The Jockey Club Live are excited to announce the first headliner of Newmarket Nights 2020; THE SCRIPT. Performing on Friday 19th June, they join previously revealed Summer Saturday Live headliners McFly (Saturday 29th August).
The alt-pop trio, fronted by Danny O’Donoghue, are one of the most successful Irish acts of recent times, achieving 6 billion streams, 30 million single sales, 10.8 million album sales, over 12 million monthly Spotify listeners and 1.8 million ticket sales globally.

The arena-filling band will open the summer season at Newmarket Racecourses on Friday 19th June 2020, with hits including ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’, ‘Hall of Fame’, ‘For The First Time’ and ‘Superheroes’.
