THE 'Earth, Wind and Fire Experience' is the latest musical event to entertain guests at Haydock Park this summer.

Summer gigs at Haydock Park have become a staple of the events calendar over the years, with acts such as Chic, Sir Tom Jones, and Kaiser Chiefs all taking to the stage after a day of horse racing.

This summer will see Busted, Pete Tong's Ibiza Classics, and now the Earth, Wind, and Fire Experience coming to play at the Haydock Park stage.

Known for funk and soul classics such as 'September', 'Boogie Wonderland', and 'Let's Groove', the band has been put together by band member Al McKay and has had rave reviews on tours across the globe.
