Brighton Racecourse Promise A Truly Memorable Live Music Experience This September

Brighton's unique, historic racecourse is the venue for an on-going series of live music events with spectacular views across the south coast, with a line-up boasting Human League, Marc Almond, Hacienda Classical with Groove Armada and Stereo MCs.

Brighton Racecourse is an iconic venue and remains one of the south coast's most popular horse racing destinations. 

However, its hilltop location offering breath-taking views and the freshest sea air make it a special location for live music. 

Brighton Racecourse Marketing Manager, Grainne Bartholomew says: "This year we are only doing a small number of live music events so we are aiming to put on some epic shows and make these truly memorable."

Always performing live, with no backing tapes, the Human League are known for million-selling hits such as Don't you Want Me and Human, as well as classics including(Keep Feeling) Fascination and Mirror Man. 


Supporting Human League, on 8th September, is Marc Almond, an artist who, as part of Soft Cell, will always be remembered for tracks such as Tainted Love and Say Hello, Wave Goodbye. 

Hacienda Classical is the perfect closing act for Brighton Racecourse Live. This unique spectacle brings the Manchester Camerata, a hugely talented orchestra, together with DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, two legends from the days of the Hacienda nightclub in Manchester.
 
Together with special guests, this combination will bring to life new orchestral versions of the classic house tracks that made the Hacienda so instrumental in dance music culture.
 
One of the planet's best loved dance acts, Groove Armada step up in support. Since their breakthrough hit At The River Andy Cato and Tom Findlay have added million–selling albums, Grammy and Brit nominations and a pioneering live show to their reputation. 

Also a highlight on the lineup is the Brit Award winning Stereo MCs. Walking a line between the hip hop and acid house scenes, Stereo MCs enjoyed massive international success in the "90"s with their Connected album. 

Brighton Racecourse Live kicks with a weekend of unmissable live music on 8th and 9th of September 2017. To purchase one of the 500 tickets at the special offer launch price of £37.50 head straight over to www.brightonracecourselive.com.
