George Ezra appears to have announced that he will be playing this year’s Trinity Ball, in a now deleted post on Ezra’s website. The date was included in a list of concerts during March, April and May across Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and North America.
Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union (TCDSU) Ents Officer Jonah Craig, who organises the annual ball in conjunction with the concert promotion company MCD, said: “Trinity Ents cannot confirm or deny any acts for Trinity Ball at this stage. We can 100% confirm that Trinity Ents or any organiser involved with Trinity Ball have not yet released any official information. To our knowledge, any information that exists is by no means official. We suggest that people looking for act information to keep an eye out online on the Trinity Ents Facebook page.”
Trinity Ball will take place on April 6 this year and will be the first year to have a theme. Tickets are usually made available in mid-February, with the full line-up announced several days before the launch of ticket sales.
Last year, ticket prices increased by €7 to €87 due to additional acts which were required to play at an earlier time, as well as security costs. This was the first time tickets to the Ball had increased in nearly a decade.
