One of London’s biggest concert series is making its return. 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, Bruce Springsteen, Blackpink, Adele, 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 now the 10-day event finally begins this weekend (June 28).

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 park takeover is spread across multiple weekends in summer. This year it’s taking place between June 28 – this Friday – and July 14. Gates will open at approximately 2pm on each of the days, with last entry at 8.30pm. The shows will finish by 10.30pm.

Where in Hyde Park will the concerts take place?

The gigs will be on the Parade Ground on the eastern side of Hyde Park – find it on the Royal Parks map.

There are a number of Underground stations all within walking distance, such as 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?

This year’s line-up boasts some huge names. Some days are structured like mini festivals, with bands playing during the day in the lead up to the headline slot in the evening.

The first show that was announced for example, which will take place on Sunday Jun 30, sees Kings of Leon on the same bill as The Vaccines and Paolo Nutini.

BST Hyde Park have already bagged an exclusive, with Robbie Williams playing his only UK festival here. Given that last year’s The XXV Tour looked back over his 25 years as a solo artist since leaving Take That, it seems likely that his Hyde Park stop could also focus on the greatest hits, think: Feel, Angels, Let Me Entertain You, and She’s The One.

Opera heavyweight Andrea Bocelli was the second confirmed act. The Italian tenor is celebrating 30 years in the game this year. Another UK exclusive, the show also will make Bocelli the first ever classical artist to headline the festival.

K-Pop boy band Stray Kids have also been confirmed as headliners. "This is our first time performing at a UK festival and it is such an honour to play in Hyde Park where so many legends have played before us. Come dance with us," said the eight-piece group.

Country-pop icon Shania Twain – best known for hits That Don’t Impress Me Much, Man! I Feel Like A Woman, and You’re Still the One – is also set to play Hyde Park, with Irish group The Corrs confirmed as the first special guests. “London – I’m coming back for you baby!!” she wrote in a social media post confirming the news. Twain will also be playing at Glastonbury this year, performing on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday June 30.

Fleetwood Mac legend and singer-songwriter icon Stevie Nicks will also headline her own show on July 12. “Anything that draws me back to London – and therefore to England – fills my heart with joy. And to be able to visit and make music… is always a dream come true…” she said as the gig was announced.

Aussie pop legend Kylie Minogue will headline on July 13. It’s her second time here; she originally played the festival 9 years ago. “My last appearance at this iconic event was in 2015 and it was a truly unforgettable experience,” she said. “So excited to see you all again!

The Grammy-winning SZA will also play, as will K-pop band Stray Kids and American country star Morgan Wallen. Opening the festival on Friday is a special classical music event hosted by Myleene Klasse, performed by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, titled All Things Orchestral.
