The Wombats are set to play a headlining show at Newmarket Racecourse this summer.

The band will top the bill on August 5 as part of the ‘Live After Evening Racing’ series, with tickets on sale at 10am on February 18.

The Liverpool natives, who released their UK chart-topping Fix Yourself, Not the World album in January, will hit the road this spring for the UK leg of their All The Hits! Tour, which includes arena shows in Leeds, Cardiff and London, where they’ll headline The O2.

The Wombats said: “We’ve heard some amazing things about the Newmarket Nights crowd so can’t wait to be headlining for the first time this August. We love performing open-air shows, especially in new places, and are so excited to bring our tour to you all this Summer!”

The news comes just as the band have also surpassed over 1.5 billion streams worldwide. Over 15 years into their career, they are pulling in bigger audiences than ever before.

2021 saw a season of incredible live shows at The Jockey Club racecourses, ranging from a sold-out show for Tom Jones to an afternoon of joyful singalongs with McFly at Newmarket Racecourses. Despite the challenges of staging a season in 2021, the events marked the return to live music for thousands of fans. The Jockey Club Live events continue to be renowned for combining an electric evening at the races with a spectacular evening concert in an informal and relaxed open-air setting.

Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said: “The Wombats are a constant staple at some of the biggest and best festivals in the world so are the perfect band to headline The July Course in August. The line-up for Newmarket Nights is bigger and better than ever before and will provide something for everyone this summer.”
