We are thrilled to announce that our Ball headliner this year is... SIGALA,” it said. “Sigala’s infectious beats and incredible stage setup promise a show you’ll never forget.”

Sigala has become a fixture on the airwaves since his breakthrough debut album, as well as producing collaborations with notable names including John Newman, Nile Rogers and Hailee Steinfeld.

Supporting Sigala will be Zak Abel, another homegrown performer and recent arrival onto the scene. His signature blend of R&B and pop sounds will be a strong complement to Sigala’s upbeat style.
