Hannah Wants, Friend Within and indie-rockers Circa Waves were among the acts unveiled tonight by Trinity Ents to play Trinity Ball on Friday April 6.
They join the previously announced Jax Jones, Tom Walker and Versatile on the lineup — along with the long-expected headliner, George Ezra.
Electro-soul musician Sinead Harnett, Hak Baker and Tom Walker make up the singer-songwriter contingent of the lineup for those who like a more tranquil sonic experience.This is not to mention headliner George Ezra: ‘Staying at Tamara’s’, his sophomore record will be released this March and he is sure to play a lot of new material from the album.
House acts Hannah Wants and Denis Sulta will hopefully deliver some high-energy sets. Wants is also playing Coachella this year and previously had a residency on BBC Radio 1.
Dublin-based Grunge band Fangclub, Wild Youth and Circa Waves bring guitar music to the ball. Circa Waves are also playing the Isle of Wight festival this summer while Wild Youth are playing Sea Sessions in June.
Trinitones, Trinity Orchestra and DUDJ round out the lineup with College representation.
