Capital announces Summertime Ball acts

Capital FM drafted in the weekday breakfast presenters on Saturday morning to announce the line-up for the 2012 Summertime Ball.

The acts were revealed one-by-one from 10am till midday, and include Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Usher and Katy Perry.

The Vodafone-sponsored ball takes place on Saturday 9th June, with The Wanted, Jessie J, Ed Sheeran, Flo Rida, Kelly Clarkson, Example and Pit Bull also appearing. Predictably, One Direction are not on the bill after the station dropped all their songs following the BRIT Awards.

Hash tags such as #ColdplayAtTheBall and #CapitalSTB were trending worldwide for the duration of the announcements.

95.8 Capital FM Breakfast Show and Summertime Ball presenter, Dave Berry said; “The secret’s out… the best ever line-up for the Summertime Ball is finally out there. It doesn’t get much bigger than this and I can’t wait to be there!”

The Summertime Ball supports Capital’s flagship charity, Help A Capital Child, with a donation being made from the proceeds of the event.
