Yesterday (June 8), 80,000 music lovers gathered at Wembley Stadium in London for Capital’s Summertime Ball 2019. With a star-studded line up, including some of the world’s biggest artists, there was something for everyone to enjoy, and boy did we have the time of our lives.
Whether, like us, you were there to witness the action for yourselves, or if you’ve been catching up online, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favourite moments from Capital’s Summertime Ball 2019.
10. Sigala and Ella Eyre – ‘Just Got Paid’
DJ Sigala always knows how to get the crowd going and he kicked off his set with the infectious ‘Just Got Paid’ featuring vocal powerhouse Ella Eyre. We sang along, jumped along, and felt like we were making some big bucks (even though we probably only have £2.81 in our bank accounts).
9. Anne-Marie – ‘2002’
Anne-Marie always puts on a great show and she once again knocked it out of the stadium. With the audience singing along word for word, she saved the nostalgia-filled ‘2002’ for last and we loved it. We also took a fancy to her glasses, can we borrow them please?
8. Jonas Blue and HRVY – ‘Rise’
Jonas Blue brought a string of his hits to Wembley Stadium and was joined by rising star HRVY, who jumped in for Jack & Jack during ‘Rise’, whilst also lending his vocals and dance moves to ‘Polaroid’, ‘Mama’, and ‘Perfect Strangers’.
7. Sigrid – ‘Strangers’
Making her Ball debut, Norwegian songstress Sigrid was evidently super excited to be on the stage at Wembley Stadium. During her three-track set, she performed her hit single ‘Strangers’, which was one of our favourite songs from last year.
6. 5SOS – ‘She Looks So Perfect’
Returning to the Ball after several years, 5SOS and their huge set was completely lapped up by the crowd. Their set mixed newer material ‘Easier’, ‘Who Do You Love?’ and ‘Youngblood’, with classics like ‘Amnesia’. They also opened with their debut single ‘She Looks So Perfect’, which was a huge hit amongst the 80,000 strong crowd.
5. Tom Walker – ‘Leave a Light On’
Another artist who made his Ball debut was Tom Walker. The singer-songwriter blew us away with his gargantuan single ‘Leave a Light On’, which was 100% meant to be performed at full volume in stadiums. He seemed to love and appreciate every single second on stage, which made us adore him even more.
4. Jax Jones and Stefflon Don – ‘Instruction’
Not only did Jax Jones bring the party to Wembley, but he delivered a whole carnival during ‘Instruction’. As the final song in his set, he was joined by Stefflon Don, dancers in carnival attire, and a whole range of people in animal costumes who made their way through the crowd.
3. Maroon 5 – ‘Girls Like You’
Maroon 5, led by Adam Levine, delivered a strong set of songs from their discography, spanning over 15 years. From a stripped back version of ‘She Will Be Loved’ to the infectious ‘Moves Like Jagger’, there was no stopping the crowd from enjoying the hit-filled set. Unsurprisingly their most recent smash, ‘Girls Like You’ was one of the biggest crowd favourites from the day, with many putting on their best Cardi B impression to deliver her rap verse.
2. Halsey and Khalid
All four songs from Halsey’s set were a highlight, with the songstress delivering powerhouse performances of ‘Without You’ and latest single ‘Nightmare’, in addition to a beautiful slowed down version of ‘Closer’, her collaboration with The Chainsmokers. However, to bring her set to an end, Halsey brought Khalid back to the stage for a special performance of ‘Eastside’, which was a great moment.
1. Jonas Brothers and Busted – ‘Year 3000’
We adored the Jonas Brothers’ set from start to finish, with the band performing the classic ‘Burnin’ Up’ alongside latest releases ‘Sucker’ and ‘Cool’, without forgetting their take on Nick’s solo single ‘Jealous’ and Joe’s DNCE smash ‘Cake By The Ocean’. However, for their finale they truly pulled out all the stops. Delivering the most iconic moment of the day, and perhaps in Summertime Ball history, the Jonas Brothers brought out Busted onto to the stage to perform ‘Year 3000’. It’s a moment we’ve waited a lifetime for, and it was just as mind blowing as we’d anticipated – legends.
