An instant hit with the fans, The Trackside, offers a wide range of draft beers and ciders including its award winning ‘1907 Okells TT Ale’ which was originally crafted to celebrate the centenary of the TT in 2007. The bar also offers a premium range of wines and spirits, soft drinks and pizzas as well as a spectacular view of the racing including ticketed access to an exclusive elevated viewing platform, which provides a superb spectator experience.
The Trackside will also be staging live music most evenings throughout the fortnight. This year’s bumper line up includes the popular bands VooDoo Bandits, Black Water Creek and Final Cut, with The Tides rounding out the festival fortnight on Friday 30th. You can catch your favourite bands across practice week at 8.30pm, and throughout race week at 7.30pm, with more for fans from 3.30pm following the Senior Manx Grand Prix Race.
London DJ duo The Smoking Guns, will also be live from The Trackside – performing a number of sets throughout the Classic TT Paddock Carnival on Friday 23rd August and between racing on Saturday 24th August. Following appearances at Glastonbury, the Toronto International Film Festival and the Secret Garden Party, the lady duo will be on the island spinning their favourite vinyl records including Northern soul stompers, vintage R&B, Latin boogaloo, funk, ska and more!
The Trackside opens on Saturday 17th August and can again be found in Noble’s Park, opposite the Classic TT Main Stage and adjacent to the TT VIP Suite. This newly created fan area is the only place to catch all the rider appearances, top music and big screen action, featuring a packed schedule of daily entertainment starting Friday 23rd with the Classic TT Paddock Carnival, and continuing through the Bank Holiday Weekend.
