It's back and better than ever for 2022 - with Capital pulling out all the stops for the return of their Summertime Ball. Fans were left disapoointed in 2020 and 2021 following the cancellation of the popular music event on account of the ongoing pandemic. But the beloved music station has more than made up for it this year with an all-star line-up promised for concert-goers.

Much like the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend tickets (opens in new tab) - many are keen for details on how to attend this year's hottest music show. Taking place on June 12, 2022 at Wembley Stadium, there's over 80,000 tickets up for grabs. And we've shared all the important details on how to get yours.

When do Capital Summertime Ball 2022 tickets go on sale?

Capital Summertime Ball 2022 tickets go on general sale on Thursday 28 April at 9am on Global Player. But fans who sign up for exclusive early-access on the app can get their tickets via the pre-sale - which takes place two days prior on Tuesday 26 April at 9am.

Barclaycard customers can also get exclusive access to the Tuesday 26th presale too. And they'll also receive 10% off the ticket price when playing with their Barclaycard. This is because the bank is the official sponsor for 2022.

  • £69.99 - Category 2
  • £64.99 - Category 3

We'll know and confirm the official prices when tickets go on pre-sale on Tuesday.

How old do you have to be to go to Summertime Ball?

You have to be aged 14 and over to attend the Summertime Ball by yourself. Otherwise children aged under 14 must be accompanied by an adult aged over 18, who is responsible for their welfare during the event.

There's also restrictions on kids who are aged under 12 too. "Children under 12 are not permitted in standing areas which includes the Pitch," reads a statement on the Wembley Stadium website (opens in new tab).
