Jess Glynne announced for Newmarket Racecourses concert
Chart-topping singer Jess Glynne has been added to the list of acts playing Newmarket Racecourses this summer.
The Brit Awards nominee will play Newmarket Nights at the Suffolk racecourse on August 12.
Jess Glynne will also be donating a portion of her Newmarket fee to an equine charity, of which The Jockey Club Live will match.
She 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.”
One of the UK’s hottest chart stars, Jess Glynne first came into the public consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s Grammy Award-winning number one hit Rather Be.
The pop sensation 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.
Jess will be performing as the prestigious Brit Awards later this month and has been nominated for British Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single for Hold My Hand.
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.”
