Mumford and Sons have been announced as the latest headliner for next year’s Barclaycard British Summer Time.
Set to hit the stage on Friday 8th July at BST’s Hyde Park home, Mumford and Sons will be joined by Wolf Alice and Alabama Shakes on the bill, and follows last week’s announcement of British Summer Time’s first headliner, Take That.
Of their headline show, Mumford and Sons said, “Hyde Park for us: sacrificing hopes and dreams at the altar of Neil Young; being transported to another dimension by The National; supporting Arcade Fire (the best band in the world); playing alongside our mates The Vaccines; accidentally seeing Black Eyed Peas; wishing we were at Kylie. What a place. And this time we get to headline and pick a bill of sick artists to play with us. Alabama Shakes! Wolf Alice! Gentlewomen of the Road! We’re travelling all over at the moment, so having this massive gig to look forward to next Summer, right in the heart of our home city, is just awesome.”
**UPDATE** Mumford and Sons have also confirmed Mystery Jets, Nick Mulvey, Baaba Maal, Børns, The Very Best, South Africa’s Beatenberg and Baio (of Vampire Weekend) will join them at BST.
