Capital Summertime Ball ‘14

Hey Guys,

I hope you guys are all good and are enjoying this lovely weather we have been having. This blog is coming to you slightly earlier than I intended as I am going on holiday tomorrow until July – eek so excited. I am off to Portugal for a few days which will be epic- can’t wait to just kick back and to chill after all of the final year stress- aaaah! I will put some pictures up in my next blog from the trip.


So as this blog’s title suggests I am going to talk about my weekend and the fact I went to the SUMMERTIME BALL yesterday. It was so much fun, as I mentioned last blog I was going with my friend’s Amy, Stuart, Jack and his family. Overall there were 22 music acts and the ball latest a total of 7 hours. It was an amazing day and I had such a laugh. My favourite act of the day was Jessie J which I wasn’t necessarily expecting but she was incredible live and really involved the crowd as well which made it better for us. Watching Ed Sheeran was also amazing because he literally just had his guitar and his voice and that was it- so his performance was flawless. There were quite a few young boy-bands there as well like The Vamps, Rixton & Union J – which was hilarious because the screams were insane and I almost lost my hearing due to the volume of them. I’m going to have to be 100% honest here though and say that for 5SOS I was actually a large part of that screaming- they may be younger than me by a couple of years but still I am a big fan of theirs- so I traumatised my friend’s by screaming when they came on stage (the teenage girls had nothing on me haha). Some of the other acts that were really good were: Calvin Harris, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Little Mix, Ella Henderson and Clean Bandit.


The two main acts of the night were Pharell and Miley Cyrus- who were both so great live, but to be honest it was obvious they would be anyway. When Pharell sung Happy the whole crowd (all 80,000 of them) were up on their feet dancing away. Miley Cyrus was actually really good as a performer; obviously she did a few controversial things too but that kind of goes without saying.

But yeah it was such a good day and I’d love to go again next year and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is into the more pop based artists, if you’re into hardcore heavy metal then I’d probably suggest this type of thing isn’t for you haha.

Right that’s all folks; I will be back blogging in July so I will talk to you all then. In the mean time I hope you continue to have a fab summer break J

Take Care

Xoxo
