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. Household names will perform an exclusive free concert for racegoers from 4.30pm to 8.30pm. Rita Ora, Example and DJ Wire, Soul II Soul, and Scott Mills will all be performing.
While live music post-racing 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.
We have amended our picnic policy for the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup in 2018 and beyond. While we encourage racegoers to bring a picnic to enjoy, racegoers will no longer be allowed to bring alcohol into the venue for this raceday. With long operating hours on this raceday due to the post-racing concert, we have taken this decision as part of our Drink Responsibly initiative to help ensure an enjoyable experience for all our guests.
Please also note that all racegoers must have entered the racecourse before the start of the final race. There will be no first entry admission for anyone after the start of the final race.
