Today (November 4) organisers have revealed that Ed Sheeran will headline the second event, with Lil Nas X set to give a UK exclusive performance.


Anne-Marie, Mabel, KSI, Griff, Joel Corry and JLS are also on the bill alongside The Capital Weekender Live With MistaJam And Friends, Shane Codd, Nathan Dawe and Jonasu.

Tickets go on sale here at 9am GMT tomorrow (November 5). A pre-sale for Capital VIPs and Barclaycard customers began at 9am today.

Jingle Bell Ball headliner Ed Sheeran, meanwhile, released his fourth album ‘=’ last week (October 29).


During a recent interview, the musician explained that he is planning to make “10 symbol records” in total, “but the next five won’t be maths.”

In a three-star review of Ed Sheeran’s new record, NME said: “So, ‘=’ adds up to another album on which Sheeran comes off like a millennial Lionel Richie – namely, a very gifted singer-songwriter who’s sometimes sunk by his saccharine streak.”
