Music + Sport, the London based company behind Jockey Club Live, which promotes music events at racecourses around the UK in association with The Jockey Club, has announced a move into presenting music at rugby venues, with a major show this summer at Gloucester Kingsholm Stadium – home of Aviva Premiership side Gloucester Rugby.
This is the first time Music + Sport has expanded its portfolio into rugby and the first time they have worked with a rugby-specific venue such.
The ongoing objective is to promote large-scale music shows at rugby events, with Jess Glynne confirmed to headline the first of these on Saturday, June 18.
Jockey Club Live was established to increase the popularity and commercial success of live music events at the 15 Jockey Club owned racecourses around the UK.
Under the banner of An Evening At The Races, over 300,000 people attended the company’s horseracing plus music events in 2014.
As previously announced, The Jockey Club Live is presenting a full programme of music shows at racecourses throughout summer 2016, including appearances from Jess Glynne, Little Mix, Bryan Adams, The Kaiser Chiefs, Will Young and Busted.
Jess Glynne’s scheduled racecourse appearances at Haydock Park, Sandown, Market Rasen and Newmarket this summer has so far seen over 65,000 tickets snapped up, with two of the four shows now completely sold out and just a few tickets left for the others.
