The Summertime Ball is a mini-festival in London, held each first or second Saturday of June by the radio station Capital. The first ball was at Emirates Stadium in 2009, and it has since been held at Wembley Stadium. It is promoted and broadcast by the Capital network.
There have been four different sponsors since its first event. From 2012 until 2018, Vodafone has been the sponsor. In 2009, Barclaycard sponsored the ball. In 2010 Cadburys sponsored the event, with Starbucks sponsoring the event in 2011 and Apple Music sponsoring the event in 2019.
A portion of the profit from ticket sales is donated to Help a Capital Child (formerly Help a London Child), the Capital charity. In 2015, a portion of ticket sales was donated to Global’s Make Some Noise.
This year there was a twist in how the line-up was announced through the use of billboards across the UK. People who spotted what were referred to as advertising ‘Ballboards’ were requested to text a specific number with their Location and the artist they saw and as a result of confirming an artist, Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp would give the caller a pair of tickets to this year’s Summertime Ball.
