A series of gigs at the stunning Blenheim Palace

Nocturne Live is a series of musical concerts and gigs at the stunning Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. Inviting a selection of world-class acts to its Great Court, Nocturne is all about great music and summer relaxation. 

Legendary disco band Chic & Nile Rodgers will headline the event on Thursday 14 June. Multiple Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, and guitarist Nile Rogers is responsible for a string of worldwide hits including Let’s Dance by David Bowie, Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out and Sister Sledge’s classic hit We Are Family.

His partnership with Chic has become a household name, with the group's groovy funk and dance vibes some of the most distinctive and symbolic music of recent times, and hits such as Le FreakEverybody Dance and Good Times now staples of every record collection.

Arguably the greatest British songwriter of his generation, Noel Gallagher recently became the first artist in UK Chart history to have ten consecutive number one albums.

His solo performances with his High Flying Birds band feature a mix of solo material alongside a selection of iconic Oasis anthems. He will headline on Friday 15 June.

With four albums in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of all Time list, Elvis Costello is a true song-writing legend, rising up from London's pub rock scene in the 1970s. He will headline the series on Saturday 16 June.

Meanwhile, Gary Barlow will headline on Sunday 17 June. Performing hits from both his solo career and Take That, this will be an incredible finale to the 2018 Nocturne series of summer concerts.
