BST Hyde Park 2024
BST has confirmed its return to London’s Hyde Park for another summer of massive names in the summer sun. The first headliner announced for 2024 is the beloved Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli.
It’s time to get excited for summer 2024 as American Express presents BST Hyde Park proudly announces that international superstar Andrea Bocelli will headline London’s best festival on Friday 5 July, the first classical artist to headline in BST Hyde Park’s history, and a
2024 UK exclusive.
BST (or British Summer Time) made its debut appearance on the London festival scene in 2013 with two weekends of live music in Hyde Park. Every summer since, the festival has attracted huge international names to its Great Oak stage, with a wide array of acts scattered across smaller stages and even a huge fan zone for England’s World Cup semi-final in 2018.
Over the years, an eclectic mix of massive names have graced the festival, including The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, The Strokes, Kylie, Carole King, Bon Jovi, Elton John, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Blur, Florence + The Machine, Céline Dion, Paul Simon, The Killers, Bruce Springsteen and Green Day. While the 2020 and 2021 BSTs were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival returned in 2022 with The Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam, Adele, Duran Duran and Elton John headlining.
In November 2023, BST announced its first headliner of 2024, Andrea Bocelli.
