It’s not Taylor Swift…

2016 announcement ball but Cambridge Cambridge University headliner line may Music nothing sigma thieves Trinity Up

Nothing But Thieves and Sigma will be headlining, with support from Jigsaw ft. Dynamite MC.

Perhaps a little underwhelming since our previous announcement of Taylor Swift, but still impressive.

Nothing But Thieves are an English 5-piece alternative rock band.

After supporting the likes of Awolnation, Arcade Fire and Muse, and appearing at several major festivals including Reading & Leeds and Isle of Wight, NBT have played a sold-out headline tour in October 2015. Their debut album Nothing But Thieves peaked at #3 on the iTunes album chart and impressively reached #1 on the vinyl album chart.

Sigma is an English drum and bass duo from Leeds.

Their third released single Nobody To Love (a rework of Kanye West’s Bound 2) topped the UK Singles Chart upon release. Sigma followed up with their new song Changing (ft. Paloma Faith) in September 2014 which also reached #1, making them the only group in 2014 to have two back-to-back number one singles. Sigma’s fourth single Glitterball (ft Ella Henderson) secured their third iTunes number one. Sigma’s debut album Life was released in December 2015, reaching #28 in the UK Albums Chart.

Jigsaw (Jimmy Wallace) is a Scottish DJ who has previously performed alongside various internationally acclaimed artists, including Calvin Harris, Zane Lowe and Chase & Status. At Trinity, Jigsaw will be performing alongside the Gloucester based rapper Dynamite MC who has previously collaborated with Caspa, Andy C and DJ Zinc to name but a few.

Try not to be too disheartened by the lack of Taylor Swift… just shake it off.
