X Factor winners Little Mix will headline The Jockey Club and Newmarket Racecourses’ Summer Saturday Live on August 27.
The chart-toppers, playing there on August 27, said: “We can’t wait to come to see all of our fans. We love open air shows and promise an amazing day out, together we will give summer the perfect send off before school starts.”
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have sold more than 7million records, with two number one singles and two platinum albums under their belt since winning the 2011 series of the ITV talent show.
Last year’s season saw Newmarket Nights win the Group Leisure award for best event for groups in 2014-15. The Adnams July Course welcomed acts including Kylie and Spandau Ballet to Tom Jones and Kaiser Chiefs; collectively playing to more than 100,000 fans.
Tears for Fears have already been announced for this season with more announcements coming soon.

Summer Saturday Live, our final event of the summer on the Adnams July Course, always has a fantastic family atmosphere associated with it and Little Mix will no doubt provide an amazing show to round off another brilliant year of music here at Newmarket.”
