The Walpurgis Ball was introduced to the SCC event calendar in 2013. Traditionally a feast to ward off winter and evil spirits, the Walpurgis Ball seeks to celebrate the arrival of spring.

In Sweden, Walpurgis Night (Swedish: Valborgsmässoafton or simply Valborg) has more or less become a de facto half holiday. Singing traditional songs of spring is widespread throughout the country. The songs are mostly from the 19th century and were spread by students' spring festivities.

The strongest and most traditional spring festivities are also found in the old university cities, such as Uppsala and Lund, where undergraduates, graduates and alumni gather at events that last most of the day from early morning to late night on 30 April, or sista april ("The Last Day Of April") as it is called in Lund and often Uppsala.

This year, we are proud and delighted to announce that Loreen, the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest winner, will be our entertainment for the night.
