Music Showcase Weekend

22nd - 23rd July 2016

York Racecourse




The two days of the Music Showcase Weekend every July have become popular with racing and music fans alike.

Music Showcase Evening is the only evening of York’s year and on the racecourse itself, The EBF Lyric Fillies Stakes will be the centrepiece of a six race card. Won last season by French Dressing, trained by John Gosden, the Listed contest is likely to attract a high quality field.

It promises to be a fun filled 24 hours for racing and music fans as the following day the combination of top class racing and live music will continue. The racing action will include the Sky Bet York Stakes, a Group Two contest that attracts a field from the top stables for this middle distance race.

2016 acts will be following the likes of Sir Tom Jones, Kaiser Chiefs and The Beach Boys on our Friday evening or McFly, Scouting for Girls and Wet Wet Wet on Saturday. As soon as we confirm the artist we will start taking bookings, so watch out for the latest news.

The position of the stage for 2016 is as last year, at the southern end of Bustardthorpe Lawn on the main grandstand side. It is at about the one furlong mark, some 20 metres from the track facing parallel to the direction of running. The elevation of Knavesmire Stand steppings offers a view over the stage and the angle permits viewing from the County Stand Lawn. We will make good use of the giant screens for both racing and concert viewing.

  • County Stand badge
  • Car parking
  • Morning coffee & biscuits on arrival
  • Full 4 course gourmet lunch
  • Full afternoon tea
  • Grandstand viewing
  • York raceday TV
