A family friendly outdoor music festival will be held at Oxford Stadium next month as part of celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Cowley venue – which reopened in April following a decade of closure – will be at the heart of the city’s celebrations as it is transformed from a race circuit to a vibrant outdoor arena for one night only.

Tribute acts including ABBA, Tom Jones, Little Mix, Katie Perry and Michael Jackson will take to the stage on Saturday, June 4, from 6pm for five-hours of live music with all age groups accommodated for.

The stage will be positioned on the centre green of the speedway track, with guests able to enjoy the evening outdoors or inside the venue’s Savana Bar and Restaurant.

Managing Director Kevin Boothby said the Disco Extravaganza forms part of the stadium’s ongoing plan to deliver fun and engaging events which bring together the local community.

“Celebrations to mark the Queen’s 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth are going to be memorable this year,” said Kevin.

“Not everyone living within the immediate vicinity of Oxford Stadium will have plans, so we felt obliged to put our space to use and deliver a celebratory concert for all generations.

“This fun, family friendly, concert will signal the beginning of our ambition to transform Oxford Stadium into a true multi-purpose venue for the people of Oxfordshire.

“We have a fantastic core of speedway and greyhound racing enthusiasts who we welcome through our doors each week. But we want Oxford Stadium to be a place where everyone can create memories.

“We hope to welcome as many families and groups of friends possible through our doors as part of this historic weekend of celebration.”

The concert forms part of Oxford Stadium’s major regeneration project, which launched on April 13 when the world-famous Oxford Cheetahs raced its first competitive speedway meeting in 15 years in front of a sell-out crowd.

The Cheetahs have hosted a further two sell-out fixtures since while the Frank Bruno Foundation has announced plans to operate a complementary wellbeing centre to support individuals experiencing mental health issues.

“The response from the public to our opening has been staggering,” said Kevin. “Parents and grandparents with lifetime memories of our venue are introducing a new generation to Oxford Stadium, which is fantastic to see and something my team and I feel very privileged to be part of.

“Placing the community at the heart of Oxford Stadium is what will make our operation a success and the initial engagement we have experienced points towards a very bright future.”
