The #CapitalJBB is back for 2019. Taylor Swift, Stormzy, Sam Smith, Harry Styles and more are taking to the stage at The O2 on 7th and 8th of December this year.
Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball with SEAT is back! On Saturday December 7th and Sunday December 8th, the hottest artists on the planet right now will perform live exclusively for Capital listeners at London’s iconic O2.
Following the stellar success of his first LP ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’, the Croydon rapper has been honoured with prestigious awards including an Ivor Novello, two BRITs, a Global Award and six MOBO Awards.
This June, he made history with an iconic headline set at Glastonbury in what was one of the most hotly anticipated performances of the summer. His comeback single ‘Vossi Bop’ stormed to the top of the charts in April, before he returned to the no.1 spot with ‘Take Me Back to London’ with Ed Sheeran. He is a phenomenal performer and one of the UK’s most talented artists, and is sure to treat the O2 crowd to a high energy performance when he closes night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball.
Yes, you read that right, Harry Styles will play his first UK show this year at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball. Last month, Harry released his first new music in nearly two years with the massive comeback hit ‘Lights Up’, the lead single from his second album. His self-titled debut topped album charts around the world and he is one of the biggest stars on the planet.
Harry returns to Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball for the first time since One Direction’s set in 2012 to make his debut solo appearance at a Capital Ball. He joins the star-studded line-up for night 1, which also features his 1D bandmate Liam Payne.
Liam Payne will play Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball the day after he releases his hotly anticipated album 'LP1'.
Liam’s massively successful solo career has seen him sell more than 18 million singles including ‘Polaroid’, his Official Big Top 40 chart-topping collab with Rita Ora 'For You' and most recent hit 'Stack It Up' featuring A Boogie wit da Hoodie.
Global superstar Rita Ora also joins the line-up for night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball. Her phenomenal performances and irresistibly catchy pop hits – including The Official Big Top 40 chart-toppers 'For You' and 'Let You Love Me' - mean she is a huge favourite with Capital listeners.
Her latest album 'Phoenix' has amassed over 2 billion streams worldwide, and recent hit 'Ritual' saw her collaborate Tiësto and fellow Jingle Bell Baller Jonas Blue.
GRAMMY nominated superstar DJ Jax Jones will also play night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball. Artist, songwriter, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Jax Jones is also one of the world’s most sought-after producers, receiving over 3 billion global streams to date.
His collaboration with Jess Glynne 'One Touch' was one of the summer's hottest records, and he's sure to treat Capital listeners to a hit-filled set at the O2.
Jonas Blue is guaranteed to crank up the party vibe in the O2 with an epic set packed with hit after hit. DJ, pop powerhouse, songwriter and producer, Jonas Blue has almost 7.5 billion global streams and 40 million singles sales to his name, and has been certified platinum over 120 times around the world.
With massive tunes like 'Polaroid' with Liam Payne and 'Rise' featuring Jack & Jack, he is one of the most in-demand DJs in the global clubbing and festival circuit.
Some of the hottest breakthrough stars of 2019 will play night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball, starting with US pop songstress Ava Max.
The worldwide success of her multi-platinum hit 'Sweet but Psycho' - which spent three at the top of The Official Big Top 40 and in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 – has cemented her as one of the hottest new singer-songwriters around.
Aitch will top off a sensational 2019 by making his debut at a Capital Ball. The young Manchester MC is one of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the UK rap scene in recent years and has made a huge impact on the charts with records 'Taste (Make It Shake)' – which reached no.2 on The Official Big Top 40 – and 'Strike A Pose' with Young T & Bugsey.
After being tipped for success by the likes of Stormzy and Wiley, Aitch is most definitely one to watch at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball.
Lauv's hits include top 10 smash 'i’m so tired...' and his collaboration with Anne-Marie 'lonely'.
Hotly tipped for a huge 2020 with his debut studio album ‘~how i'm feeling~’ set to drop next Spring, Lauv is another rising star whose performance at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball is not to be missed.
British rap duo Young T & Bugsey will make their debut at a Capital Ball this Christmas.
