Massive Attack are to headline on Friday 1st July at AEG Live's Barclaycard presents British Summer Time happening in London's Hyde Park.

They will be supported on the line-up by Young Fathers, Patti Smith & her band, GhostpoetTV on the Radio, and Warpaint.

James King, Senior Vice President, AEG Live commented: "With an incredible archive of music that has stood the test of time and inspired so many, Massive Attack are still providing a heartbeat for the World. More than that, their music and live performances form a message that makes us stop, think and evaluate when we are so often encouraged not to. With powerful beats, orchestral arrangements, beautiful melodies by incredible vocalists, inspired video art - it’s hard to think of a more important moment for the World to listen to Massive Attack than right now. The band's production has always been a shining light in live music and to see their video art across 900m2 of screen on the Great Oak Stage will be a truly breathtaking sight."

Florence + The Machine with support from Kendrick Lamar, Jamie XX, Cat Power, Kamasi Washington, Todd Terje & The Olsens, and Blood Orange top the bill on Saturday 2nd July.

Mumford & Sons headline on Friday 8th July with Wolf Alice, Alabama Shakes, Mystery Jets, Nick Mulvey, Baaba Maal, Borns, The Very Best, Beatenberg, and Baio, also confirmed for that day.
