Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park add a host of special guests to the bill for Florence + The Machine’s homecoming on Saturday July 13th; who headline alongside festival favourites The National.
Joining these two headline acts, as well as the already announced Lykke Li, Khruangbin and Nadine Shah, are Blood Orange, Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams, Let’s Eat Grandma and Goat Girl.
Blood Orange is the R&B and electronic-inspired project of musician, producer and regular Florence collaborator, Dev Hynes. Hynes makes his exciting return to BST Hyde Park after he last supported his friends Florence + The Machine back in 2016.
New Zealand’s folk singer-songwriter Aldous Harding is also on the tempting line up. Harding is set to release her third album Designer this April, and the current single ‘The Barrel’ perfectly highlights why she is held in such high regard.
Another New Zealander making up the bill is Marlon Williams. This year, he’s been touring Australia alongside Florence + The Machine, and the pair even performed a duet of his track, ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’.
Let’s Eat Grandma are Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, a British duo hailing from Norwich who first met in primary school aged 5 and became bandmates at the tender age of 13. Now is the perfect time to catch them in action.
Goat Girl is an all-female post-punk band who chronicle the woes of modern British with undimmed ferocity. The quartet, who go by the pseudonyms L.E.D., Clottie Cream, Naima Jelly and Rosy Bones, released their self-titled debut last year. They are one of the artists sprung from a burgeoning, close-knit south London scene, similar to Florence Welch herself.
Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019 is back for another year of shows. Headliners for 2019 are: Celine Dion (5th July), Barbra Streisand (7th July), and Florence + The Machine / The National (13th July) and Robbie Williams (14th July).
