British Summer Time is the first big event in Hyde Park since AEG Live won the tender to host concerts there, replacing Live Nation. The event includes a village green with a pub and farmers' market. Plus real lavatories, an outdoor pool bar, bistros, restaurants and cocktail bars.
Across Hyde Park, there will be four themed zones each with its own specially designed installations and entertainment, high quality restaurants, bespoke salons, pubs, cocktail bars, cafes, bistros and independent food stalls. AEG is also committed to working with the natural surroundings of Hyde Park to ensure an environmentally-friendly footprint and has commissioned an internationally respected team of ecologists to advise on the planning and construction of Barclaycard British Summer Time.
From Monday to Thursday, the entire Barclaycard British Summer Time site, saved for the main Great Oak Stage, will give visitors the chance to get involved with smaller, more intimate events offering film, music, literature, sport and a specific family day for the whole family.
There'll be more information here when available.
