Trinity College Dublin has extended its contract with events management company MCD for another seven years, placing the renewed end date in 2027.

MCD, the organisation behind the Trinity Ball, works in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union (TCDSU) and Entertainment Department – known as Trinity Ents – to ensure a good show and secure top talents for the annual event.

“This is hugely beneficial to Trinity Ents and Trinity Students as it allows us to continue our long-standing partnership with MCD in running what is at the end of the day, the most unique, and famous night out in Ireland,” TCDSU Entertainments Officer David Flood told The University Times.

“Without this partnership, this ball wouldn’t be what it is today. We’re always looking at ways to improve the ball and adapt to overcome any challenges, whether that be an increase in booking fees, creating a more visually appealing ball, or making the ball more sustainable.

“We are excited to continue working in partnership with MCD and building on the successes of years gone by,” he added.

The Trinity Ball is a much-anticipated event in Dublin’s calendar. This year, tickets sold out in under an hour when they went on sale in February. MCD has played a large part in securing this fine reputation, along with the top-flight performers associated with the event.

The Coronas are set to headline the ball this year, with Kojaque, Mabel, Bugzy Malone and Nina Nesbitt also joining the lineup. Honey Dijon, Mall Grab, Mella Dee and Le Boom will also play.

MCD and Trinity College also collaborate on the famous Trinity Summer Series, which sees some of the world’s biggest stars descend on the city in a series of high-profile concerts.

This year, expect to see the likes of Janelle Monae, Foals, Vampire Weekend and Stereophonics take to the stage.

This is the third year the concerts will take place, with last year’s events having been attended by 25,000 people.
