Spokesman James Hamilton said: “It also brings iconic superclub, Space Ibiza, to the event as part of the club’s farewell tour. Joining the main-stage headliners, Basement Jaxx, is the multi-instrumentalist Youngr, electronic trio Felon, mysterious house-duo Camelphat, long-time Connected residents Jesse James & Johnny Bloomfield, floor-fillers Soul Avengerz and many more.

“Party At The Races also announces a handpicked number of trusted brands to host other stages at the event including Café Mambo, Connected and Brighton Source, who’ll fly the flag for Brighton’s breaking live acts.”

James continued: “Party At The Races is a music event with a difference. From 1pm-3am, it offers a mix of day-time dancing and night-time clubbing, across three stages plus a fourth VIP stage. Combine its exceptional location with views across Brighton city and coastline, a carnival of dance and live music, entertainment including virtual horse racing, and you have a certified, magical day out.

“Leading the latest announcements on the outdoor Main Stage is the super-talented Youngr. The young Londoner has just dropped his debut single, ‘Out Of My System’, after making a name for himself with his one-take live performance videos of bootlegs of artists like Pharrell Williams. Incorporating drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals into his performances, he is a 21st century one-man-band not to be missed.

“Joining Youngr on the main stage is modern-day disco trio, Felon, comprising London residents Archie Ward, George Renwick and James Levey. Together they were responsible for ‘Isla’, Fat! Records’ biggest-selling track on Beatport, and have gone on to sign to Ultra Records, as well as to headline the Groove Garden Stage at Standon Calling.

“On the underground grandstand stage at Party At The Races, revellers can – by day – get moving to the sounds of the underground from long-running London clubnight, Connected. Over its ten-year reign in the capital, Connected have thrown sell-out parties everywhere from Ministry, Cable and Cargo, to further afield in Liverpool, Manchester and Brighton. It brings its trusted residents to Party At The Races to provide an array of cutting-edge tunes – Jesse James & Johnny Bloomfield, Ross McCormack, Lee Garrett, Vague Recollection to name only a few.

“When the sun sets over the Brighton Racecourse, the underground grandstand stage will be handed over to one of Ibiza’s most legendary venues, Space Ibiza, for what will be an unforgettable night.”

James added: “On the stage, high-quality house in varied style comes from Camelphat, and while not much is known about the duo’s identity, what is certain is their fine tune selection and solid production, supported by heavyweights Pete Tong, Carl Cox, Gorgon City, Solomun, MK, and Annie Mac.

“Joining them are production royalty, Rhythm Masters, made up of DJs Robert Chetcuti and Steve Mac, who’ve reworked the best in the business, including the likes of Michael Jackson, Todd Terry and David Morales.

“Also playing the Space Ibiza stage are Brighton home-grown talents, Prok & Fitch, known for their killer tech-house releases on labels such as Roger Sanchez’s Stealth, and Wax Worx.”
