Nile Rodgers is to host an exclusive BRIT Awards Viewing Party at London’s The Ned on February 20.
Limited to 400 people, the party, which is expected to become an annual event, will kick off at 6.30pm with a drinks reception hosted by the disco legend, followed by food and a viewing of the BRITs TV show from 8pm to 10pm. It will culminate with a special performance by Nile Rodgers & Chic, who are nominated for Best International Group, and special guests.
The cost of the party is being taken care of by Rodgers and his friends and 100% of proceeds will be split to directly support the work of The Brit School and We Are Family Foundation.
Rodgers and his manager Merck Mercuriadis, of Hipgnosis Music, said: “This will be an exciting night of celebration with our friends from music, film and entertainment but we really created this event and situated it at The Ned with our friends in the city in mind.
"In the 14 months we worked with our brokers and investors to launch the Hipgnosis Songs Fund Ltd we learned that there is a tremendous passion for music in the square mile and this is our way of being able to give everyone access on music’s biggest night of the year while supporting the important work of The Brit School and We Are Family Foundation.”
