BST Hyde Park festival announces headliners for 2019
Organisers of British Summer Time Hyde Park promise ‘historic night’ as they reveal two music heavyweights will share headline slot
As 2018 draws to a close, next year’s festivals are already on the lips of music fans everywhere. British Summer Time Hyde Park has added to the excitement by announcing Bob Dylan and Neil Young as joint headliners for 2019. The show will take place on Friday 12 July, with plenty more acts to be revealed in the coming months.
Bob Dylan is a 10 times Grammy Award winner, including Album Of The Year for 1997’s Time Out Of Mind. While Neil Young’s classic albums include Harvest, After The Gold Rush and On The Beach. Both artists are still attracting fans with new music. Both artists released albums in 2017 to critical acclaim, with Young’s Hitchicker peaking at No 6 in the UK album chart.
Returning for its eighth year, the event has solidified its reputation for booking the world’s biggest artists. Last year saw The Rolling Stones grace Hyde Park, once again. Carole King performed her classic album Tapestry in full, while there were comebacks for The Strokes and The Libertines, with The Cure, Roger Waters, Bruno Mars and Eric Clapton making up the numbers.
“Barclaycard presents British Summer Time has always tried to deliver the greatest possible one-off live experiences for music fans in London,” said James King, AEG Presents Senior Vice President. “Being able to bring together two of the biggest cultural icons together for this historic day of music counts as possibly the biggest event we have ever delivered in Hyde Park.”
Tickets are on sale now with prices starting at £75 per person. For more information visit bst-hydepark.com
