McFly will launch the Summer of Music today at Newmarket as they are to play a live set this evening following the days racing. Harry Judd, the bands drummer and the winner of Strictly Come Dancing in 2011 told The Sporting Life:
“We’re very excited to be performing at Newmarket Racecourses. We always enjoy playing racecourses and we are expecting a great atmosphere, so we’re really looking forward to it.”
The day starts at 11.15am when gates open. There is horse racing from 1.45pm which will be followed by an early evening performance from McFly.
