The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are excited to announce the next headliner for the Newmarket Nights season, with YEARS & YEARS set to grace the July Course stage on Friday 16th August.
Years & Years are one of the UK’s biggest breakthrough acts of recent years, having sold over 2.5 million albums and 15 million singles worldwide. Their debut album ‘Communion’ reached number one in the UK with tracks ‘King’, ‘Shine’, ‘Desire’ and ‘Eyes Shut’ all turning platinum, and propelled the band to be nominated for four BRIT Awards including British Group. Its ambitious follow-up, ‘Palo Santo’, saw the band reach even greater heights, headlining London’s O2 Arena and embarking on a mammoth European tour, with lead single ‘If You’re Over Me’ matching the success of its predecessors by turning platinum at the end of last year.
Starting 2019 on a high, Years & Years were once again nominated for British Group at the BRIT Awards, and clocked up their fifth top ten single, featuring on the Jax Jones track ‘Play’.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
‘Years & Years are one of Britain’s biggest musical success stories of the decade and have produced some of the most recognisable hits of recent years.
