Grammy and BRIT award nominated and multi platinum-selling artist Craig David will be heading to Market Rasen this summer.

The Jockey Club Live and Market Rasen Racecourses are excited to announce him as the first artist for the 2019 open air music season.
Having sold over 15 million albums, achieving 16 Top Ten hits and multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries, taking over festival stages around the world, selling out headline tours in seconds to securing a residency at the iconic Ibiza Rocks Hotel… it’s official, Craig David is back and in a big way! 
Initially rising to success with hit singles including ‘7 Days’, ‘Fill Me In’ and ‘Walking Away’, sixteen years later Craig was catapulted back into the charts and in to the nation’s hearts with Big Narstie on the gold certified single ‘When The Bassline Drops’, marking the beginning of his triumphant return. He has since released the number 1 album ‘Following My Intuition’, and the latest album ‘The Time Is Now’ has given Craig his fifth UK top 10 album.
