Nile Rodgers Set To Receive The IMS Legends Award


Multi-Grammy award winning artist, Nile Rodgers, will be honored with the International Music Summit’s Legends Award next month, Billboard reports.

The famed guitarist will receive the award at the IMS Legends Dinner, set to take place on May 21 at the Sessions restaurant in Ibiza’s Hard Rock Hotel.

“Our love affair with Nile goes on and we are delighted he will be accepting our IMS Legends Award at the now annual industry dinner,” IMS partner, Ben Turner said of the Chic co-founder. “This event is becoming a major event on the electronic calendar and in the year that Nile took the top Grammy Awards with Daft Punk, this just feels like an extension of the incredible momentum year he and electronic music is having.”

Rodgers is currently gearing up for the release of Chic’s new album, which will feature collaborations from Avicii to David Guetta.
