What is BST Hyde Park?

BST Hyde Park is a 10-day music festival which started in 2013, with next year’s event marking its 10th anniversary.

Now, over three weekends, the festival’s mission is to offer an event like no other. The festival features big-name headliners and support from up-and-coming artists.

Between the three weekends, there is also a free mid-week program called Open House, which offers free activities and entertainment. This year, the event included eight days of film screenings, yoga classes and live music.
