Kylie Minogue will headline London's Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park in June, supported by Grace Jones and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers.

As the third headliner announced after Taylor Swift and The Who, Kylie will top the bill at the festival on 21 June - and bring a much needed injection of disco to Hyde Park. If it's a patch on Minogue's vibrant 'Kiss Me Once' tour then we'll be in for a treat - particularly if she plays her latest collaboration with Giorgio Moroder.

Also announced on the bill is Grace Jones, who can always be relied upon to produce something truly extraordinary. Expect costume changes aplenty, extreme headgear, judicious use of lasers and some truly bonkers commentary. As the lady herself put it, "I'll bring the Jekyll to Hyde Park"

Chic featuring Nile Rodgers round off the bill. Rodgers has recently been in the studio with both Duran Duran and Lady Gaga but it is his deep back catalogue of flawless dancefloor fillers that will be on display here.

Other acts due to feature across the festival include Ellie Goulding, Paul Weller, John Newman, Kaiser Chiefs and Johnny Marr.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 30 January. Buy tickets here.
