On Saturday I was fortunate enough to attend the Capital Summertime Ball 2016! It was an amazing experience with INCREDIBLE acts!!!
This was my first time at the annual funfest (I’ve always been jealous of the people who go!) And I loved every minute of it! The opening acts were my favs Little Mix and they of course came out in style, they did a little remix to their smash hit Move! 💃🏽💃🏽
As each act came on you started to care less and less about what people thought of your dance moves and just cared about having a jumping along with the performers!
Halfway through the concert Louisa Johnson (from XFactor) and Clean Bandit came on to perform their song Tears. I fell in love with the studio version of this song, so I was a bit wary to compare however Louisa ABSOULUTLY SMASHED IT!!!! There are very few artists that you can say perform better live but Louisa Johnson is definitely one! 💜
Before the summer time ball I’d seen Ariana Grande once before but her performance on Saturday was remarkable, her vocals were beyond words and when she attempted the rap in Bang Bang it was out of this world! She did 3 songs from her new album Into You, Greedy ( 2nd favourite song on the album) and Dangerous Woman. Flo Rida who was another amazing act brought the already crazed atmosphere up by 1000.
There was also a surprise act from Dizzie Rascal which took me back to my primary school days. Another nostalgic act was Craig David I’ve always loved his music since before I can remember he is just SO talented, not many people can DJ, sing and interact with the crowd at the same time. I also later found out that he flew in from Parklife in Manchester to perform so I know have a new found respect for him as that’s dedication!
Tinie Tempah was the highlight of my night, I’d never seen him perform before so I didn’t really know what to expect. After last night I would defiantly see Tinie Tempah again because he had everybody on their feet including the parents who had been forced to come to the concert. I spend the majority of my time in bed and I’d been standing for 6 hours but when he came on he had me not caring that I was tired and that my feet would kill in the morning. He bought an amazing energy to the stage!🎶
I would definitely say that I would love to attend Capital Summertime Ball again if I was lucky enough to win tickets 🙈.I don’t know how soon I’ll be going back since the tickets always go on sale when I’m at school😩
