Summer Of Music At Doncaster

Music Live

25 January 2019

With a headline artist every month between May-August, 2019 is shaping up to be the Summer of music for Doncaster Racecourse.

Ladies first; Jess Glynne will perform to thousands of racegoers live after racing on Saturday 18th May at what will be the first stop in her Summer 2019 Outdoor Tour. 
With 2 UK number 1 albums including 2018 hit ‘Always In Between’, and hit singles ‘I’ll be There’ and ‘Thursday’ this is expected to be a sell out show.

June’s headline act is still under wraps. However; the racecourse will transform into the House of Fun in July, for the much-anticipated return of racecourse favorites and ska Legends Madness, performing live after racing on Saturday 20th July. With 15 top UK singles including 'One Step Beyond', 'It Must Be Love' and the number 1 hit 'House of Fun', it’s no surprise the band have reached the UK Top 20 Charts twenty-two times.

Concluding the fantastic line up; James one of British Indie Rocks most celebrated and enduring bands, will perform live after racing on Saturday 17 August.
The Mancunian Legends are regular performers to sell-out crowds, having produced 15 studio albums dating back to the 1980s and most recently the 2018 hit ‘Living in Extraordinary Times’.

Russell Smith; Executive Director at Doncaster Racecourse said:
“We are thrilled to welcome some superb live music acts to Doncaster Racecourse this summer, Jess Glynne (18 May), Madness (20 July), and the recent announcement of British Indie Rock Band James on the 17 August gives us lots to be excited about. The calibre of artists we are attracting to Doncaster, is testament to the fantastic music acts that have entertained crowds in previous years, all of which have helped to put Doncaster on the map."

"2019 is going to be an incredible year at Doncaster Racecourse, not only do we have some fantastic music acts performing live after racing, plus one more still to come, we will also be launching a range of new themed race days, and some fantastic family fun days, there’s something to look forward to for everyone.”
