Rounding up a fantastic couple of weeks of Newmarket Nights announcements, with more due in the New Year, The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are delighted to welcome PETE TONG & THE HERITAGE ORCHESTRA performing Ibiza Classics on Friday 2nd August 2019.
There are few individuals in the world of dance music who can claim the kind of influence Pete Tong has had over the last twenty years. As the voice of Radio 1’s prestigious dance programming, Pete has held a commanding presence over the industry for more than two decades. With an unparalleled ear for new talent, Tong has become the leading tastemaker of the electronic generation. While he’s known publicly as Pete Tong the DJ, behind the scenes, he’s an industry icon.
With conductor Jules Buckley and 65 piece The Heritage Orchestra, Ibiza Classics combines unparalleled production, awe inspiring visuals, a mix of brand-new songs as well as your favourite White Isle tracks. In 2019 the show will see new reimagined tracks which will soon be featured on their third record, fused together with incredible visual effects and music technology.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director, Jockey Club Racecourses – East Region said
