London summers are always packed full of international music talent, but one concert series that always seems to draw in some of the very biggest names is BST Hyde Park.

Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Black Sabbath, Tom Jones and Celine Dion are just a few of the heavy-hitters to have come to the capital for BST since it launched in 2013, and after a Covid-enforced absence, this year things will pick up where they left off.

If you’ve already got tickets and are counting down the days, or you’re still in the market for some, here’s what you need to know.

When is BST Hyde Park?

The gigs will spread out across three weekends, starting on June 24 and finishing on July 10. Gates will open at approximately 2pm on each of the days.

Where in Hyde Park will the concerts take place?

The gigs will be on the Parade Ground on the eastern side of Hyde Park. There are a number of Underground stations all within walking distance — Marble Arch, Hyde Park Corner, Bond Street, Knightsbridge, Green Park (step-free access) and Lancaster Gate — and numerous bus routes. Check the TfL website on the day to make sure they’re all in operation.

Who’s on the line-up?

It’s a starry programme, as it always is with this concert series. Some of the days will feel like mini festivals, with bands playing throughout the day in the lead up to the headline slot in the evening. We’re still waiting to hear the full line-ups for some of the concerts, or whether some of them will have any support, but all the main acts have been confirmed.

There are some landmark shows in there. Elton John will be playing live in London for what could be one of the last times — he’s set to retire from touring in 2023. The Rolling Stones, who play twice, will celebrate 60 years since their first gig, and no doubt give a nod to their legendary Hyde Park show in 1969. And though she did appear at the London Palladium back in November, these two gigs at BST will be Adele’s first large-scale gigs in the capital since she played at Wembley Stadium in the summer of 2017.

Are there any tickets left?

Yes, but not for Adele. They all sold out in minutes when they went on sale last October, and there’s no official resale. Organisers say that any tickets bought off third-party resale sites won’t be valid for entry — you have been warned.

General sale for Elton John has sold out, but there are still some tickets going via Ticketmaster’s In Demand service, which prices the remaining tickets on supply and demand levels. Basically, they’re going to get more expensive as more get sold, so get in early. Prices are currency hovering around the £90 mark.

General sale tickets remain for all of the other shows, with the Rolling Stones and Eagles costing £95, while Pearl Jam is on sale for £78, and Duran Duran is priced at £68. Various VIP options are also available for those who want to really splash out.
