The Kaiser Chiefs will be taking centre stage at Market Rasen Racecourse on Saturday August 19.

The Jockey Club Live and Market Rasen Racecourse have revealed the award-winning band as the latest act to be headlining an open-air concert at the legsby Road venue this summer.

They join previously announced Olly Murs, who will be headlining on Friday, June 2.

Kaiser Chiefs are undoubtedly one of the best live bands the UK had produce in the past decade, the Brit Award-winning, multimillion selling band’s new album ‘Stay Together’ marks the bands sixth top 10 album and they are about to take on a UK Arena tour and play all the major festivals of Europe and beyond. The band first shot to recognition with their breakout hit ‘I Predict A Riot’ followed by smashes such as ‘Oh My God’, ‘Everyday I Love You Less and Less’, ‘Modern Way’, the #1 single ‘Ruby’, ‘Coming Home’ and last years ‘Hole In My Soul’ and ‘Parachute’. The bands irrepressible frontman, Ricky Wilson, was the first coach on The Voice UK to mentor the winning acts two years in a row in 2015 and 2016.

Open-air concerts at Market Rasen Racecourse offers a value for money experience unlike any other this summer. Alongside show-stopping headlining performances by some of the worlds biggest artists, the action kicks off earlier in the day with a six race card - giving fans the chance to witness powerful equine athletes who are stars in their own right, and enjoy the thrilling drama and spectacle of them racing for glory.
