Bastille named for Newmarket Nights 2023

BRIT award-winning, multi-platinum selling, billion-streamed BASTILLE will be making their Newmarket Nights debut on Friday 30th June 2023.  
The very special show will be part of a series celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the band’s chart-conquering, twice No.1 debut album, ‘Bad Blood’, giving fans the opportunity to hear the album played live in its entirety alongside other fan favourites.
Hailed as a trailblazing album, ‘Bad Blood’ featured the international hit, ‘Pompeii’  and became the biggest-selling digital album of 2013. Bastille became that year’s biggest-selling global breakthrough act, with over 1 billion Spotify streams earning them the British Breakthrough Act award at the 2014 Brits, along with two Grammy nominations. Since then, ‘Bad Blood’ has gone on to achieve triple platinum status with over 1 million copies sold in the UK alone. 
Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said
“Having Bastille as our first announced artist of 2023 is such a delight – they’ve been on our ‘wish list’ for quite some time and can’t wait to see the mammoth performance they’ll bring to the July course on 30th June 2023.’ 
Newmarket Nights returned in full force in 2022, with showstopping headline performances from household names including The Script, Anne-Marie and Paloma Faith.
