More acts announced for Justin Bieber show!
The biggest pop star on the planet, Justin Bieber, is headlining the summer's hottest show at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park on Sunday 2nd July… and now even more superstar guests are being added to the list.
Joining the line up alongside EDM impresario Martin Garrix, unapologetic pop artist Tove Lo and Brit Award-nominated rising star Anne-Marie are: Naughty Boy, Jain, Mabel, Nina Nesbitt, Sheppard, Will Heard, James Hersey, Louis The Child, Anna of the North, Skinny Living, Dagny and Glowie.
For his Hyde Park debut, Justin Bieber is bringing back his Purpose World Tour, which concluded its UK leg last year with two massive sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena. This is the only chance to experience the hit-filled and complete stadium production at a festival in the UK this year!
Newly announced to join Justin is hit-making artist and ground-breaking producer, Naughty Boy - set to work his magic in front of thousands of music fans at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park. The platinum-selling British talent has worked with some of the biggest names on the planet, including Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran. He has racked up five Top 10 UK singles including the #1 smash ‘La La La’ featuring Sam Smith and #4 hit ‘Runnin’ (Lose It All)’ featuring Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin.
French pop sensation Jain is on the cusp of a global takeover – and there is no place better to catch this rising star than at her Hyde Park debut. Tipped by The Independent as One to Watch in 2017 and endorsed by tastemaker Jaden Smith, this compelling performer has already clocked up a #1 hit in her native France with ‘Come’, accompanied by no less than 54 million views on YouTube. Jain has earned rave reviews on tour with Christine and The Queens, and now it’s London’s turn for a treat.
Mabel has music in her blood, as the daughter of Nineties singer Neneh Cherry, the pioneer of early R'n'B, and Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey. After breaking out with her debut track ‘Know Me Better’ in 2015, Mabel has gone strength to strength. Last year, she was shortlisted as BBC Sound Of 2016, and supported Years & Years on their UK tour. 2017 marks another big year for the R’n’B singer, she is set to release her newest EP ‘Bedroom’ this May and we are ecstatic that Hyde Park will be one of the first to witness it live.
Edinburgh born, singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt’s infectious pop hits include ‘Stay Awake’ and more recently ‘Chewing Gum’, taken from her 2016 EP ‘Modern Love’. After a brief hiatus and new signing, Nina is set to return this year with highly anticipated new music that sees her leave behind her teenage years and embark on something a lot deeper than before.
Making a welcome return to Hyde Park since their 2015 appearance is Australian band, Sheppard. The six-piece indy group issued the single "Geronimo" in 2014; it shot to #1 at home while also gaining traction in the UK and beyond. This year, the band also make a return to supporting Justin Bieber, they played during the Australian leg of his Purpose World Tour back in March.
Londoner Will Heard burst onto the scene back in 2013 when he featured on Klangkarussell's acclaimed single ‘Sonnentanz (Sun Don’t Shine)’. He went on to release his debut EP ‘Trust’ in February this year, with newer dance hits including ‘I Better Love You’. Prepare yourselves for a party, Hyde Park!
Adding to the range of international talent on this line up is Vienna-born, indie-electro artist James Hersey. The singer-songwriter has racked up over 75 million Spotify streams for his break out single ‘Miss You’ and his latest single ‘Everyone’s Talking’ is following hot on its heels.
Boasting over 50 million Spotify streams, Chicago duo Louis the Child are also heading to Hyde Park this summer. Best known for their electronic festival-ready anthems, including ‘It's Strange,’ Icona Pop collaboration ‘Weekend,’ and ‘Fire’, there’s no doubt the pair will be hyping up the crowds ready for Bieber this July.
Hailing from Norway, Scandinavian pop sensation Anna of the North has already gained critical acclaim from the likes of tastemaker i-D. The band, made up of Anna Lotterud and her producer Brady, will be bringing their all to Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park – and we cannot wait.
With their soulful vocals and four-way harmonies, Skinny Living already have people talking with the release of their most recent EP ‘III”, so they’re sure to grab the attending of Hyde Park this summer.
In late 2015, Dagny delivered an energetic and enigmatic anthem with “Backbeat.” Following its world premiere on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, the Norway born and London-based songstress amassed over 9 million streams on Spotify. With new music expected for the Norweigan star, Dagny has a big year ahead and now Hyde Park is a part of it!
Icelandic newcomer Glowie garnered some serious attention last year with catchy tunes “No Lie” and “One Day”, and her reputation for colourful, high energy live performances has secured her place as one of the hottest acts to catch this summer!
