About The Wombats

Fresh from scoring the coveted #1 spot with fifth album ‘Fix Yourself, Not The World’ last month, indie heroes THE WOMBATS will make their Newmarket Nights debut on Friday 5th August.

From ‘Moving To New York’ to ‘Method To The Madness’, ‘Kill The Director’ and ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’, The Wombats have an enviable back catalogue of bonafide pop-tinged indie classics. The viral success of their 2015 hit ‘Greek Tragedy’ on TikTok has enraptured a whole new generation of fans, a feat they’ve managed to continually repeat since their 2007 debut ‘A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation’. The band have also just surpassed over 1.5 billion streams worldwide. Over 15 years into their career, the band are pulling in bigger audiences than ever before.

The Wombats said

“We’ve heard some amazing things about the Newmarket Nights crowd so can’t wait to be headlining for the first time this August. We love performing open-air shows, especially in new places, and are so excited to bring our tour to you all this Summer!”
