British Summer Time is an outdoor concert series that takes place in Hyde Park, London.
The event is set up by AEG Live, and since its formation in 2013, has seen some of the world’s best pop, rock, dance, indie, and soul acts heading to the English capital for performances, over 10 days, under the evening heat of summer.

The following year the event was headlined by Arcade Fire, Black Sabbath, The Libertines, McBusted, Tim Minchin, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and Tom Jones. In 2015 The Strokes, Blur, Kylie, The Who and Taylor Swift headlined the concert series and in 2016 Take That, Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams and Massive Attack took to the stage. Last year, Justin Bieber, The Killers, Green Day, Tom Petty, Phil Collins and Kings of Leon took to the stage.

We went in 2013 and watched Jennifer Lopez, Lionel Ritchie and lots more. The atmosphere was electric and such a wonderful, friendly ambience.It really is a must. There was so much to do for all the family with lots of places for eating snd drinking. Luckily we had glorious weather the day we went. A safe and friendly well organised event.
