Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park once again for 2016 and it boasts another stellar line up — good luck picking which one to go to! Massive Attack open the festival on the 1st of July with support from Mercury award winning Young Fathers as well as the iconic Patti Smith and festival favourites Warpaint. The following day on the 2nd of July, Florence and the Machine headline with support from critically acclaimed Kendrick Lamar and arguably the best DJ in the world right now, Jamie XX. On Sunday 3rd July Carole King is to play her iconic album Tapestry in full with support from the brilliant Don Henley.
The following weekend kicks off on Friday 8th July with festival veterans Mumford and Sons who will have an amazing supporting line up including Alabama Shakes, Wolf Alice, Nick Mulvey, and Mystery Jets. The following day is one for all you pop fans, as Take That will headline with support from Olly Murs, Ella Eyre, Jamie Lawson, and Nathan Sykes (of The Wanted). Finally, on the 10th of July, musical legend Stevie Wonder will take to the stage with support from the fantastic Pharrell Williams.
