We bring people together at more than 150 events for our radio brands throughout the year.
With unrivalled access to artists and presenters, 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 – where the biggest names in music fly in to London to perform for our listeners. In 2018, we brought the likes of Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and Little Mix to Wembley Stadium and The O2.
Capital Up Close brings our listeners closer to the world’s biggest hit music artists in intimate venues. Justin Timberlake and Ariana Grande have both performed exclusive shows for Capital listeners at London’s indigo at The O2 and KOKO.
We bring Heart listeners closer to their heroes with intimate Heart Live gigs featuring major recording artists such as Ed Sheeran and Robbie Williams. We also host Classic FM Live twice a year at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
