Massive Attack to headline Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2016

Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park has recently announced that Massive Attack will headline the festival in London on July 1st. They join a glittering array of previously announced headliners, including Florence & The Machine (July 2nd), Take That (July 9th) and Stevie Wonder (July 10th).

The legendary Bristol duo are joined on the bill by Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers, iconic punk songstress Patti Smith, as well as further transatlantic support from TV On The Radio, Warpaint and Ghostpoet.

The duo have promised to bring a new and provocative audio-visual live show to Hyde Park, which has been designed by Robert del Naja and regular collaborators United Visual Artists. This will be the largest show Massive Attack have performed since the release of their recent EP, Ritual Spirit, and is being staged in support of medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres.

Tickets have been on sale since March 11th, and are priced from £59.50 for General Admission to £149.50 for VIP packages.

Tickets are available to purchase from the BST website.
