Violet can exclusively reveal that Toploader have been announced as the first headliner for Christ’s May Ball 2018. 

Most famed for their 2000 hit Dancing in the Moonlight, the four-piece British band will be bringing their seventies feel-good vibes to the biannual ball, which will be taking place on Tuesday 19 June.

Head of Musical Entertainment for the event, Ryan Gidda, said: 'We're very excited to be able to announce Toploader at our ball as our first headliner. I know 'Dancing in the Moonlight', which has over 130 million hits on Spotify, is going to be an incredible moment on main stage, and we're just as excited about a potential second headliner in the works to add even more to the Christ's Ents schedule, stay tuned!' 

President Phoebe Gargaro added: 'I'd like to add how proud I am of our Entertainment team for finding such a great act, and I'm really excited to have Toploader performing at our ball this year.’

Tickets go on sale to Christ’s students at midday on Saturday 3 February, with general release 24 hours later. The second headliner for the ball will be revealed exclusively in Violet later this term.
