We’ve got some great acts lined up to put some BOOM in the Ball…

Check it out

Chase & Status (DJ Set)

Headlining Refectory

Hosted by MC Rage

Multi-award winning electronic music pioneers, Chase & Status are one of the most influential dance acts in the UK. Having dominated the underground scene before topping the charts, this heavyweight production duo have worked with everyone from Rihanna to Tinie Tempah and Dizzee Rascal.  

With the explosive MC Rage on mic duties, the Refectory is going off with a BANG when they hit the stage with a rip-roaring DJ set.


On the night

On top of a banging line-up, Leeds Ball puts the pow into your party with thrilling fairground rides, a headphone disco, entertainers, facepainters and lip-smacking street food. 

Check it out


Get into the action as you WHOOSH through the night on the Miami Thrill Ride, BUMP around on the dodgems and GASP at the beautiful sights atop the carousel.


Choose from a variety of delicious street food stalls to suit all dietary requirements and don’t forget to ZOOM over to the classy cocktail bar. Mine’s a Passion Fruit Woo-Woo!
