Florence and the Machine headline British Summer Time Festival on Saturday 13 July
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'.

The supporting acts on Saturday 14 July are similarly uplifting, with Black Eyed Peas getting everyone in on the feeling that 'tonight's gunna be a good night' and British rockers Keane having everyone singing along to 'Somewhere only we know'.
In between the two weekends of concerts, BST’s Open House week returns. There’s something to tempt all tastes: from free yoga and breathwork
hosted by lululemon to a live open air sound bath hosted by ethereal
rock band Sigur Rós. Get active with circus workshops or enjoy watching
the experts somersault through the air from terra firma. Interact with
street theatre performers wandering the grounds or settle down in front
of the big screen to watch the tennis streamed from Wimbledon, or a
feel-good film screening of your choosing: Spice World, Dirty Dancing and Grease! are among those showing. Pop-up bars and
street food stalls are on hand to provide refreshments.
Celine Dion headlines British Summer Time Festival on Friday 5 July
Grammy-winner Celine Dion kicked 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.
The weekend continued with Stevie Wonder, who was the latest musical sensation to join the all-star line-up of Barclaycard British Summer Time. Wonder, who to date has 32 number one singles and 25 Grammy Awards (not to mention a prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award) tucked under his belt, was joined by special guest: award-winning singer-songwriter Lionel Richie, who attributes his decision to pursue a career in the music industry to wanting to be like Wonder.
The first weekend finished with equally epic vocals courtesy of Barbara Streisand. With a glut of awards (2 Oscars, 10 Grammys, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, 5 Emmys, the Special Tony Award, 9 Golden Globes and more) and a huge back catalogue of hits, the 'Don't Rain on my Parade' singer, has an army of fans and knows how to put on a show.
