2023 Summer Ball. Saturday 3 June.

Summer Ball end of year party, 3 June

Summer Ball is the ultimate end of year party where campus transforms into a one-night-only festival with 3,000 students getting dressed up and coming together for live music and free fairground rides, as well as street food and themed areas. It’s the only way to kick off the start of summer.

When and where is it? 

Summer Ball is on the evening of Saturday 3 June 2023 and is held on the Canterbury Campus of the University of Kent.

How do I get tickets? 

Tickets go on sale Friday 31 March 2023 at 12:00 and are available for purchase online from the Summer Ball website

Who puts on Summer Ball?

Kent Union, your students’ union, hosts the Summer Ball each year for students to celebrate the end of the academic year. Kent Union is a registered charity and all the profit they make is invested straight back into our students.

What was Summer Ball 2022 like?

Last year’s Summer Ball saw some huge acts including Sigala, Karen Harding, Notes, Avelino, Nippa, Santero and Twisted Time Machine, as well as world-class DJ’s. There was also free fairground rides and games, the VK double decker bus, food trucks, insta-worthy photo opportunities, free candy floss and popcorn, Redbull tropical bar, stilt walkers, face painters, 360 photo booth and so much more! Check out the official highlight video to get an idea of the vibe. 2023 is guaranteed to be just as epic!
