LEWIS CAPALDI has joined the bill at this year’s Edinburgh Summer Sessions.

Currently number 1 in the Official UK Charts, the Scottish singer-songwriter will headline the event on Wednesday 14th August. He joins a star-studded line-up of acts including Florence + the Machine, CHVRCHES, James, Courteeners, Madness, Primal Scream and Johnny Marr who will all play against the one of a kind backdrop of Edinburgh Castle in the Ross Bandstand, during the Edinburgh International Festival.

It’s another date to add to Capaldi’s busy schedule after he recently announced his very first world tour. Taking in large parts of the US and Europe, the tour will end with two sold-out dates at Glasgow’s O2 Academy in December.

Also joining the bill this August are We Were Promised Jetpacks, who will support CHVRCHES on 11th August, and The Lightning Seeds who will support Madness on 18th August.

Tickets for the Lewis Capaldi gig go on sale on Friday at 9am. Find out details here.
