This 2016, Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park hits its fourth year, firmly established as the essential London summer event. Already announced for July 9th as headliners are Take That, bringing their full live experience to Hyde Park for the very first time. And on July 8th, Mumford & Sons will headline with special guests Alabama Shakes and Wolf Alice

On the 2nd of July, Jamie XX and Blood Orange will join a Grammy winning Kendrick Lamar alongside BRIT Award winner and platinum selling Florence And The Machine on the main stage of BST. This will be Kendrick Lamar’s only UK festival appearance. You can check out the announcement video below.

 

Teasing even further, amongst the new additions you’ll find BRIT Award-winning trip-folk star Cat Power, whose spellbinding mix of folk, country and blues you won’t want to miss, as Hyde Park will be the only place to catch Cat this summer in London.

She’ll be joined on the main stage by Norwegian DJ and producer Todd Terje and The Olsens. Rolling Stone magazine has placed Todd amongst their “25 DJs That Rule The Earth” , scoring an impressive no.17 slot. He’s bound to get crowds grooving in Hyde Park, especially since his live band The Olsens will be joining him. Expect a musical whirlwind that will bring to life hits from Todd’s debut album It’s About Time.

Also, Kamasi Washington, a genius of the tenor sax, is set to bring jazz funk fun to the afternoon. He’s definitely a force to be reckoned with, playing alongside household names such as Snoop Dogg, Chaka Khan and Flying Lotus.

Crowd

This year’s line-up has gotten everyone at FAULT HQ bouncing off the walls. We can’t help but wonder if Alex Turner is going to make another cameo appearance and dance like nobody is watching despite everyone will be watching – definitely a highlight to The Stroke’s first UK gig in years.

Avoid disappointment and grab yourself early tickets, as this year’s festival promises to be another memorable experience.
