As ever, the array of acts on offer at this year’s may balls is astounding in quality and range. Doubtless, whatever may balls you may be heading to this week, you’re in for an amazing evening. But here’s our pick of the top acts secured by may balls this year.

Robinson – VANT

On Friday, up and coming indie rock band VANT hit the main stage of Robinson May Ball. Robinson always secures exciting new acts, but this is a brave and exciting move for the may ball team, who are clearly in tune with changing music tastes and have offered up something a little different to the obvious choice.

Jesus – Laura Mvula and Fickle Friends

Arguably the most consistently successful in their music line-ups, securing Jack Garratt and James Bay in recent years, Jesus have done it again with their two main acts. Chart dabblers Fickle Friends are sure to get ball-goers dancing earlier on in the evening and Mvula’s artistic integrity should make for a stunning performance at this year’s ball.

Downing – Scouting For Girls

Downing have opted for the classic approach of picking out an act slightly past their peak, but certainly a nostalgic triumph for a millennial audience. The numerous hits of the British band will surely go down a treat at the museum-themed ball.

St John’s – Blonde

Following their recent trend of punting for floor-filling dance acts, Blonde, in place of Sigala are a great back up in times of crisis. Their hits such as ‘Nothing Like This’ and ‘All Cried Out’ should go down well amid the 7th best party in the world.

Magdalene – KT Tunstall

Another retreat into the early noughties, though an excellent one. Tunstall’s relaxed and listenable sound should be a crowd-pleaser at Magdalene’s white-tie event.

King’s – Courtney Act and Conchita Wurst

This Ru Paul and Eurovision combo should provide a wonderfully apt highlight for the most laid back and eccentric may week offering.
