We bring people together at more than 150 events for our radio brands throughout the year.
With unrivalled access to presenters and performers we are uniquely placed to create distinctive events with the world’s top talent.
Twice a year we hold the biggest hit music events in the UK – Capital’s Summertime Ball and Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball – and the biggest names in music fly in to London to perform for our listeners. In 2017, we brought the likes of Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Sam Smith to Wembley Stadium and The O2, as well as Taylor Swift’s only European performance that year.
Capital Up Close brings our listeners closer to the world’s biggest hit music artists in intimate venues. Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran have both performed exclusive shows for Capital listeners at London’s indigo at The O2 and KOKO.
Capital’s Monster Mash-Up is a series of three Halloween gigs in three cities featuring sets from the world’s hottest artists, DJs and producers. The line up has so far featured performances and sets from acts including Martin Garrix, Sigala, The Chainsmokers, Rudimental, Tinie Tempah, Zara Larsson, Martin Solveig and Craig David.
We bring Heart listeners closer to their heroes with intimate Heart Live gigs featuring major recording artists such as Robbie Williams and Emeli Sandé, and we also host Classic FM Live twice a year at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
