Dizzee Rascal to Headline BetVictor Hungerford Day



Newbury Racecourse is thrilled to reveal DIZZEE RASCAL as the headliner for BetVictor Hungerford Day, performing live after racing on Saturday 17th August.

Dizzee Rascal is easily the most acclaimed and influential artist associated with London’s grime scene, and one of the most successful British rappers of all time. His widely praised 2003 debut, Boy in da Corner, released when the innovative MC and producer was only 18, won the UK’s prestigious Mercury Prize and remains the definitive grime full-length. Since then, he’s catapulted to international stardom, working with artists such Calvin Harris, Arctic Monkeys and Shakira, scoring four UK number one hits from his fourth album, 2009’s dance-oriented Tongue N’ Cheek. He released his eighth studio album Don’t Take It Personal earlier this year which marked a return to his earlier grime sound.

Newbury Racecourse’s Party In The Paddock racedays are a staple of the summer calendar and boast an afternoon of top-quality racing followed by a concert with both included in one ticket. Dizzee Rascal is Newbury’s second summer headliner with super-producer SIGALA already confirmed to perform live after racing on Weatherbys Super Sprint Day on Saturday 20th July with tickets on-sale now and proving popular.

Harry Walklin, Marketing Director for Newbury Racecourse said: “The confirmation of our Party In The Paddock headliners is always eagerly anticipated and we’re pleased to finalise 2024’s line-up with the announcement of Dizzee Rascal’s visit.

Both Dizzee Rascal and Sigala will be making their Newbury Racecourse debuts this summer and we’re set for two days of great racing and two bumper evening shows.

With big discounts available for securing tickets early we encourage those wishing to join us this summer to move as fast as they can to guarantee the lowest possible price.’’
