Scottish singer-songwriter LEWIS CAPALDI – currently top of the Official UK Charts – will headline Edinburgh Summer Sessions on 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.
