The man of the moment, Lewis Capaldi will headline Edinburgh Summer Sessions on Wednesday 14th August, making his Summer Sessions festival debut and a much-welcomed return to Scottish soil after a whirlwind year for the young Bathgate-born singer. Currently top of the Official UK Charts with his mammoth heart-breaking tune ‘Someone You Loved’, Lewis Capaldi has gone from strength to strength since first appearing at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival back in 2017. Now a mainstay on BBC Radio 1 and with an upcoming UK headline tour which sold out in a matter of seconds, Lewis Capaldi is taking the music scene by storm with his down to earth, hilarious take on his new life as a celebrity. Whether it’s his nomination for the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, an appearance on Top of the Pops, scoring a Number One single, famous fans from Calvin Harris to Bastille or even having Peter Capaldi star in his music videos, Lewis Capaldi hasn’t forgotten where he came from and his debut headline show at Edinburgh Summer Sessions festival is sure to be a real highlight of 2019’s summer music calendar.

The much-loved Scottish outfit We Were Promised Jetpacks have a tremendous cult following and are a welcomed addition to the CHVRCHES date on 11th August. Releasing three stellar albums in five years, the band will bring big tunes and singalongs to the all-Scottish bill. Also added today are The Lightning Seeds, joining Madness on 18thAugust.

We Were Promised Jetpacks said: “We’re very excited to be playing alongside CHVRCHES under the castle in our hometown. It’s been great watching a local band grow into the international stars they are today and we’re looking forward to sharing the stage with them.”

Ian Broudie, from The Lightning Seeds said: “We are delighted to join the brilliant Madness at Edinburgh Summer Sessions this year. We have heard great things about the new festival and can’t wait to play to that famous Scottish crowd in the mighty Edinburgh capital!”
