About Hampton Court Palace Festival

Now in its 28th year, Hampton Court Palace Festival 2020 is a series of truly unique open-air concerts. Artists perform in a 3,000-seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s magnificent Tudor Palace.

Organisers have most recently announced that Lighthouse Family, one of the biggest British bands of the mid-late '90s, will be taking to the stage at this year's festival for their first time there. Originally hailing from Newcastle, the acclaimed duo (vocalist Tunde Baiyewu and keyboardist Paul Tucker) began their musical career almost 25 years ago. Audiences can expect a night of classic songs spreading love and connection. 

In addition, music legend and "The Voice" coach Tom Jones will sing hits from his unrivalled repertoire  – including timeless classics Delilah, What’s New Pussycat and It’s Not Unusual – on 9 and 10 June.

Global sensation Björn Again will return to the Hampton Court stage with a sensational show of much-loved ABBA songs and '70s fun on 13 June. 

Already announced for Hampton Court Palace Festival is Bastille. Following their critically acclaimed 2018 tour, ReOrchestrated, they will appear on 3 – 4 June. The Brit Award nominees will reprise a selection of songs from their last three albums while re-imagining, deconstructing and rearranging the songs with a 20-piece orchestra and choir.

Rick Astley takes to the the stage on 5 June. The Never Gonna Give You Up boasts a career spanning over 30 years and has sold more than 40 million records worldwide. 

Two big dates at Hampton Court Palace Festival have also been announced for the one and only Lionel Richie on 11 and 16 June. Audiences are never disappointed with Richie's exuberant live shows which deliver a mix material from his memorable early days with the Commodores to his '80s piano ballads and more recent '00s pop material.

Dido will perform on 15 June. Known for singles like Here With Me and Thank You, this will be the first time the award-winning singer-songwriter has appeared at Hampton Court Palace Festival.

George Benson is all set to appear on 19 June. With a new album out, Walking to New Orleans, the singer-guitarist is getting back to Americana basics. His 45th album also pays tribute to piano-pounding Crescent City hit machine Fats Domino and the original rock guitar hero Chuck Berry. Don't miss your chance to hear Benson play his new material along with classics live at Hampton Court Palace Festival.

Closing the fetstival on Saturday 20 June is none othe than the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, presenting Midsmmer Music at the Palace. Conducted by Benjamin Pope, the Concert Orchestra will be performing scores from the mainstream masters of classical music including Brahms Hungarian Dance, Shostakovich Jazz Suite – Waltz no 2 and excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
