This morning (24.04.13), the huge name guest host of the Capital FM Summertime Ball with Vodafone was finally revealed by 95.8 Capital FM Breakfast Show duo Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon and echoed across the Capital network breakfast shows.
Award-winning musician and entertainer Justin Timberlake will guest host this summer’s biggest party, taking place on Sunday June 9th 2013 at London’s Wembley Stadium.
On hand to introduce the bill of star studded artists performing, Justin Timberlake is sure to add a sprinkle of A-list glamour to proceedings. Recently named as one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World, six-time Grammy and four-time Emmy award winner Justin Timberlake is one of the most successful artists of our time. His third solo album, The 20/20 Experience - which has spawned the hit singles Suit & Tie and Mirrors - is currently the UK’s fastest selling album of 2013. He will launch his Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour with superstar rapper Jay Z in July in North America.
This year, the Summertime Ball is loaded with the most acts Capital has ever had, performing to an 80,000 strong crowd of Capital FM fans. Listeners will need to stay tuned to 95 - 106 Capital FM over the coming days for more information, including the world class line-up of hit music artists taking to the stage for this year’s show. Those registered as Capital FM VIPs and Vodafone VIP customers are able to purchase tickets now, with the general ticket sale opening at 8am on Friday 26th April.
Celebrating its fifth year as one of the summer’s biggest music events, the Capital FM Summertime Ball follows hot on the heels of the two day sell-out Jingle Bell Ball which took place in December 2012. World class acts such as Bruno Mars, P!nk, One Direction and The Wanted performed at London’s O2 Arena to a roaring audience of 16,000 Capital Listeners on both days.
The Summertime Ball supports Capital’s flagship charity, Help A Capital Child, with a donation being made from the proceeds of the event.
