Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball is back! On Saturday December 7th and Sunday December 8th, the hottest artists on the planet right now will perform live exclusively for Capital listeners at London’s iconic O2.
This morning on Capital Breakfast, Roman Kemp confirmed the first huge names for night one of the UK’s biggest Christmas party. Two more massive stars are still to be announced for Saturday’s show and fans will find out who else is playing night one of the Ball on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp on Wednesday.
Roman kicked off the big reveal week with the news that GRAMMY nominated superstar DJ Jax Jones will play night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball. Artist, singer, songwriter, DJ, remixer and multi-instrumentalist Jax Jones is also one of the world’s most sought-after producers, receiving over 3 billion global streams to date. His collaboration with Jess Glynne ‘One Touch’ was one of the summer’s hottest records, and he’s sure to treat Capital listeners to a hit-filled set at the O2.
Liam Payne will play Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball the day after he releases his hotly anticipated album ‘LP1’. Liam’s massively successful solo career has seen him sell more than 18 million singles including ‘Polaroid’, his Official Big Top 40 no.1 collab with Rita Ora ‘For You’ and most recent hit ‘Stack It Up’ featuring A Boogie wit da Hoodie.
Next, Roman revealed that Aitch will top off a sensational 2019 by making his debut at a Capital Ball. The young Manchester MC is one of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the UK rap scene in recent years and has made a huge impact on the charts with records ‘Taste (Make It Shake)’ – which reached no.2 on The Official Big Top 40 – and ‘Strike A Pose’ with Young T & Bugsey. After being tipped for success by the likes of Stormzy and Wiley, Aitch is most definitely one to watch at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball.
Another breakthrough act set to make his Jingle Bell Ball debut this year is Lauv. His hits include top 10 smash ‘I’m So Tired’ and his collaboration with Anne-Marie ‘Lonely’. Hotly tipped for a huge 2020 with his debut studio album ‘~how i’m feeling~’ set to drop next Spring, Lauv is another rising star whose performance at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball is not to be missed.
Jonas Blue is guaranteed to crank up the party vibe in the O2 with an epic set packed with hit after hit. DJ, pop powerhouse, songwriter and producer, Jonas Blue has almost 7.5 billion global streams and 40 million singles sales to his name, and has been certified platinum over 120 times around the world.
With massive tunes like ‘Polaroid’ with Liam Payne and ’Rise’ featuring Jack & Jack, he is one of the most in-demand DJs in the global clubbing and festival circuit.
Next, Roman Kemp revealed that some of the hottest breakthrough stars of 2019 will play night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball, starting with US pop songstress Ava Max.
The worldwide success of her multi-platinum hit ‘Sweet but Psycho’ – which spent three weeks at the top of The Official Big Top 40 and in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 – has cemented her as one of the hottest new singer-songwriters around.
British rap duo Young T & Bugsey will also make their debut at a Capital Ball this Christmas. The pair count Justin Bieber and Stormzy among their rapidly growing army of admirers, and are responsible for the massive top ten hit ‘Strike A Pose’ which features fellow Jingle Bell Baller Aitch. Another newcomer making his Capital Jingle Bell Ball debut is DJ Regard.
This July, his remix of Jay Sean’s track ‘Ride It’ became a viral sensation on TikTok and went on to spend two weeks at the top of The Official Big Top 40.
Rounding up a massive morning of announcements on Capital Breakfast, Roman Kemp revealed that global superstar Rita Ora also joins the line-up for night one of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball. Her phenomenal performances and irresistibly catchy pop hits – including The Official Big Top 40 chart-toppers ‘For You’ and ‘Let You Love Me’ – mean she is a huge favourite with Capital listeners.
Her latest album ‘Phoenix’ has amassed over 2 billion streams worldwide, and recent hit ‘Ritual’ saw her collaborate with Tiësto and fellow Jingle Bell Baller Jonas Blue.
Tune in to Capital Breakfast from 6am tomorrow and throughout this week to hear Roman Kemp reveal even more huge names for both nights of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball, with the first names for Sunday’s line-up set to be announced tomorrow morning and another two massive stars confirmed for Saturday’s show on Capital Breakfast on Wednesday.

We have another amazing show in store for our listeners with some of the hottest artists on the planet right now playing the UK’s biggest Christmas party.
