GATES OPEN - 5:30pm | CONCERT - 8:00pm | AFTER PARTY - 9:30pm

Join us on Saturday 14th August and experience chart-topping sensation, Example, at Chelmsford City Racecourse as the British singer performs his biggest hits including "Changed the Way You Kiss Me" and "Stay Awake" at this phenomenal summertime concert!

“I have a longstanding connection to Essex… and in particular Chelmsford … my first girlfriend was from Hornchurch… my first manager and mentor was from Chelmsford… my first festival booking after my breakthrough chart success in 2010 was V Festival … my biggest ever crowd at a festival was V Fest 2013 … 90,000. It wasn’t entirely planned but it feels especially romantic that my first show back in the U.K. - post pandemic - is my old stomping ground of Chelmsford. Expect every hit in my catalogue, all the new bangers and bags of energy. See you soon Essex raving crew”

Support comes from Kiss FM’s Majestic who is currently riding high with his triple platinum selling Boney M collaboration RASPUTIN.
