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 five 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. then moved into a more electro direction on fourth album 'Reflektor' with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy producing, while 2017's fifth album 'Everything Now' is perhaps their most eclectic release to date, taking in elements of Disco, Reggae, Country, Funk and Electro.

Jake Bugg's incredible ascent began in 2012 when his self-titled debut album entered the UK charts at number one (aged 18, making him the youngest British male artist ever to achieve this), going on to sell double platinum and get shortlisted for the UK Mercury Music Prize.

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 Southampton-based trio formerly known as Fleeing New York before changing their name in 2008. Band of Skulls are a garage rock sensation formed by three college friends: Russell Marsden (guitar and vocals), Emma Richardson (bass and vocals) and Matt Hayward (drums)

Future Islands believe in true love, you can tell that because their songs speak through our lives. It's as if their music has always been with us, soundtracking every great hope, dawning realization and broken promise. Every fond embrace, each leap of faith. Baltimore's most quixotic and emotionally involving trio have maintained an admirable level of skill and pace, never slowing down for the corners.
It's vocalist Samuel T. Herring, William Cashion (bass, guitars), and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming, guitars) who find themselves responsible. Their sound is at once beguiling and irresistible. It's one part melancholic, one part euphoric; full of animated bass lines, robust drum machines and questing keyboards, all set off by Sam's remarkably distinct, soaring vocal and now legendary dance moves.
