Justin Bieber has become the fourth headliner announced for Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2017
Justin Bieber will headline Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park 2017.
The 22-year-old singer will take to the stage at London's Hyde Park on Sunday 2 July, as a UK festival exclusive that will make up part of his ongoing 'Purpose World Tour' which previously saw him sell out two nights at London's O2 Arena earlier this year.
British Summer Time - often shortened to BST – is a festival experience which takes place over six days and two weekends, with each day playing host to a fantastic headliner as well as a host of popular supporting acts.
Taking to the stage alongside the 'Sorry' hitmaker, are incredible acts such as EDM superstar Martin Garrix, Swedish sensation Tove Lo, and rising star Anne-Marie, who recently became one to watch after featuring in Clean Bandit's hit new single 'Rockabye'.
Speaking about Justin's involvement in the festival, James King of AEG Live said: "Justin Bieber has proven himself to be a master singer, songwriter and live performer. Bringing the Purpose Tour to Hyde Park next summer is without question the Pop show of the summer."
Whilst BST will mark the only concert the 'Love Yourself' singer will perform in London for 2017, fans will get the chance to see him in a slightly smaller setting as he returns to the UK on 30 June for a special performance at Cardiff's Principality Stadium. These two gigs are the only dates Justin will be performing in the UK over 2017.
The 'Baby' musician is the fourth headliner to be announced so far.
Phil Collins will take to the stage on 30 Jun, with Green Day following up on 1 Jul. Justin Bieber will then wow crowds on 2 Jul, whilst Kings of Leon will play their only UK festival appearance during the second weekend on 6 July.
Tickets start at £65 for general admission, and go on sale on Friday 16 December, with Barclaycard customers having access to an exclusive presale from Monday 12 December.
