Article 17th May 2021

By The Jockey Club Live

The Jockey Club Live are delighted to reveal that Jess Glynne will be returning to Newmarket Nights on Friday 6th August. With the addition of Jess to the bill, the line-up for live open-air concerts after racing at Newmarket Racecourses this summer is now complete.

Sophie Able, General Manager, Newmarket said:

“We have been working tirelessly behind-the-scenes since the announcement of the Government’s roadmap to secure a fantastic summer of live music. We can’t wait to welcome music fans back to Newmarket for incredible racing, plus the joy that live music brings - something we’ve all missed over the past year. With the addition of Jess Glynne, our season features beloved household names to chart-topping talent, making sure there is an evening for all and continuing Newmarket Night’s legacy as an unmissable event in the summer calendar.”

 When you look at the statistics that have marked Jess Glynne’s sky-rocketing career so far, there is probably a look of mild disbelief on your face…. Her debut album I Cry When I Laugh is one of the defining British pop records of its era. It debuted at number one, spawning 12 million worldwide singles sales, 39 weeks on the UK top 10, 2.5 billion Spotify streams, a sold out UK arena tour, Brit, MTV: EMA, Ivor Novello, MOBO, Q and Glamour award nominations. She is the only British female ever to achieve seven #1 UK singles, and is fast-becoming the ultimate modern British popstar – effortlessly brokering the hinterlands between pop, soul, R&B and house music.

Jess Glynne said:

“I had a wicked time headlining Newmarket Nights in 2017, looking forward to coming back. August will be all the more special after the last year we have all had!”
