Hey, guys I’m back and will be updating more regularly! I’ve got a few pre-written blog posts that I’m going to post so keep your eyes peeled! Here’s the first one from the 10th of June where I attended Summer Time Ball at Wembley Stadium.
So this Saturday was Capitals Summer Time Ball with Vodafone, which was the perfect break between my first and second set of exams. I’ve been to Summer Time Ball 3 years in a row, this being my 3rd year and Capital never disappoints!
This year it was just two of us who managed to make our way up to London on coach to see all the amazing acts that Vodafone and Capital were able to get lined up to perform this year. The headliner being Bruno Mars, who was incredible and performed songs from his new album 24k Magic and a few old songs like ‘When Was Your Man’! He was insane and definitely got the crowd hyped with his jazzy shoulder pops and his energy. There were so many amazing performers like Shawn Mendes, Stormzy, Zara Larsson, Little Mix, Rag ‘n Bone Man and Liam Payne just to name a few. I have to say my favourite act had to be Dua Lipa, she has a way of holding people and her songs are fun to dance too.
Concerts for me have always been a safe haven, a place where you go to have fun and see your favourite acts perform and be surrounded by people who are there for the exact same reason. Anyone who knows me, knows that I live for concerts just the environment of concerts and the excitement of going to see someone you’ve supported live it just brings so much light and happiness to my life. And enlight of recent events in both London and Manchester, the people at Capital dedicated it to both those attacks and the people affected by them. I have to say that this year the security really stepped up, with the scanners and pat downs and checking people’s bags as well as the police patrolling as people left the stadium to ensure everyone was safe.
Overall the Saturday was amazing and you can watch all of the acts on the Capital Website or on their SUMMERTIME BALL 2017 Playlist. To anyone who wants to go to a festival or something with different acts I recommend Summer Time Ball next year!
