BBC Radio 2 Live In Hyde Park: Jeff Lynne's ELO + Blondie + Chrissie Hynde + Kacey Musgraves + Paloma Faith + Gregory Porter + Bellowhead
BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park returns for another 'Festival in a Day' with performances from some of the most current popular artists and Radio 2's best loved presenters.
Now established as one of the summer's musical highlights after the huge success of previous years, the unique concert sees Radio 2 once more take the station out of the studio and into Hyde Park on Sunday September 14th 2014.
Jeff Smith, Head of Music, Radio 2 and 6 Music, said:
"Another year and another stellar line-up come together for a day of fantastic music which showcases the range and diversity of music provided by Radio 2 - the nation's favourite radio station. And what better way to say goodbye to the summer than a music fuelled day out with friends and family?"
Formed in 1970, the music of the Electric Light Orchestra is still as popular as ever. Jeff Lynne’s ELO have always been known for their epic live shows and with a distinct style that seamlessly and innovatively blends rock, pop and classical, ELO has had twenty six UK Top 40 singles, making Lynne's sweeping productions some of the most recognisable music of the last forty years and helping sell over 50 million records worldwide.

Undeniably one of the most trailblazing and influential bands of our time, Blondie is pioneering frontwoman/songwriter Debbie Harry, guitarist/conceptual mastermind Chris Stein and powerhouse drummer Clem Burke, along with now long standing band mates bassist Leigh Foxx, guitarist Tommy Kessler and keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen.
For the last four decades, Blondie has become and still remains a true global icon; one whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art. From an irreverent Lower East Side punk outfit to bona fide international ambassadors of New York cool, Blondie will forever be synonymous with that punk spirit that lives somewhere in all of us.
Their chart- topping success, fearless spirit and rare longevity led to an induction into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 and more than 40 million albums sold worldwide to date.

The voice of pop icons The Pretenders, Chrissie Hynde's uncompromising attitude to putting good music first makes her solo performances at least as powerful as those with her band.
Chrissie Hynde tour dates
A Texas native, country singer / songwriter Kacey began singing publicly at 8 and wrote her first song at age 9. To date, that talent has produced cuts for multi-platinum artists such as Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert.
Kacey's musical influences range from Loretta Lynn and John Prine to bands like Cake and The Beach Boys. Kacey was honoured to bridge wide musical gaps throughout 2014 as she toured with Lady Antebellum, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss & Union Station, and Katy Perry on the Prismatic World Tour.
Kacey Musgraves tour dates
London-based alt-soul songstress with a heart-melting vocal presence and a Billie Holiday influence. The Hackney-born singer draws on diverse influences from her colourful past, including working as a magicians assistant, actress, burlesque performer and trained contemporary dancer, and uses unconventional theatricals and props to make her stage shows original, engaging and magical.
Paloma Faith tour dates
A Brooklyn born singer with a distinct style that ranges from jazz, funk, R&B, blues and gospel – one that is soulful while still maintaining the elegance he learned from his earlier influences.
His 2016 album 'Take Me To The Alley' became the first jazz album to enter the top 5 of the UK album charts since Jamie Cullum's 'Catching Tales' in 2005.
Gregory Porter tour dates
Since their formation in 2004 Bellowhead have occupied a unique place in Britain's musical landscape. Wild, joyous, perverse, bold, crazy, full-blooded, intricate, fearless, funny, epic and mostly BIG, the mighty 11-piece Bellowhead blend folk, jazz, classical, disco and world music influences with English music and cabaret to stunning effect.
Playing more than 20 instruments between them with six vocalists, they deliver a heady brew that defies categorisation and have placed themselves at the cutting edge of the contemporary music scene while harnessing all the power and mystery of ancient English and European musical traditions.
