It always promises to be a fantastic time and next year looks to be no different as news that Mumford & Sons are to take the stage at 2016’s Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park in London on Friday July 8th.
Easily one of the biggest draws in the world, Mumford & Sons will bring its Grammy and Brit Award winning sound to the UK’s capital following the band’s debut visits to South Africa and South America in early 2016. The band has been named as the second headline act along with pop superstars Take That who were previously announced to perform earlier this month (November).
Hyde Park’s Great Oak Stage has seen some of the music world’s top names including, Neil Young and the Rolling Stones. Performances at this stage are always met with huge and enthusiastic crowds.
In a statement from Geraldine Wilson, Amazon Tickets General Manager: “Mumford & Sons continue to go from strength to strength on the international stage. We are so pleased the guys will be returning home to London following their mammoth tour, to headline Barclaycard presents British Summer Time next summer.”
Mumford & Sons stated: “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.”
The list of bands for the concert has started to grow, and with American roots inspired rock band Alabama Shakes and Mercury Prize nominees Wolf Alice also added to the lineup, this is shaping up to be one hell of a gig.
