Fixture Details | Summer Music Saturday


A date where the strands of quality racing and high class entertainment are at the fore, with her acclaimed Number 1 album ‘The Architect’ riding high in the charts and a BRIT nomination for Best British Female, PALOMA FAITH, has been announced as the headline act for Summer Music Saturday.

There is a special thrill in cheering home your winning selection surrounded by thousands of people.

Admission to Stands Side has reached capacity- there are no more tickets available to purchase for the County Stand or Grandstand and Paddock on the day or in advance 

The Clocktower Enclosure (called the Picnic Enclosure by some) in the middle of the racecourse is only open to sales once gates open at 11.15am, so there will still be an opportunity, subject to availability, to be part of the racing and music by using this area; even after the Stands Side admissions are all sold.

Another chance to combine racing and music at York?  Our Music Showcase Weekend has become popular with racing and music fans alike, promising to be a fun filled 24 hours of top class racing and live music on Friday (eve) 27 – Saturday 28 July.
