Jessie J and The Vamps to headline Boomerang Hickstead

The All England Jumping Course is proud to present Boomerang Hickstead, a brand new two-day music event held on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September 2015. Top British singer/songwriter Jessie J and hit group The Vamps will headline the event, with further major acts to be revealed over the coming weeks.


Not only will Hickstead's International Arena provide a unique venue to witness performances from some of the world's best-selling artists, but the two-day music event will also include gourmet pop up restaurants, street food stalls and alternative entertainment.

Hickstead is known as the home of British showjumping, but this new departure is set to see thousands of music fans visit the famous showground in West Sussex and enjoy the superb facilities on offer.

The event will also help the Bunn family, directors of the All England Jumping Course, to invest more money back into the sport. This is something that was also very important to Hickstead's founder, the late Douglas Bunn, whose vision and passion helped the showground grow to become one of the most famous venues in the horse world.

"We are very excited to announce the launch of Boomerang Hickstead, our first major live music event," says Hickstead director Lizzie Bunn. "It's set to be a superb weekend of music, and the huge International Arena will provide a wonderful, open-air concert venue.

"Hickstead has played host to nearly all of the world's best horse and rider combinations since it first opened in 1960. Now, we're looking forward to seeing some of the world's best music acts follow in their footsteps by performing in the International Arena," adds Lizzie.

The event is named after Boomerang, Eddie Macken's famous horse who won the Hickstead Derby a record four consecutive times from 1976 to 1979. Every June, the winner of the Derby is presented with the Boomerang Trophy, made in his honour.

Tickets are on sale now, and cost £39.50 for 'Early Bird' day tickets, while standard day tickets cost £45. Click here for the Box Office.
