Caro Emerald will play the festival on 12 Jun 2, jazz star Jools Holland performs on 6 Jun, new-wave pioneers Tears For Fears on 18 and 19 Jun, and pop legends The Jacksons on 7 Jun.

Kylie will headline on June 20 and 21, for what will be the Australian pop princess' only London dates of the summer. The finale night will also see a fireworks spectacular over the palace.
