Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park is once again announcing the line up of the summer, with some of the finest rock royalty in the world set to play the Great Oak Stage.
Our third headliner for 2017 is Kings Of Leon! The Grammy Award-winning band will headline on July 6th, showcasing tracks from their recent # 1 album ‘WALLS’ alongside their huge cannon of hits from right across their 7 albums.
Kings Of Leon’s Nathan said: “It’s always a pleasure to party with our amazing fans at Hyde Park.”
Since their debut in 2003, Kings Of Leon have sold over 18 million albums and 24 million singles worldwide. WALLS is their sixth consecutive album to have reached #1 in the UK and they have won four Grammy Awards, three NME Awards and two Brit Awards.
Joining Kings Of Leon are fellow US rock legends Pixies. One of the most influential bands of all time they released their latest album Head Carrier earlier this year and to celebrate, they’re playing their biggest London show to date.
Also playing on 6th July, is the inimitable Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats who will return to the UK!
Off the back of their new album Painting of a Panic Attack, Scottish indie rockers Frightened Rabbit are back on the scene for a highly anticipated international tour, beginning in April. The band’s appearance at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park will be the only London show of the tour – it’s not one to be missed!
Hailing from Los Angeles, Local Natives have been championed on the indie scene both sides of the Atlantic since their debut album Gorilla Manor landed in 2009. Their new single I Saw You Close Your Eyes was released this March and can only be heard online when the listeners actually close their eyes (www.closeyoureyes.net). With the excitement of the new single, plus more material around the corner, Hyde Park should prepare for a few surprises in the band’s July performance.
With their latest album All These Countless Nights earning widespread critical acclaim, crowds can also look forward to alt-rock band Deaf Havana tearing up the stage with hits new and old.
Also on the bill is BBC Sound Of 2017 runner up, Tom Grennan. The 20 year-old singer first found fame as the guest vocalist on Chase & Status's track When It All Goes Wrong late last year. Now Grennan is undoubtedly part of the new wave of British artists coming through this year, with his raw, emotive vocals and soulful lyrics – as heard on his debut EP Something In The Water.
Brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey make The Cactus Blossoms. The duo has become known for their distinctive Southern charm, similar to the headliners themselves. And like Kings of Leon, the band will no doubt enchant the crowds of Hyde Park this summer.
Bringing a taste of their dreamy pop to the UK, Californian act Saint Motel are sure to captivate the crowd in London, having finished up a US tour upon release of their second album saintmotelivision in October last year.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts trio Highly Suspect join the line-up after recent sold out shows including London's Koko in March!
Joining the line up is the seriously talented singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker. With his unique blend of boogie, soul and blues, he has been met with glowing reviews from critics since his musical debut in 2013. Booker has appeared on Conan, Late Night with David Letterman and Later with Jools Holland, establishing a loyal international fan base.
19-year-old Canadian artist Billy Raffoul, probably best known for his heartrending track I Can’t Love You Anymore, garnered significant attention after his live performance at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival; so the crowds in London can expect to be wowed once again on 6th July!
