Florence + The Machine have been confirmed as the latest headliners for Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2019.
The indie-rock band will take to the stage at the iconic central London park on Saturday 13 July 2019. It will be the second time Florence + The Machine have headlined the festival, which is now in its seventh year.
Led by the force of nature Florence Welch, Florence + The Machine broke through in 2009 with their wildly successful debut album Lungs. The record, which features the massive singles You’ve Got the Love and Dogs Days Are Over peaked at No.1 on the Official UK Albums Chart and saw the group pick up the 2010 Brit Award for Album of the Year.
Since their debut, the band have gone onto release three more studio albums; 2011’s Ceremonials, 2015’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful and their latest effort 2018’s High as Hope.
High as Hope features the singles Hunger and Full of Song and received widespread critical acclaim for the deeply personal lyrical content throughout the record.
The band have just completed a sold-out UK arena tour to promote the album included two nights at The O2 Arena. The band were praised for the live shows and received a five-star review from The Telegraph.

With a raft of hit singles under their belts including Shake It Out, Spectrum and Ship to Wreck, it’s sure to be a phenomenal show when Florence + The Machine take to the stage at London’s Hyde Park next summer.
They’ll be joined on the day by The National, plus special guests Lykke Li, Khruangbin, Nadine Shah and many more still to be announced.
