Dance icons Faithless to host huge outdoor DJ party in north west

Sister Bliss will take to the decks at Carlisle Racecourse

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 26th May 2023

Faithless, one of the biggest names in dance and electronic music, will be hosting a blistering DJ set in a beautiful outdoor setting this summer. 

World-renowned DJ and record producer Sister Bliss will be taking to the decks at Carlisle Racecourse, as part of a packed calendar of events for The Jockey Club Live

Taking place on Saturday 8 July after the racing, the plan is to transport this corner of Cumbria back to the heyday of dance music. 

Sister Bliss was the musical force behind Faithless, together with the band’s late, great frontman Maxi Jazz and producer Rollo Armstrong.

The group’s music career spanned 17 years, selling more than 15 million records worldwide and playing live to millions across the globe. 


They’ve headlined festivals and arenas and released timeless songs like ‘Insomnia’, ‘God is a DJ’, and ‘We Come 1’. 

Following her 28-year career that went from the underground UK club scene to the biggest stages in the world, Sister Bliss has deservedly established herself as one of Britain’s most iconic electronic artists.

Helen Willis, general manager of Carlisle Racecourse, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Sister Bliss to Carlisle Racecourse for a Faithless DJ Set.

“Faithless are one of the most iconic giants of electronic music and we know fans will be dancing the night away to their biggest hits and more on Saturday 8 July.”

Sister Bliss said: “Summer outdoor shows are some of my absolute favourites and the crowd response is always remarkable. 


“We have a spectacular show planned so can’t wait to see you all there!”

The Jockey Club Live events blend an exciting evening at the races with spectacular live music, with other names performing across the north west this summer including Pete Tong’s Ibiza Classic, Craig David, and Nile Rodgers & CHIC. 

The summer series is already well underway, with Sugababes wowing the crowds at Aintree last weekend. 

The Faithless DJ Set fixture coincides with the OEE Great Community Raceday, brought to you by OEE Container Technology Ltd. 

Last year, the event raised over £3,000 for six different Cumbrian charities. £1 from every advanced ticket sold will be donated to the selected charities as part of the Great Community Raceday.


Tickets for Faithless DJ Set at Carlisle Racecourse on Saturday 8 July are on sale now, priced from £37 for adults and £20 for children. You can buy yours at thejockeyclub.co.uk/carlisle/events-tickets/faithless/.
