In 2014, Trinity Hall moshed to the music of Chase and Status. In 2015, Annie Mac lit up the Latham Lawn, and last year, Route 94 took up the exceptional mantle of household names and headliners.

Now Violet can reveal that the June Event have once more secured an incredible coup. This time it’s Jungle performing a DJ set.

Year after year, Tit Hall manage it Time and Time Again.

The modern soul collective will headline the Main Stage, backed up by notable sub-headliners: alternative blues/rock band Palace.

“The headliners at Tit Hall June Event have a reputation for variety and quality, and this year is no exception,” Isaac Squires, their Head of Music, explained. “We're happy to bring some of the best bands and DJs from around the country to Cambridge, and to Tit Hall.”

Jungle have already enjoyed gigantic success through their seven-piece band. They released a single eponymous album to immense acclaim in 2014 – a mesmeric, futuristic record, earning a Mercury Music Prize nomination and more than 100,000 sales in the UK alone.

"We don’t set out to sign flashy headliners. We focus on what we want the night to sound like”

Their frontmen, Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland, form the creative core of the group and, at the same time, have begun to forge a burgeoning career behind the decks. For J and T, this new direction has meant delving into club vibes and exploring electronics.

Meanwhile, Palace will share in the spotlight with their sumptuous, soulful music. The lush surroundings will mark a quite a departure from the dank art warehouse in Tottenham where the foursome emerged, grounding their sound in modernist guitar and esotericism.

“The June Event gets high-class acts because we don’t set out to sign flashy headliners. We focus on what we want the night to sound like.” Squires added. “We want good music all across our event.”

Tickets are on sale for the June Event, taking place on the Wednesday of May Week, 21st June, for £90 (£100 for queue jump). The event coincides with the Summer Solstice and carries the theme ‘Mind’s Eye’.

Frankie Stew & Harvey Gunn and Normanton St will also feature on the Main Stage. The Terrace Room DJ Stage will revolve around mixes from Artwork, as well as Denis Sulta, COUSN and Will Shanks.

Both Artwork and Denis Sulta have built up enviable fan-bases. While Artwork presents Art’s House is a fixture of the London calendar, Sulta is an emerging talent from the ever-fertile Glasgow scene.

Colonel Spanky’s Love Ensemble, a popular jazz band based composed of Cambridge students, will appear on the lighter Latham Lawn Stage, along with Senza Frame, OJB and Kikoband. At a fourth venue in Tit Hall, students will be running a silent disco and cabaret
