Celine Dion headlines British Summer Time Festival on Friday 5 July
Grammy-winner Celine Dion will kick off the festival on Friday 5 July, fresh from her second Vegas residency. With the kind of soaring vocals that can easily fill the whole park, and a back catalogue full of hits, Dion is up there with the titans of modern music.
Daniel Mathieson, head of experiential marketing and partnerships for Barclaycard, said: 'We are incredibly proud to be hosting such a huge icon this year...We are looking forward to seeing her bring some of her biggest hits to Hyde Park and it remains to be seen whether there will be a dry eye in the house after such a titanic performance.' Support acts for the Friday 5 July concert are still to be announced, but expect a line-up that compliments Dion's huge voice.
Florence and the Machine headline British Summer Time Festival on Saturday 13 July
The second weekend of British Summer Time starts with sing-along indie folk from Florence and The Machine. Singer song-writer Florence Welch is a festival favourite who combines evocative lyrics with and ethereal energy on stage. She is supported by American rock band The National and experimental Swedish singer Lykke Li.
Finishing off the festival on Sunday 14 July, Robbie Williams will headline on the Great Oak Stage. In what will be his only open-air UK performance of the year, Williams will perform hits from all periods of his 21-year solo career, as well as new songs from his upcoming album 'Under The Radar Volume 3'. The former Take That singer turner solo sensation and X Factor judge is known as much for his cheek and charm as hit songs such as 'Angels' and 'Let Me Entertain You'. As James King, senior vice president of AEG Presents, comments: 'Robbie works a crowd like no one else'.

In between the two weekends of concerts BST’s Open House week will
return. This week involves free entry to various events in the park, from live
screenings of Wimbledon to cabaret and circus performances. Pop-up bars and
street food stalls will be on hand to provide refreshments if you have worked
up a sweat in an artistic workshop, or if you just fancy something a little different
in your lunchbreak.
Booking for Robbie Williams and Florence and the Machine is already open. Tickets for the Celine Dion show will be available in a Barclay Card pre-sale on January 23, with general sale tickets available on January 29.
