THE three special guests headlining Goodwood’s Three Friday Nights have been announced.
The top artists at the series which sees the Parade Ring transformed into a dancefloor under the stars have been named as Rudimental, Andy Cato from Groove Armada, and Radio 1 star Trevor Nelson.
Now in its third year, Goodwood has seen the likes of Mark Ronson, Mike Skinner and Boy George take to the decks - last year more than 20,000 guests headed to the sell-out nights and organisers anticipate even larger crowds in 2013.
May 31 will see Rudimental, the East London music quartet who burst out of London’s underground music scene, mixing it up in the Parade Ring and kicking off the first of The Three Friday Nights. This pioneering band who have received their first ever BRIT nomination for Best British Single 2013, Feel the Love, will bring their explosive energy to Goodwood for what is lined up to be a sensational night.
June 14 will welcome back one half of the amazing Groove Armada in the form of Andy Cato. Groove Armada established themselves as one of the world’s most-loved and biggest selling dance acts, storming the charts and headlining festivals all over the world.
Then, wrapping up the last of the Three Friday Nights events on June 21, will be Trevor Nelson. As a pioneer in the UK urban scene, Trevor continues to DJ around the globe, completing his 10th year residency at Pacha in Ibiza. Nelson’s skills have always been in his mixing and throughout his extensive career at BBC radio, he has perfectly merged breakthrough tracks with classics to bring the very best of mixes to millions of fans.
Goodwood Racecourse managing director Adam Waterworth said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating the third year of the Three Friday Nights at Goodwood. We love the mix of the adrenalin of horse racing combined with the buzz created by these world renowned DJs. I am confident that this year will be our best year yet.”
The festival experience includes a selection of bars, private boxes and restaurants for guests, as well as free buses and coaches run from the racecourse to major local towns and transport hubs; Southern Trains also runs an extra late-night service back to London.
