Fresh from the latest hit series of the BBC’s The Voice, the incredible Sir Tom Jones headlines. Tom is one of Britain’s greatest ever vocalists, with an illustrious history, stretching way back to the 1960s.
Sir Tom Jones:
"I love playing in Hyde Park, it's such a beautiful place and so many of the greats have played there. There is a real sense of musical history and a fantastic atmosphere that comes with playing in the middle of a great London park on a wonderful summer evening."
This summer, Boyzone return to the stage to perform their biggest hits. With 20 UK top 40 singles, 6 UK Number 1s and 5 Number 1 albums, along with 4 Brit Awards and an Ivor Novello for Best Contemporary Song, Ronan, Mikey, Shane and Keith are one of Ireland’s most successful exports and best-loved bands.
“There's no bigger gig than Hyde Park and no better day out than playing British Summer Time alongside Sir Tom Jones.”
Little Mix are the biggest girl band in the world right now and take to the Great Oak Stage after dominating the pop charts since winning X Factor in 2011; the first group ever to win the show. They have gone on to bag 2 UK Number 1 singles with ‘Cannonball’ and ‘Wings’ and sell 4 million singles worldwide.
Jesy, Perrie, Jade and Leigh-Anne have been in the US recording their new album and are ecstatic to be returning to the UK to play such a large crowd in historic surroundings.
“Wow, Hyde Park – so many amazing artists have played there and to be on a line up with Sir Tom Jones is a true honour. We can’t wait to see all The Mixers in the summer sun. And it’s Perrie’s 21st birthday a few days before, so we will be celebrating in style.”
10cc seemingly appeared out of nowhere in 1972 with their eponymous debut album. They made an immediate impact, with a sound that was both commercial and substantial. Not only did they deliver a string of enormous hits, they won critical credibility everywhere they went, with songs such as ‘I’m Not In Love’, ‘Dreadlock Holiday’ and ‘Robber Bullets’ that have stood the test of time.
And The Bootleg Beatles, the most famous tribute act in the world, will spark a mass sing-a-long of the Fab Four’s greatest hits.
