DJ Danny Howard will be taking to the decks at the Ricoh Arena on August 21

Danny Howard from BBC Radio 1 will have rugby fans dancing at the Ricoh Arena following the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series next month.

One of the UK’s highest profile DJs will be providing the post-match entertainment in the Jaguar Hall on Friday, August 21.

His dance tracks will follow the Group B fixtures taking place in the stadium bowl between Wasps, Harlequins, Northampton Saints and Saracens. Over-18s will be treated to a night of top tunes with tickets now available costing £10.

A combined ticket is also available costing £15, which includes entry to the Premiership Rugby 7s and the after party, is also available here.

Danny has 1.8 million people listening to his Dance Anthems shows on BBC Radio 1 every Saturday, as well as broadcasting weekly on American satellite station SiriusXM, and producing a monthly column for the worldwide DJ Mag.

The increasingly-popular DJ has a weekly residency in Ibiza, is a regular at Amnesia, Privilege, Sankeys and Space and has also taken centre-stage at Global Gathering, Gatecrasher, Ministry of Sound, Pacha in New York, Creamfields and the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas as well as the Spinnin’ and Perfecto parties in Miami.

Danny’s impressive CV continues since he has released over 20 tracks after being signed up by Spinnin’ Records and he has worked with the legendary Paul Oakenfold and DJ Fresh. His studio success has not just been limited to the UK since he reached the US Billboard Top 20 with the Futuristic Polar Bears.

In 2015, Danny’s Nothing Else Matters tour has seen him play 14 dates across the UK, which involved Annie Mac, Disciples, Philip George, 99 Souls and GotSome.

Danny will be supported by Ministry of Sound’s resident DJ Sheldon, who has travelled the globe and reached the top 40 in the Beatport charts with his single Inception in conjunction with Haji and number one on the Billboard Dance Charts with his mix of Olivia Somerlyn’s Parachute.

Andy Gibb, managing director at the Ricoh Arena, said Danny had provided the soundtrack to summer for many fans of dance music.

He says: “Danny has definitely made a name for himself on the DJ scene not just in this country but overseas as well.

“He is extremely talented and enthusiastic about British music and we can’t wait to see and hear him in action at the Ricoh Arena as he replaces Becca Dudley who is no longer able to come along on August 21.

“It seems as if Danny is on a mission to promote British music as the best in the world and I am sure his dance music will prove popular with over-18s rugby fans after they have watched the Rugby 7s.

“Our Fans’ Village has been extremely well received with a wide array of entertainment and this is certainly going to provide a lively end to a fantastic day of rugby since it will give supporters the chance to continue the party until late in the night.”

Tickets to just attend the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s are also available, costing £10 for adults, £5 for under-18s and free for Wasps 2015/16 season-ticket holders by ringing 0844 847 1867 or by clicking here.
