He is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, and the recipient of six Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement/Special Merit Award.

Nile Rodgers & Chic one one of four acts who perform at Ludlow Castle on consecutive nights, with the concerts being labelled 'within these walls'.

Rag 'n' Bone Man kicks things off on Thursday, July 20 before indie rock band Kaiser Chief entertains the crowds the following night. Pop rock act Bastille will also be performing on Sunday, July 23.
