If you're wondering what you're going to do this summer aside from sweating and wishing for autumn, consider this – more British Summer Time Hyde Park acts have been announced.

Headlining the festival on Thursday, July 6 are Kings of Leon, who will be joined by Pixies and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats. And now eight more acts have been confirmed...

LA group Local Natives (Gorilla Manor), Scottish band Frightened Rabbit (Painting of a Panic Attack) and Deaf Havana (All These Countless Nights) will all be supporting on the Thursday.

They'll be joined by Californian act Saint Motel (saintmotelivision), BBC Sound of 2017 runner-up Tom Grennan (Something in the Water), The Cactus Blossoms, Benjamin Booker and Billy Raffoul.

This year's event includes a number of big acts headlining, including Justin Bieber and The Killers.

Other acts already announced for British Summer Time 2017 include Green Day, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Phil Collins, with Blondie as his supporting act.

Last year's British Summer Time event saw the likes of Florence + the Machine, Take That, Mumford & Sons and Stevie Wonder play Hyde Park.
