Three Friday Nights: Greg James & Annie Mac & Carl Cox Set To Headline Sussex-Based Summer Festival

Goodwood Racecourse's electric Three Friday Nights is back with a line-up of leading names set to take to the stage throughout June 2022 for a tenth-year celebration. 

The series begins on the 3rd June 2022 with award-winning Radio 1 Breakfast Show DJ, Greg James spinning the decks for an evening of party anthems. 

Iconic music producer and former Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac follows on 10th June, before Ibiza King, house and techno veteran, Carl Cox takes to the stage for the ultimate crescendo on the 17th June. 
Known as a maverick for mixing up familiar hard-hitting party tunes with influences spanning all strains of dance music across the decades, Goodwood Racecourse welcomes Greg James for his debut set on The Downs. 
The party continues with high energy and good vibes from Annie Mac, whose career has prompted the rise of Disclosure, Clean Bandit and Prospa to name a few. 

Known universally as the "Queen of Radio", she has an ear for innovative, emerging talent and a ground-breaking fusion of sounds.  

With an eclectic taste, her iconic set will be peppered with her own, up to the minute remixes and classic tracks. 

Back by popular demand is another pioneer and stalwart of the British music scene – Carl Cox. 

In a career spanning five decades and four albums, Cox is perhaps known best for his unprecedented fifteen-year residency at the legendary Space Ibiza. 

He was a key part of Britain's exploding rave scene in the late eighties and early nineties and has been a prolific producer ever since. 
Three Friday Nights at Goodwood is known for being one of the most exciting events to take place on the South Coast, with DJ sets following an evening of horseracing in front of a sell-out crowds. 

After the last race has been run and the sun sets, the parade ring transforms into a laser-lit dancefloor, and the atmosphere is ignited for three unforgettable nights.
Mat Moakes, heycar CEO said: 

"It's a stellar line-up from start to finish and we're thrilled to be partnering with Goodwood Racecourse for the first time." 
Adult tickets start from £40, with Juniors (13-17) starting from £30. All tickets are expected to sell-out and can be purchased at or by calling 01243 755055.
