England Rugby can today announce that legendary music duo DJ Luck and MC Neat have been signed to perform on the opening day of the HSBC London Sevens event (Saturday 25 May 2019), which takes place at Twickenham Stadium later this month (25-26 May 2019).
The renowned garage act will be playing some of their best-known hits throughout the afternoon, with fans able to catch them performing both inside the stadium and in the HSBC Sevens Fanzone (both accessible to all ticket-holders).
Speaking of their forthcoming gig, DJ Luck and MC Neat said: “We are hyped to be joining fans at Twickenham Stadium for the opening day of the HSBC London Sevens. We’ve heard it’s a great crowd and an epic atmosphere, so we can’t wait to be a part of it.”
This performance tops a range of additional entertainment that has been put in place for fans to enjoy throughout the weekend of the HSBC London Sevens. Between 45 electric and fast-paced rugby matches taking place across the weekend, spectators can enjoy family-friendly activities including a funfair, magician, a street food market, live music from DJs, bands and buskers, garden games and chillout zones.

The HSBC London Sevens is the penultimate leg of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, with the final taking place in Paris on the 1-2 June 2019.
Rugby Sevens is a format of rugby that consists of shorter games (with seven-minute halves), with seven players per team, but on the same sized pitch as 15-a-side rugby, resulting in a faster thrilling match, usually set alongside a festival-like backdrop of additional activities and entertainment.
Adult tickets for the HSBC London Sevens start from £30, with tickets for children ages 15 and under from £10. Children under two are admitted free of charge. Students can also currently benefit from a special offer of £20 per ticket.
