Bon Jovi to headline new London Hyde Park music event.
Today saw the announcement of Barclaycard British Summer Time - a ground-breaking new event for 2013, to be held at the one of the worlds top outdoor venues - Hyde Park. The event will take place on 5 July.
Barclaycard British Summer Time will give music fans throughout the capital the chance to see many of their favourite headlining and supporting artists play over back to back weekends.
Bon Jovi have been named as the first headline music act for the event, although it is believed that other world-class music acts will be announced in the coming weeks.
The live music weekends will be linked by a midweek programme, which will encompass film, music, literature, sport and family activity days.
Event Director Jim King stated:
"After a great deal of planning and hard work, we are so proud to announce what will no doubt be an incredible event for London. Barclaycard British Summer Time takes everything we have learned indoors at our other venues - in creating the amazing experiences at The O2 - and shares it within the world’s greatest outdoor venue, Hyde Park. We literally started with a blank canvas and in Barclaycard British Summer Time, we have created what we believe to be the ultimate in Summer events - fantastic music, great food, drinks, farmers markets, theatre, film - and much more incredible entertainment across a full 10 days. The list is endless!"
