nile Rodgers descended on Southbank Centre as curator of the 26th Meltdown festival and in anticipation of what proved to be an incredible nine days, we put together this special playlist. Be it as guitarist, song-writer, composer or producer, every track on this packed mixtape features Rodgers' remarkable talents.
Whether you’re an all out CHIC geek, or a complete Rodgers novice, you’ll doubtless recognise some of the huge hits on this list – from Disco to Daft Punk, via Diana Ross, David Bowie, Duran Duran, and more. What are you waiting for? Turn the volume up and enjoy.

Sadly, for everyone’s safety, our venues are currently closed. But you can still get your Southbank Centre fix online. We will continue to share inspiring and thought-provoking arts stories through our website and social channels.
As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. We all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
