Make sure you’re ‘Right Here’ on 12th August as The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are delighted to welcome Jess Glynne, one of the UK’s hottest chart stars, to the Newmarket Nights stage.
First coming into the public consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s Grammy Award winning and #1 hit Rather Be, pop sensation Jess Glynne has since become one of the biggest UK breakthrough acts of recent years. Her number one charting debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, has now turned double platinum in the UK, making it the highest selling debut album of the past year. She also became the second British female solo artist after Cheryl to have five number one singles in the UK. With no signs of slowing down, 2016 is set to be a massive year for Jess – later this month she’ll be performing as the prestigious Brit Awards and has been nominated for British Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single for Hold My Hand.
Jess Glynne will also be donating a portion of her fee to an equine charity, of which The Jockey Club Live will match. Details to follow at a later date.
Jess Glynne said:
‘It’s going to be great fun playing Newmarket Racecourse on 12th August after the races. I love outdoor shows and can’t wait to share some summer evenings with my fans!’
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
‘It will be amazing to welcome Jess Glynne to Newmarket Racecourses for the first time and add yet another star to our list of top quality acts who have performed here. This will just add further to all the celebrations around 350 years of making history in Newmarket and we are looking forward to the 12th August very much.’
Last year’s award winning 2015 season, which saw Newmarket Nights win the Group Leisure award for ‘Best Event For Groups’ in 2014/15, welcomed acts including Kylie, Spandau Ballet, Tom Jones and Kaiser Chiefs to the Adnams July Course, collectively playing to over 100,000 fans. The season launched with a sell out crowd of 22,000 achieved in a record breaking 40 minutes for the showgirl herself, Kylie.
