Celine Dion - 5 July 2019

The festival kicks off on Friday 5 July with Canadian superstar Celine Dion. Celine has sold 240 million records worldwide and is renowned for her amazing vocal range and incredible live shows. The performance, her only European show this year, promises to be one of the most memorable to grace the Hyde Park’s Great Oak Stage, and will come just a month after the star’s Las Vegas residency. Celine Dion will be supported by entertainment superstar, Josh Groban and former Steps member, Claire Richards.

Stevie Wonder - 6 July 2019

Catch two absolute legends of soul and pop on 6 July when the singer, songwriter, musician and producer brings his Stevie Wonder Song Party: A Celebration of Life, Love & Music to BST, with special guest Lionel Richie.

Since achieving his first number one record aged 12, Stevie Wonder has gone on to become one of the most celebrated figures in music, winning 25 Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.

Barbra Streisand – 7 July 2019

Possibly the most iconic star of the last half-century, Barbara Streisand headlines on 7 July. This unique singer, movie star, activist and theatre performer is known for hits, including Woman In Love, The Way We Were, Rain On My Parade and many more.

She is supported by Bryan Ferry; one of Britain’s most influential and distinctive artists, both as frontman of Roxy Music and in his successful solo career.

Also appearing is Kris Kristofferson, the country musician, songwriter and award-winning actor who starred with Streisand in the 1976 version of A Star is Born.

Florence + The Machine - 13 July 2019

It’s been a remarkable year for Florence + The Machine, releasing their fourth album High as Hope and completing a critically-acclaimed stadium tour. Florence returns to her hometown for this celebratory show with support from American indie institution, The National, plus acts including, Blood Orange, Aldous Harding and Marlon Williams. With a voice that’s a force of nature and huge charisma to boot, Florence Welch puts on an electric show.

Robbie Williams – 14 July 2019

Closing the festival is national treasure, Robbie Williams. Robbie burst on to the UK music scene as the youngest member of Take That in 1990, before launching a phenomenal solo career in 1995, and has been at the top of his game ever since.

He will headline Hyde Park’s Great Oak Stage on Sunday 14 July 2019 in his only UK open-air show this year.

A great line up of support acts includes the Black Eyed Peas, Keane, Texas and Feeder with more to be announced.

Bob Dylan and Neil Young – 12 July

Also at Hyde Park, but not under the BST banner, there’s a rare chance to see Bob Dylan perform live on 12 July 2019.

Bob Dylan is widely regarded as the most influential artist of all time. He will appear with special guest Neil Young, known for classic albums including After The Goldrush. Support acts are British folk star Laura Marling, American singer-songwriter Cat Power and 2019 Brit Awards critics' choice winner, Sam Fender.

Although happening during the period of the festival, the show is a stand-alone concert, not part of BST.
