He will be joined by headlining two-piece punk band Slaves, drum and bass music producer Wilkinson and indie rock band Eliza and the Bear.

The event follows a Graduation Dinner inside Heslington Hall and kicks off at 8pm. It will feature funfair rides, a silent disco, a casino and food vans.

Sam Maguire, the YUSU President, said: “I am really happy to have Scott Mills, he is an excellent addition to the line-up and I can’t wait to see him on Tuesday.”

Tickets are on sale at £36 and are open to University of York students and those who wish to attend alongside a University of York student.

Scott, who appeared in the last series of Strictly Come Dancing, came to York in September 2014 hosting a train filled with single people looking for love.
