The Jockey Club Live & Newmarket Racecourses are proud to announce that pop sensation LITTLE MIX will be headlining this year’s edition of Summer Saturday Live on 27th August 2016.
Since winning the 2011 series of The X Factor, Little Mix have sold over 7 million records, had two UK No.1 singles and two platinum albums ‘DNA’ and ‘Salute’. With over half a billion YouTube and Vevo views worldwide, they’ve also successfully become one of Britain’s greatest exports with massive tours in the US, Australia and Japan – breaking the Spice Girls’ long-held record of highest debut US chart position for a UK girl group in the process. Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of British pop’s brightest acts with signature hits including ‘Move’, ‘Wings’, ‘DNA’ – and their insanely effervescent single ‘Black Magic’ which spent 3 weeks at No. 1.
Little Mix said:
“We cant wait to come and see all of our fans at Summer Saturday Live at Newmarket in August! We love open air shows and promise an amazing day out – together we will give summer the perfect send off before school starts.”
A daytime event in the picturesque open-air setting of the July Course, Summer Saturday Live offers a value for money experience unlike any other this summer. Alongside a show-stopping headlining performance by Little Mix, the action kicks off earlier in the day with a six race card – giving fans the chance to witness powerful equine athletes who are stars in their own right, and enjoy the thrilling drama and spectacle of them racing for glory. Whether you fancy a flutter or a dance with friends and family the event is certain to be an odds on favourite for all this August bank holiday weekend.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
“We are very excited to welcome Little Mix back to Newmarket Racecourses in August. Summer Saturday Live, our final event of the summer on the Adnams July Course, always has a fantastic family atmosphere associated with it and Little Mix will no doubt provide an amazing show to round off another brilliant year of music here at Newmarket.”
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 to Spandau Ballet, Tom Jones to 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.
