The Jockey Club Live & Newmarket Racecourses have announced that pop sensation Little Mix will be headlining this year’s edition of Summer Saturday Live on 27th August 2016.

With over half a billion YouTube and Vevo views worldwide, they’ve also successfully become one of Britain’s greatest exports with massive tours in the US, Australia and Japan – breaking the Spice Girls’ long-held record of highest debut US chart position for a UK girl group in the process.

Little Mix said: “We can’t wait to come and see all of our fans at Summer Saturday Live at Newmarket in August! We love open air shows and promise an amazing day out – together we will give summer the perfect send off before school starts.”
