Tickets for Lincolnshire show by McFly go on sale today
Top band McFly are to play a venue in Lincolnshire this summer, and tickets go on sale today (Wednesday January 16).
Market Rasen Racecourse has revealed the two acts for its 2013 music events.
Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter Scott Mills will star at the racecourse on Saturday 17 August.
A fortnight later, on August 31, pop band McFly are on track for a concert to round off the summer.
Pip Kirkby, the racecourse’s general manager director, said: “Scott Mills and McFly are fantastic bookings for ‘Rasen Rocks’ 2013.
"We’re delighted to welcome such a successful Radio 1 DJ to our racecourse and McFly are a hugely popular band and our spectators will love them when they bring their infectious music to the racecourse.
“Rasen Rocks has grown in popularity each year and 2013 promises to be the best yet. We’re expecting a rush for tickets for what will be two really good evenings for all the family to enjoy. They are two fun-filled occasions that are not to be missed this summer.”
Scott Mills, who currently hosts the afternoon show on Radio 1 and has been with the station for 15 years, will perform an outside DJ set after the evening’s horse races have been run.
The DJ set format at the racecourse was superbly successful last summer with Radio 1’s Edith Bowman and it is set to be a very popular attraction again with Scott Mills.
McFly, who celebrate their tenth anniversary in 2013 and have sold more than ten million records worldwide, are Tom Fletcher (lead vocals, guitar and piano), Danny Jones (lead vocals and guitar), Dougie Poynter (backing vocals and bass guitar) and Harry Judd (drums).
Harry, who was the winner of Strictly Come Dancing two years ago, has said that the band love playing open air concerts at racecourses because of the great atmosphere.
The band’s next album is due out this summer.
