A live concert series is kicking off at Haydock Park Racecourse this summer, and some huge names are playing headline shows.

The Jockey Club Live is renowned for bringing live music to thousands of fans in the relaxed open-air setting of some of the UK’s biggest racecourses, and after 2021 saw music-lovers return for a series of spectacular shows by Tom Jones, McFly, and more, 2022 at Haydock Park is set to be absolutely no different.

A lineup of mega stars have already been confirmed to bring the tunes to the Newton-le-Willows based racecourse over the next couple of months, and there’s “something for everyone”.

Event organisers say it’s set to be “a wonderful summer of music and racing”.

But when does the series officially kick-off? Which famous names are set to be performing in the jam-packed lineup? And are there any tickets still available for the highly-anticipated shows? We have rounded up answers to all of those questions and more.


Here is everything you need to know The Jockey Club Live 2022 at Haydock Park Racecourse.

Who is performing?

Paloma Faith, Madness, and Rudimental are the three major names on this year’s lineup.


Double platinum and BRIT award-winning artist Paloma Faith will be heading out on her second UK tour within a year with this summer, and will be stopping off at Haydock Park to perform and have fans singing along to hits from her extensive and much-loved repertoire, as well as new songs from her fifth studio album Infinite Things.

Another chart-topping act set to hit Haydock Park this summer is the genre-defying, BRIT award-winning drum and bass band Rudimental, who will be playing a headline DJ set in August.

“We’re so excited live music is back,” Rudimental said of their first time at Haydock Park.


But by far one of the stand-outs of the 2022 Jockey Club Live series at Haydock Park has to be the legendary British band, Madness – who previously headlined the racecourse back in 2015 and will make a return next month.

Combining the genres of ska, reggae, motown, rock’n’roll and classic pop, Madness have become one of the music industry’s best-loved live acts, and have had so many hits to their name over the last couple of decades, including ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘It Must Be Love’, ‘Driving In My Car’, ‘Our House’, and the iconic 1982 number one single ‘House of Fun’.
