Media and entertainment group Global has struck a deal with TikTok to livestream Capital's Summertime Ball with Barclaycard on TikTok, as well as on Global Player. 

The continuing partnership follows the success of the livestream of Capital's Jingle Bell Ball on TikTok last year, which attracted over 2m unique viewers in more than 20 countries.

Stars performing at the show include Harry Styles, David Guetta, KSI, Aitch, George Ezra, Anne-Marie and many more, with four-time GRAMMY Award-winning and seven-time BRIT Award-winning star Ed Sheeran confirmed as the opening act. The concert takes place at Wembley Stadium, London on Sunday 12 June in front of 80,000 Capital listeners. The livestream starts at 2pm BST.

“Capital is the most-followed radio brand in the world on TikTok so we know there’s a huge, highly engaged community and we’re delighted to partner with TikTok again,” said James Rea, Director of Broadcasting & Content at Global. “Through creators with exclusive access and a dedicated livestream of the star-studded line-up, the TikTok community will be able to join in, savour the atmosphere and see all the action with a virtual VIP experience of the UK’s biggest summer party live from the world-famous Wembley Stadium.”
