Bon Jovi Revealed As First Headliner For New Festival: Barclaycard British Summer Time

Bon Jovi have just been named as the first headliner for 'Barclaycard British Summer Time', a brand new festival for 2013, to be held in London's Hyde Park. More high profile acts are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

ImageCreated by AEG and The Royal Parks, Barclaycard British Summer Time will give music fans throughout the capital the chance to see many of their favourite headlining and supporting music artists play over back-to-back weekends from 28th June to 7th July 2013.

A totally unique event for London, each live music-packed weekend will be linked by a midweek programme of diverse entertainment. From Monday to Thursday, the entire Barclaycard British Summer Time site, except for the main stage, will give visitors the chance to get involved with smaller, more intimate events offering film, music, literature, sport.

Jim King of AEG Live and Event Director said: "After a great deal of planning and hard work, we are so proud to announce what will no doubt be an incredible event for London. Barclaycard British Summer Time takes everything we have learned indoors at our other venues - in creating the amazing experiences at The O2 - and shares it within the world’s greatest outdoor venue, Hyde Park. We literally started with a blank canvas and in Barclaycard British Summer Time, we have created what we believe to be the ultimate in Summer events - fantastic music, great food, drinks, farmers markets, theatre, film - and much more incredible entertainment across a full 10 days. The list is endless!”

Within the Barclaycard British Summer Time site there will be four themed zones, each with its own specially designed installations and entertainment, high quality restaurants, bespoke salons, pubs, cocktail bars, cafes, bistros and independent food stalls. AEG Live has made a multi-million pound investment and a five-year commitment to ensure this is a truly unforgettable experience and the attention to detail in the design of these areas stops at nothing short of excellence.

James Russell, The Royal Parks, Head of Events said: “This is a new era for entertainment in Hyde Park. Hyde Park has such a wonderful heritage in hosting world class concerts in the heart of London, dating back to 1969. Today, we are looking forward, and along with AEG Live, we are very excited to be bringing the Barclaycard British Summer Time event to this iconic location that is recognised around the world.”

Bon Jovi will bring their huge stadium rock anthems to their set, as well as new songs from their forthcoming 'What About Now?' album, released March 25th. This new summer show is part of their Because We Can world tour.
