‘A touring stadium show with a corporate finish’ – BST Hyde Park returns

After two years in exile, the reinvigorated inner-city festival returns to London’s Hyde Park with some of the biggest names and most talented crew on the touring circuit.

American Express presents BST Hyde Park returned to crowds with a new headline sponsor and revamped staging infrastructure. Taking place across three weekends from 24 June to 10 July 2022, this year’s line-up boasted headline sets from the likes of Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Eagles, Adele, Pearl Jam and Duran Duran, as well as support from rising stars in the shape of Phoebe Bridgers, Sam Fender and Tiana Major9, among many others. Describing the festival as a “touring stadium show with a corporate finish”, Technical Production Director, Mark Ward of Proper Productions, oversaw all technical aspects of three stages – from stage to audio, lighting, video, and artist liaison – dealing with over 130 performers across three weekends.
