TOP LIVE EVENTS
The Summertime Ball is an annual concert held each year in London since 2009. The first incarnation was at the Emirates Stadium that is home to Arsenal football club, but since then it has moved to the new Wembley Stadium which offers a bigger capacity.
The Capital FM Summertime Ball is, as the current name hints, organised by London radio station Capital FM, who tend to describe is as a mini-festival rather than a concert, as it is very much the festival feel they are going for.
The Summertime Ball organisers have been very successful in attracting top-name acts to perform at the event, and in previous years have been headlined by such luminaries of the pop world as Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis, Rihanna, Usher, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Coldplay. Although this may seem a somewhat transatlantic list, the lineup is usually mainly made up of UK acts, taking the opportunity to perform to a large crowd on their home soil.
The full lineup and set times for the 2017 Summertime Ball is now available online:
The Capital FM website is at pains to point out that you can still keep up with the Summertime Ball online even if you can't get there in person. There will be coverage via:
There is also an extensive range of video performances from previous Summertime Balls on a dedicated channel on Youtube, with more likely to be quickly added after this year's event:
