A TRIO of superstar acts have been lined up to play at Goodwood.

Tinie Tempah, Pete Tong and Sigma will play the Three Friday Nights.

They play at the racecourse on June 2, 9 and 16 respectively and the hugely popular evening events are expected to sell out quickly.

Alex Eade, Goodwood Racecourse general manager, said: ‘This year’s Three Friday Nights line-up looks stronger than ever and we’re very excited to welcome these globally-acclaimed acts to Goodwood.

‘Tinie Tempah, Pete Tong and Sigma will all bring something really different to each night and I’m sure the crowds will be treated to unforgettable performances.

‘What makes these fixtures so special is that people can enjoy DJs who would normally play to massive venues in the intimacy of the Racecourse Parade Ring, which is a totally unique and beautiful setting, perfect for dancing.’

Tinie Tempah, with seven UK number one singles to his name, is the most decorated rap artist in the country.

But the Brit, Mobo and Novello award-winning artist is no stranger to the turntables and alongside his tour DJ, Charlesy, has spun the decks at top London clubs and taken up residencies in Ibiza.

Pete Tong has spent more than two decades shaping the tastes of the electronic generation. The definitive voice of dance music, Tong’s national radio shows and anthemic compilations are the go-to soundtracks for the UK’s house, techno and jungle fans.

Sigma, best known for their number one singles Nobody to Love and Changing, as well as recent hit Find Me, have quickly risen to their position as one of the leading dance pop acts in the world.

Each of the nights will feature a six-race card of horse racing before the sun goes down and lasers light up the dance floor in the Parade Ring.

Now in its seventh year, the event has previously seen sets from Mark Ronson, Basement Jaxx, Trevor Nelson and Rudimental.

Tickets go on general sale on Thursday, March 2. Adult tickets start from £35, with junior (13-17 years old) tickets from £26.25.

Gates for all three fixtures open at 4.30pm and the music performance runs from 9.30pm to 11pm. For tickets, hospitality and more information, visit Goodwood.com or call 01243 755055.
