Spotify Wrapped is finally here! This year, the coveted recap revealed who are the artists making waves across the UK. And despite the efforts of some to meticulously curate their musical taste, Taylor Swift still emerged as their #1 artist —that’s what happens when you listen to one of her songs to see what the buzz is about!
Whether you want to admit —or not— that you are a Top 40 Charts lover is up to you. But we bet that listening to Spotify Wrapped’s Top Artists surrounded by a sea of light will make you a new fan.
After a year of waiting, the Brits have finally spoken, Taylor Swift takes the crown home as UK’s Spotify Wrapped Top Artist. While some thought that Harry Styles would take the lead with As It Was, —to our surprise— the US singer dethroned him after releasing her Midnights album.
And what better way for Swifties to rejoice in their queen’s victory than by Shaking It Off to some of her anthems surrounded by a sea of candles? Candlelight: Tribute To Taylor Swift will make your Wildest Dreams come true as a string quartet plays a specially curated setlist that covers everything from Taylor’s country-girl era, Love Story and You Belong With Me, to her folk days, Cardigan.
We can’t imagine better way to start Christmas than to listen to Ed Sheeran by candlelight. Even though the renowned singer-songwriter didn’t make it this year as UK’s Spotify Wrapped Top Artist, his song Perfect is UK’s #1 Most Streamed Christmas Number 1 of all time — guess this season isn’t called the cuffing season for anything.
So, on that note, why not experience Ed Sheeran’s music in an intimate and relaxing venue? Shivers will descend upon you as hundreds of candles light up the room. Hear Morassi Quartet play some of your favourite anthems like Thinking Out Loud, Overpass Graffiti, Afterglow, Make It Rain and many more. You’ll want to make a Bad Habit out of this one!
Although Queen Bey didn’t make it to UK’s Spotify Wrapped Top 10 Artists, there’s no doubt that she’s still one of the best artists ever —and if you don’t believe us, let her incredible musical trajectory speak for herself. The Texas-born idol boasts a mammoth 28 awards, the most-awarded singer in Grammy history.
And now all the Single Ladies can listen to Beyoncé‘s incredible musical repertoire by candlelight. From her 2000’s bops like Crazy in Love to her empowering Hold Up, the City String Ensemble will make sure you feel Drunk in Love after this Irreplaceable evening.
One artist that has been taking the UK by storm is singer-songwriter Celeste. Her debut album, Not Your Muse, released in 2021, debuted at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and earned top nominations in last year’s Brit Awards. But as if that were enough, now you listen to her heavenly voice surrounded by hundreds of candles.
The British-Jamaican artist will perform at the incredible Central Hall Westminster, a collection of her most acclaimed songs. As part of the concert, award-winning conductor Robert Ames will lead the London Orchestra — if you ask us, there is no more magical combination than this one.
If there’s a band that never disappoints, then it’s most definitely Coldplay. Year after year, the alt-rock band remains one of the favourites among Brits. Their latest tour, Music of the Spheres, has been described as a once-in-a-lifetime show. But if you missed it, don’t worry! here’s an alternative to live the unparalleled energy of Coldplay
Let yourself be swept away by a vivid atmosphere filled with a sea of candles as a pianist, violinist and percussionist transports you through a year of Coldplay’s back catalogue. Move at the Speed of Sound as you hear songs such as A Sky Full of Stars, Paradise, The Scientist, and many many more. We can’t imagine a more magical evening to experience Coldplay’s songs that carry so many feelings, memories and emotions.
Fleetwood Mac has become a true rite of passage between generations, from the days our parents danced endlessly to the band at festivals to us listening to them on the radio.
No matter day and age, Fleetwood Mac just keeps getting more legendary. And we can think of a better way to say farewell to the late Christine McVie than by listening to the band in all its glory — surrounded by hundreds of candles as a violin and piano reimagine some of your favourite anthems like Dreams, The Chain, You Make Loving Fun, Gypsy and many many more.
