Young Kato to play Selwyn Snowball

TCS Reporter 24 October 2014

In the build up to Selwyn Snowball's presale ticket launch tomorrow, The Cambridge Student are able to exclusively announce that the first of their major acts will be the electrifying indie rock band, Young Kato

According to Clash magazine, “Young Kato seriously know how to put on a show,” and “are building epic, soaring anthems designed to be heard across the land.” Their debut EP ‘Drink, Dance, Play’ went straight in at number 18 in the UK indie charts.

Their music has been featured in the Made in Chelsea soundtrack, alongside The Maccabees, Vampire Weekend and The 1975. In addition to this, they have toured with, and supported the likes of, We Are Scientists, Awolnation and Bastille, which is no mean feat given that they only formed in 2011. 

Vice President Johnny Dodd commented saying, "We’re extremely excited to be bringing them to Selwyn!"

The name of the headline act is yet to be announced. Last year the snowball hosted Hudson Taylor, an Irish band that are Radio 1 favourites and reached number 14 in the charts with their debut EP.

Ticket presales will begin tomorrow morning at 10am.

The winner of the TCS share to win competition will be anounced at the Snowball launch party at Clare ents on Friday 31st October at Clare Cellars.
