Parade Ring turns dance floor at Goodwood

Comments Off on Parade Ring turns dance floor at Goodwood

Goodwood Racecourse is among the British race courses that have reinvigorated horse racing by juxtaposing a classically British sport with the current passion for live, outdoor music events. After an exciting evening of horses thundering down the straight, the usually sedate Parade Ring turns into one of the most glamorous dance floors in the UK, complete with spectacular laser show.

Now in its third year, the West Sussex venue, just over an hour from London, has seen the likes Mark Ronson, Mike Skinner and Boy George take to the decks and thrill the countryside with the sound of music. Last year over 20,000 guests soaked up this unique experience at the sell-out nights and organisers anticipate even larger crowds in 2013.

The 2013 acts and dates are Rudimental, Andy Cato (Groove Armada) and Trevor Nelson.

Goodwood Racecourse Managing Director, Adam Waterworth said:

We’re thrilled to be celebrating the third year of Three Friday Nights event at Goodwood. We love the mix of the adrenalin of horse racing combined with the world renowned D’s we have signed. I am confident that this year will be our best year yet.
