We are excited to have Madness returning to the Newbury Racecourse Party in the Paddock stage on Saturday 17 August 2019. Following the racing, the ska legends will play an array of their famous hits.

Formed in London in 1976, the band currently consists of six of the seven original members and will take to the stage after racing to perform some of their classics. The band has had 15 singles reach the UK top ten, including hits such as “Our House”, “Baggy Trousers” and “It Must Be Love”.

Approximate concert timings: 6.00pm -7.30pm – these are subject to change.
