And it’s not the first time she’s headlined BST Hyde Park. The US pop icon took to the stage in 2015 following the success of her 1989 album, performing in front of 65,000 fans and inviting famous friends such as Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid to the stage.

Here’s everything you need to know about next year’s performance and how to get tickets.

When is Taylor Swift playing BST Hyde Park?

Taylor Swift is the latest headline act to be announced for BST Hyde Park, and she’ll perform on Saturday 11 July. 

What songs will she play?

Having just launched her latest album Lover – the top selling album in the US within just 48 hours of release – it’s likely Swift will play some of the major smashes from that record, such as You Need to Calm Down and Lover.

And given that she’s headlining a London festival, we can hope to hear her capital-inspired hit, London Boy.

The star has already confirmed that she won’t be doing a Lover world tour due to family commitments, so BST Hyde Park will be a good opportunity to see some of her newer material live in 2020.

We can also expect to hear Swift’s most famous hits of all time, including I Knew You Were Trouble, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, 22, Shake It Off, Blank Space and Bad Blood.

Swift has also garnered a reputation for putting on a spectacle, from huge guests that have ranged from Camilla Cabello to Mick Jagger, to surprising stage sets including Reputation Stadium Tour’s giant inflatable snake. So we can hopefully expect something similar at her 2020 show in Hyde Park.

Who else has been announced?

Swift is the third act to be announced and joins Little Mix who headline on Saturday 4 July, supported by Rita Ora, Kesha and Zara Larsson.

BST – British Summer Time Hyde Park brings the world’s best music icons to London each summer for a series of shows in the royal park. 

The 2019 series saw headline shows from Florence + the Machine, Robbie Williams, Celine Dion, and Barbra Streisand.

With world-class acts confirmed for 2020 and many more to be announced, next year’s festival looks set to be bigger and better than ever.
