Skylights to perform before Knights clash against Batley!

York RLFC are delighted to announce that local band Skylights will perform at the LNER Community Stadium ahead of our clash against Batley Bulldogs on Monday 18th September (7.45pm).

The York indie rock band will be playing a 30-minute set from 6.45pm in their first ever performance at the LNER Community Stadium, creating an electric atmosphere ahead of the Knights’ final Betfred Championship home match of the season.

York RLFC are delighted to continue our association with Club supporters Skylights, whose single ‘Britannia’ has featured as our walk-out song throughout the 2023 campaign.

Infusing brit pop and post punk influences from the likes of Oasis, Courteeners and The Verve, Skylights have sold out shows across the country in cities such as London, Leeds and Aberdeen.

The band’s ‘What You Are’ album reached the top 25 in the UK’s Official Album Vinyl Chart last year.

Band guitarist Turnbull Smith said on playing at the LNER Community Stadium: “We’re massively excited to be performing before the York Knights match against Batley Bulldogs.

“It’s an honour to be able to play at the LNER Community Stadium. In terms of venues in York, it doesn’t get any better!

“We’ve not performed in York since March last year, so it’ll be great to do a homecoming set.

“I’d like to thank Clint and everyone at York RLFC for their support and for their help in pushing ourselves. We can’t wait to be part of an amazing night!”

Turnstiles for this fixture open at 6.15pm and tickets provide access to both the Skylights performance and the Knights’ clash with Batley.
