Undeniably infectious, unquestionably rhythmic; if there's one genre of music to get you smiling and dancing in equal measure, it's disco.

Bursting on to the mainstream spotlight after its emergence on the New York City club circuit in the 70s, disco became the world's most identifiable and beloved music, encapsulated by the music of now-legendary artists like Nile Rodgers + CHIC, Earth, Wind and Fire, Gloria Gaynor, The BeeGees, and Grace Jones.

Discothèques of that era acted as the springboard for what we now know as nightclubs and the spirit of disco runs deep within all modern dance music. At countless global music festivals, disco is naturally represented considering it's a sure-fire winner in terms of getting you to your feet.
