Longstanding Indie icons, James, will be helping us to celebrate the long Jubilee weekend as they take to the stage after racing.

What better way to mark this Great British celebration than coming to enjoy the Sport of Kings followed by a chart-topping live music act on the big stage?

Celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, the Mancunian heroes will be bringing the enduring sounds of their back catalogue, plus highlights from their critically-acclaimed new album ‘All The Colours of You’ to our prestigious racecourse.

Come and soak up the atmosphere of the action on the track and visit our array of bars and eateries – something to suit everyone’s taste and budget.

Have a flutter as you follow the runners and riders and soak up the ambience as sport and music combine to create a safe bet for a great day out offering more than seven hours of entertainment. Since their breakthrough single in 1991, ‘Sit Down’, James have released 16 studio albums (10 of them hitting the UK Top 10), sold over 25 million albums worldwide, scored four UK Top 10 hits (including ‘Come Home’, ‘She’s a Star’ and ‘Laid’) and performed countless headline shows and festivals across the globe.

Releasing their most recent album last year, ‘All The Colours of You’ arrived as one of the most fresh and festival-ready of their 40-year career. Recorded in part before the Covid pandemic struck, the album was produced by the Grammy award-winning Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, Taylor Swift, Snow Patrol, The Killers).

Releasing their most recent album in 2021, ‘All The Colours Of You’, the record arrived as one of the most fresh and festival-ready of their 40-year career. Recorded in part before the Covid pandemic struck, the album was produced by the Grammy award-winning Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, Taylor Swift, Snow Patrol, The Killers). On production duties with James for the first time, Lee bought a fresh approach to their sound, working remotely from his studio liaising with Tim (his Topanga Canyon neighbour) liaising with Jim in a daisy chain, reimagining their demos, and capturing the band in all their virtual glory.

The result is the sound of one of Britain’s best bands, deconstructed and reassembled by one of the world’s most renowned producers. A hit with fans and press alike, the album was praised by MOJO as “a late-period peak” and UNCUT as “an album that thrums with a sense of urgency both timely and slightly remarkable”.
