The Line-Up

Safety Information 

Capital’s Summertime Ball is going ahead as planned.  We work closely with Wembley for Capital’s Summertime Ball, as we do with The O2 for Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball, and all the venues where we have events to ensure there is rigorous security in place.  Whilst we obviously do not disclose the full details of our security measures, we ensure we carry out 100% bag searches, 100% metal detection (via wanding), and vehicle checks, in addition to a very high security presence at our events.  We have been operating with this higher level of security for some time.  We’re monitoring the threat level and will adjust measures further according to Government advice.
