Paloma Faith to headline York Music Showcase this summer

It’s been described as ‘a summer day to savour’ – a day’s racing at York Racecourse followed by Paloma Faith in concert.

Paloma is the first act to be announced for this year’s concerts at the races.

She will be live on Summer Music Saturday – June 30. Tickets go on sale at 9am today (Monday, January 29).

Paloma said:

I’m really looking forward to playing York Racecourse next summer, it’ll be one of the first chances I’ll get to play tracks from The Architect in the sunshine.

I love a day out at the races too so can’t wait for it.

Making chart history

That followed the huge success of her 2014 album, A Perfect Contradiction, which spent 29 weeks in the Top 10 Albums Chart, 66 weeks in the Top 40, and 100 weeks in the Top 200.

The new album is currently on course to become her fourth double platinum album in a row – which would make her the first British woman in chart history to achieve this feat.


“Everyone at the course is really excited that Paloma has chosen York to tour her new album,” said York Racecourse head of marketing James Brennan.

“Add in the spectacle of the racing itself and we hope it will prove a summer day to savour.”

It promises to be a fun filled summer for racing and music fans. The evening of Friday July 27 and Saturday 28 July will also see the combination of racing and live music.

Details of the music acts for these dates will be announced once they are confirmed.
