This year’s theme is Wanderlust.

Queens’ May Ball is renowned for featuring up-and-coming acts before they hit the big time. Previous notable acts have included Florence and the Machine, Bastille, The Kaiser Chiefs and Bombay Bicycle Club.

Bastille played Queens’ May Ball in 2013, before they were cool.

Queens’ previous May Ball was themed “The Museum of Curiosity”, and was praised as one of the best in Cambridge for 2015.

Wanderlust is defined on Google as “A strong desire to travel” – The Tab isn’t sure what this means for the theme, but can hazard that it has something to do with travel.
