British Summer Time is bringing so many big names to London this summer that it needed two weekends to do it. It’s a diverse festival, one that’s hosted Black Sabbath, Megadeath, and Neil Young in the same year. 2015 saw Blur perform one weekend and Taylor Swift the next. Not one to disappoint, British Summer Time is bringing the best of folk and soul to Hyde Park this year. Starting things off with Massive Attack on Friday 1st July, followed by the incredible Florence + The Machine on the Saturday 2nd. Carole King will be performing in London for the first time in 30 years; her historic album, ‘Tapestry’ has never been performed in its entirety before now. And that’s just the first weekend. Friday 8th sees London-folk heroes Mumford & Sons headlining in their only UK appearance of the year. Their legendary stage presence alone makes British Summer Time an unmissable event! Take That take over on Saturday, and on Sunday there’s another UK exclusive in the phenomenal Stevie Wonder who will be performing his hugely acclaimed album, ‘Songs in The Key of Life’. Tickets range from £80-£100 – a bargain if you can bring yourself to pick between so many giants of their own genres. There’s also midweek events for free, though these are yet to be announced. Last year these included a vintage village green with its own pub and farmers’ market, as well as an outdoor pool bar.
Following on from last year’s hugely popular Street Food Market, British Summer Time promises an ‘even greater range of taste-bud teasing artisan traders’ to make this event more than just a music festival. All food and drink on offer is hand-crafted, adding an indie atmosphere to what is clearly a prestige event.
With Megabus, you don’t even have to worry about arriving on time. Victoria Coach Station is less than a 10-minute drive away, so you can beat the sizeable queues to any pop-up bistros and BBQs before the unmissable acts begin.
