Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park: Arcade Fire + Jake Bugg + Wild Beasts + Band of Skulls + Future Islands
Arcade Fire will kick off Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park with a headline slot on Thursday 3rd July.
As one of the best live acts in the world, the million-selling Grammy-winning Arcade Fire’s latest album Reflektor topped the charts in the UK and North America and reached #1 in the iTunes charts in 40 countries.
Arcade Fire are renowned for creating an immersive live experience with the help of their audience. Costume and formal attire is optional and encouraged at every show. The carnival atmosphere is heightened by Haitian percussionists and a string section, while special guest appearances along the Reflektor tour have included Debbie Harry and Beck - and filming of new video ‘We Exist’ saw Spiderman Andrew Garfield join the band onstage at the Coachella Festival in California.
Joining Arcade Fire at Hyde Park will be Jake Bugg and Future Islands
Montreal's Grammy award winning indie-rock collective have grown from critically acclaimed cult heroes to stadium sensations across their three albums, with 2011's 'The Suburbs' picking up 'Best International Album' award at the Brits. Their now established baroque sound, embracing violin, cello, accordion, etc. looks set to take a change of direction with new material being produced by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy. Compared to Talking Heads meets David Bowie, their new material has been described as sounding "unexpectedly dance-oriented, due to the upbeat rhythms of conga drums and electronic flourishes alongside their most poppy sounds."
Arcade Fire tour dates
Young singer/songwriter Jake Bugg stands out as one of the most exciting new UK acts to emerge from 2012, managing to effortlessly straddle the gap between authenticity and mainstream appeal.
Jake Bugg tour dates
Four piece pop group, Wild Beasts are a mix of many different styles with songs that sound as different from each other as possible, with some almost operatic style vocals. They dare to be different, not wanting to be pigeon holed or conform to any norms, which is reflected in their unusual choice of musical arrangements, vocal styles and lyrics.
Wild Beasts tour dates
The London-based trio formerly known as Fleeing New York before changing their name in 2008. Band of Skulls are a garage rock sensation originally formed by three college friends: Russell Marsden, Emma Richardson and Matt Hayward. In late 2009 the track 'I Know What I Am' from their debut album 'Baby Darling Doll Face Honey' was chosen as iTunes' Single Of The Week.
Band of Skulls tour dates
Synthpop threee-piece based in Baltimore, Maryland, signed to 4AD. From their early humble lo-fi electro-punk recordings, the band have since progressed to four-on-the-floor electro with a New Wave beat. After three low-key albums, they have risen from relative obscurity to household names, thanks to a high-profile appearance on America's prestigious David Letterman TV show with lead singer Sam Herring’s unstoppable performance.
