The countdown is on for Capital's 2018 Summertime Ball, which is guaranteed to be a spectacular showstopper of an event. A host of chart-topping artists from Craig David and Sean Paul to Jonas Blue, Shawn Mendes and Charlie Puth will perform at Wembley Stadium this Saturday, June 9th. Over 80,000 Capital listeners will pile into the venue to watch the afternoon-long musical extravaganza which has seen the likes of Little Mix (9 times!), Cheryl and Liam Payne perform in the past. Here's everything you need to know about the event.
