Rudimental, Example and Steve Aoki named as Goodwood’s Three Friday Nights acts
This year’s Three Friday Nights at Goodwood Racecourse are to feature DJ sets from three of the biggest names in international music; Rudimental, Example + DJ Wire and Steve Aoki. Rudimental will perform a DJ set after racing on Friday 1 June, Example + DJ Wire will take to the decks on the night of Friday 8 June and Steve Aoki will bring the party to an almighty crescendo on Friday 15 June.
Since their Mercury Prize nominated, BRIT and MOBO Award-winning No.1 debut album, ‘Home,’ Rudimental have established themselves as one of the biggest names in UK music. Having sold out tours and headlined major festivals, they have brought their unique sound to millions worldwide, establishing themselves as one of the most vibrant and exciting live shows around. Rudimental put on a phenomenal set at one of Goodwood’s Three Friday Nights in 2013 and such was their immense popularity that they will be the first act in the event’s eight-year history to return.
With a UK number one album, two UK number one singles and a BRIT Award nomination among his many achievements to date, Example has become a household name across Britain, Europe and the US. The Londoner has sold-out tours around the world and is known as one of the best live acts in the business, performing huge hits such as ‘Changed the way you kissed me’ and ‘Kickstarts.’ The Goodwood crowd can expect an explosive set of epic dance anthems.
Consistently featured as one of the top DJs in the world (No.9 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2017), Steve Aoki is an unstoppable force in the electronic dance world. Grammy-nominated and voted ‘Best DJ in America’ in 2015, Aoki has become globally renowned for his incredible headline performances at music festivals worldwide. He has collaborated with the likes of Will. I. Am., Louis Tomlinson, Linkin Park and Iggy Azalea and he has remixed the works of Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Drake, The Killers and Snoop Dogg. He has also just made waves for being the first DJ to play a gig in zero gravity.
Goodwood’s Three Friday Nights have become renowned locally as some of the most exciting events on the South Coast, with the DJ sets taking place after an evening of horseracing. After the last race has been run and the sun sets, the Parade Ring transforms into a laser-lit dancefloor as the atmosphere is ignited for three truly unforgettable nights.
