About American Express Presents BST Hyde Park

American Express presents BST Hyde Park have announced another mammoth headliner for 2020, with Kendrick Lamar set to appear on Sunday 5 July.

The American songwriter, producer, poet and musician is a multiple Grammy Award winner and hip hop royalty. Lamar will close out the first weekend of the prestigious London festival. He'll also be joined by Mercury Prize-winning artist James Blake and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard. 

Previously announced for American Express presents BST Hyde Park is Taylor Swift who will headline the London stage on Saturday 11 July. 

Having released her latest album, Lover, to critival and commercial success, Taylor is the hottest artist on the planet. As her fourth UK No. 1 she now has the accolade of being the most chart-topping female artists of the decade. She is retracing her footsteps from 2015, where she performed at BST Hyde Park while riding high on the success of the album 1989. She is sure to live up to the live extravaganza where she played to 65,000 fans. 

She is joined by the previously announced US rock titans Pearl Jam, who are set to play the festival on Friday 10 July 2020. They will be supported by Pixies and White Reaper, with more to be announced. 

Pearl Jam will take to Hyde Park in a UK exclusive live performance for 2020. They are the second act to be announced and join the ultimate girl band Little Mix who will headline BST Hyde Park on Saturday 4 July 2020.

Joining Pearl Jam are fellow US rock legends, Pixies. Formed in 1986, Pixies have inspired a wealth of bands since including Nirvana, Radiohead, two past BST Hyde Park headliners The Strokes and Blur – and even a future one, Pearl Jam. Renowned for their incredible live shows, fronted by the mesmeric Black Francis, guitarist JoeySantiago, David Lowering and newest member Paz Lenchantin, this your chance to hear Debaser, Gigantic, Here Comes Your Man and Where Is My Mind? in all their glory plus newer songs from their 2019 album Beneath the Eyrie.

Hailing from Louisville in Kentucky, White Reaper will bring the rock’n’roll to Hyde Park. The early stage of their existence sprinkled bubblegum hooks and psychedelic weirdness over their short, energetic garage punk songs. Formed by singer/guitarist Tony Esposito and twin brothers Nick and Sam Wilkerson while they were still teens, the group released its first single in 2013 Conspirator/The Cut. Their latest album You Deserve Love was released last month.

On Saturday 4 July, Little Mix are headlining American Express presents BST Hyde Park. In 2014, Little Mix supported the legendary Tom Jones... but now they have the headliner status they deserve.

Over the past eight years, Little Mix have achieved the extraordinary. Formed as a group on X Factor in 2011 and winning the series, the foursome – Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall – have become global stars.

The news comes after the group’s triumphant European tour LM5: The Tour which included five nights at The O2 in London. Their latest album LM5 was released in 2018 and includes hit single Woman Like Me, and standout tracks Strip and Wasabi.

Little Mix will be joined by very special guest Rita Ora as well as support from Kesha, Zara Larsson and more!

American Express presents BST Hyde Park 2020 is back for its eighth edition. Expect another year of unique shows and unforgettable music moments, as it has become THE place to be in the London summer.
