Newmarket Racecourses will stage a ‘Big Pop Party’ with 5ive, Blue and Liberty X as one of this year’s Adnams Newmarket Nights on Friday 28 June.

The three bands join Madness, Kaiser Chiefs, Keane, Labrinth and Simple Minds among the fantastic acts playing on Friday nights at the racecourse this summer.

5ive, the hugely successful British boy band of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, came together again for ITV’s ‘The Big Reunion’.

Blue, who have three number one albums to their credit, first formed in 2000 and have been performing again since 2009. They have been in concert with artists such as Sir Elton John and Stevie Wonder.

Liberty X, famed for many top ten singles especially the BRIT award-winning number one ‘Just A Little’, are on a crest of a wave again after reforming as well for the hit ITV series that began airing in January.

“It is going to be a superb evening of horse racing and music, and I’m sure many thousands of music fans will be with us on Friday 28 June.”
