Throwback sounds at Leicester Racecourse


Leicester Racecourse are bringing us a taste of European summer as they announce the lineup for Racecourse Del Mar 2017. The event on Saturday 17 June will see 80s British Reggae stars Aswad perform live on stage plus a 90s club classics DJ set from legendary Dance Anthems DJ, Dave Pearce. The event will also include a full programme of evening racing.

Aswad, who will perform before the live action racing, are one of British reggae’s most well known names, with hits including Don’t Turn Around and Shine, which are sure to be huge crowd pleasers.

Dave Pearce’s set will follow the racing action and he is perhaps best known for his 10 year stint presenting Dance Anthems on BBC Radio 1. Having performed across the world, he’s recognized as one of Britain’s key roles in the development of dance and club culture. Away from the BBC Dave Pearce was one of the original lineup on Kiss FM back in 1990 and continues to be a hugely popular name across the dance music and broadcasting worlds.

Leicester Racecourse General Manager, Rob Bracken, commented, “2017 is set to be an exciting year for us here and Racecourse Del Mar is adding to the excitement that we already have around Ladies Day. Aswad and Dave Pearce will provide a perfect summer lineup to follow an evening of racing.”

Tickets for Racecourse Del Mar are priced at £20, which includes access to the live music and full programme of racing. Tickets are available from www.leicester-racecourse.co.uk
