We Were Promised Jetpacks and The Lightning Seeds also join the star-studded line-up of Florence + the Machine, CHVRCHES, James, Courteeners, Madness, Primal Scream, Johnny Marr and more.
Edinburgh Summer Sessions will see eight dates of incredible music brought to the Capital, against the one of a kind backdrop of Edinburgh Castle in the Ross Bandstand, during Edinburgh International Festival.
Bathgate boy Capaldi, who is currently top of the UK singles chart with Someone You Loved, said: “Well, well, well. Look who’s playing a big f*ck off outdoor show in Edinburgh this summer, ya big lovely b*stards.”

The much-loved Scottish outfit We Were Promised Jetpacks have a tremendous cult following and are a welcomed addition to the CHVRCHES date on 11 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 18 August.
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!”
