First artists announced for Capital’s Summertime Ball

It’s that time of year again when Capital FM prepare to bring their Summertime Ball event to London’s Wembley Stadium. This year, the mammoth gig will take place on June 10 and earlier this morning, the station confirmed the first seven artists on this year’s line up.

The first to be announced was Canadian pop prince Shawn Mendes, who will be making his Summertime Ball debut this year. Joining him will be Zara Larsson, who will be making a return after a triumphant debut at the Ball last year.

Returning to the Ball for the third time will be trio Clean Bandit. With Zara also on the line up, we can expect an incredible performance of their collaboration ‘Symphony’, as well as their other huge hits. Bringing some grime to proceedings will be Stormzy, who’s debut album Gang Signs & Prayer went to number one earlier this year. Also on the line up are Jax Jones & Raye, who will be bringing the house (well, stadium) down with their huge dance anthem, ‘You Don’t Know Me’.

Charlie Puth will also be performing on June 10. He’s appeared at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball in the past but it’s his first Summertime Ball, so we can expect something quite special. Completing today’s artist announcement are Maroon 5, who will also be making their Ball debut. With over 15 years of hits under their belts, we can’t wait to hear what songs they’ll be singing on the day!

If that isn’t enough for you, seven more artists will be confirmed tomorrow. We can also expect more announcements during the week!

Capital’s Summertime Ball 2017 is shaping up to be the most phenomenal Ball yet, and we can’t wait to see who else will be joining the already stellar line up.

General tickets for the Ball go on sale on Thursday at 8am. However, a presale is available on Wednesday at 8am for Capital VIPs and Vodafone users. For more ticket information, check out the Capital FM website.
