The band JAMES are the latest act to join the Newmarket Nights summer season, hitting the stage on August 4.

Since forming in Manchester in 1982, James’ enduring creativity and musical legacy has made them one of the most influential British indie bands.

During their music career now spanning over 30 years, they have released 14 studio albums, selling 13 million albums worldwide and hits include Sit Down, Laid and She’s a Star.

With continued commercial success, last year their latest studio album, Girl at the End of the World’ went straight in at number two in the UK charts and received critical acclaim.

The 2016 season welcomed acts including Little Mix, Tears for Fears, Mark Ronson and the Kaiser Chiefs to the Adnams July Course, collectively playing to over 100,000 fans.
