Florence + The Machine have been confirmed as headliners for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time in Hyde Park next year alongside Take That and Mumford and Sons

Florence and The Machine will headline Barclaycard presents British Summer Time in Hyde Park next year.

Frontwoman Florence Welch is looking forward to having "free reign" when she takes to the stage with her band on July 2, 2016 and added that it's an "honour" to perform in her hometown of London where her love of music flourished when she was younger.

The 'Ship to Wreck' singer - whose group headlined Glastonbury Festival for the first time this year, stepping in at the last minute for the Foo Fighters who had to pull out due to Dave Grohl breaking his leg - said: "It's an iconic place to perform, especially for a British artist. I grew up in London, all of my first gigs were here. We will put on something really special. What's amazing is we have free rein. So We are going to make something magical happen."

Kendrick Lamar, Jamie XX and Blood Orange provide support for Florence and The Machine.

Other confirmed BST headliners include Mumford and Sons who will top the bill on July 8 and Take That who will command the Great Oak Stage on July 9.

Tickets go on sale for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time on Friday (04.12.15), while Barclaycard holders can enter the pre-sale today (30.11.15).
