It’s Officially Summer! – A Recap Of Capital FM’s Summertime Ball 2019 Performances

It’s that time of the year again where Capital FM—a United Kingdom-based contemporary hits radio station—hosts its annual Summertime Ball at the Wembley Stadium in order to officially kick off the summer season. Every year since the concert event began in 2009, tens of thousands of fans from across the U.K. and even also around the world come together in Wembley to rock and party their hearts out to their favorite tunes played by their favorite artists. Also, a portion of the accumulated profit from the ticket sales are always donated to Capital FM’s very own charity “Help a Capital Child” that seeks to provide aid to the homeless, abused, disabled and ill youths in London.
