We’ve got a stellar line-up for Summer Ball this year with some of the biggest artists in the country coming to join us for one last celebration. Scottish sensation Lewis Capaldi, stars of the mockumentary series People Just Do Nothing, Kurupt FM, Belgian drum and bass legend Netsky, and last but certainly not least, West Sussex band The Feeling, will all be taking to the stage along with many others (and we’re also seeing the return of the fun fair as well).
What a 2019 it’s been so far for Lewis Capaldi. Four back-to-back sold out tours throughout the course of his young career, and now a number one single in “Someone You Loved”. Nobody could ask for a faster rise to stardom than this brilliant Scot. Expect to be laughing out loud when he comes on stage but crying when he starts singing. It’s a wonder that someone so incredibly funny can write such emotional music, and be ready for some performances of songs from his newly released debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Netsky is really old, but he’s only 30! That is just a testament to how incredible he has been over the last ten years, as he’s been ever present as one of the best producers in the world. Having collaborated with the likes of David Guetta, Macklemore and Lil Wayne, we welcome him to our little town and hope that we can create a worthy atmosphere!
Who would’ve thought? The stars of the mockumentary series People Just Do Nothing, Kurupt FM, have been appearing at events all over the country, and now they’re coming to Swansea to show us their skills with Garage and Drum and Bass. Veterans of Glastonbury and Reading, you can expect quite a show from this very talented group.
I know there will be a few people out there questioning whether or not they know who The Feeling are, but I can guarantee you now that you definitely do. “Fill my Little World” was one of the biggest songs in the UK back in 2005, along with “Sewn” the following year. In reality, The Feeling are low-key probably the biggest act we’ve got performing this year, so let’s show them the respect they deserve!
