This years Freshers Ball will take place in the Academy nightclub this Wednesday 12th of September, pharmacy with a lineup featuring well known Irish acts such as The Original Rudeboys and The Dead Prezidents.

The lineup, sovaldi which was announced during Orientation Week, also contains DJ Ahmed, Dj Simon Says and DJ Fred Gilbert. Radio Station Spin 103.8 and the Notorious DJs from the Button Factory will also feature at the event.

UCD Students’ Union Ents officer, Eoin Heffernan, spoke to the College Tribune about the event, stating, “We are doing a hip-hop vs house music night. The upstairs room will be hip-hop, with the Original Rudeboys headlining, and downstairs will be more of a dance one. We have released early bird tickets for a fiver, theres 200 of them, and the rest will go on sale for ten euro. We are really trying to bring the cost down compared to previous years”.

When asked about other upcoming events that may interest students, Heffernan confirmed that a Mystery Tour will take place on September 26th and that tickets will cost around €15. He also commented that the Mystery tour is “the kinda real fun event of the year, so we are looking forward to that one as well”.

Tickets for the Freshers Ball cost €10 and are available from any UCDSU shop or from the UCD Ents website.
