Bruno Mars, Michael Bublé and The Cure will be headlining at Hyde Park for Barclaycard’s annual British Summer Time festival.

The sixth edition of Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park will see an expected 600,000 festival-goers enjoy six days of live music from some of the world’s biggest acts.

The concerts are being held across two weekends – 6 to 8 July and 13 to 15 July – on three separate stages in the central London park, with a week of free summer activities in between, including outdoor movie nights, live Wimbledon tennis screenings, street food stalls and pop-up bars.
