Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup & Concert

Programme & Tickets

Saturday 12th August 2017

Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup & Concert

The Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup is one of the most unique fixtures in the global racing calendar and, combined with a post-racing concert, is one of the highlights of our year.

While live music post-racing featuring Craig David, All Saints and Feeder is one of the most popular features of Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup day, there is plenty more to keep racegoers entertained throughout the day.

An on-site fairground adds to the day’s unique charm, and, with champagne and cocktail bars spread across the racecourse, Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup day has become synonymous with late-summer fun and top class sporting action.

If you missed out on Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup tickets, why not take a look at our summer racing highlight, the King George Weekend. Or if you'd still like to attend, treat yourself to either the Furlong Club or a day in a restaurant at the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup.

The Experience

Hugely popular, racegoers return annually for the world’s premier international jockeys’ competition, followed by an evening concert featuring music stars past and present.


Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Day is an event as much as a sporting fixture and this is reflected by the wealth of entertainment on offer that complements the racing during the day and provides a superb footnote to it afterwards.

In addition to the cocktail bars and food outlets situated all across the racecourse, there is a specially constructed, pop-up fairground that takes over the Queen Anne Enclosure Lawns throughout the day.



It is after racing when the entertainment really heats up at the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup, with a fabulous live music concert, which has become known as the Party in the Paddock, in full cry. 

Craig David presents TS5 headlines this year's concert and he will be joined by All Saints and Welsh rock band Feeder.  Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills will also perform between sets and into the evening to keep racegoers entertained . 


Craig David presents ts5

From a UK Garage pioneer to a mainstream multi-million seller, Craig David is so much more than your average artist.  The Southampton born singer is a truly exceptional individual who transcends the norm, consistently outdoes expectation and continues to push musical boundaries.



All Saints (Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis, Natalie & Nicole Appleton) became one of the most successful pop groups of the 1990s, with two multi-platinum albums and record sales in excess of 12 million worldwide.  



Following their Top 10 album and sold out Autumn tour in 2016, Feeder return to complete the second half of their #AllBrightElectric Tour in 2017.  After the band completed their UK tour,  the new album 'All Bright Electric' saw Feeder return to the top 10 of the album charts after an eight-year absence.



Scott Mills will be hosting the after-racing concert and DJ’ing before and between acts. Scott's BBC Radio 1 show has created some of the most popular radio features ever, from Flirt Divert, Playground Insults and the world famous Innuendo Bingo. 


At no other racecourse, on no other day, do the world’s top jockeys come together and split into teams to compete with each other for the points needed to claim racing ultimate team prize.                                          


The Teams

Europe: Frankie Dettori (c), Alexander Pietsch, Adrie De Vries

Girls: Emma-Jayne Wilson (c), Michelle Payne, Josephine Gordon
