Plan B said: “Excited to announce I’m headlining Haydock Park Racecourse this summer. Looking forward to playing songs from the new album.”

Jason Fildes, Haydock Park General Manager, said: “There’s nothing like a Saturday night of live music here at Haydock Park - so we’re thrilled to see Plan B joining us on July 21.

“He’s the latest in a spectacular line-up of great artists here over the last 10 years. It’s going to be a cracking evening with Plan B taking the stage as dusk falls after racing.”
