The Cure are set to headline BST Hyde Park

They’ll be joined by Interpol, Goldfrapp, Ride and more!

The Cure are set to headline next year’s British Summer Time in Hyde Park, an exclusive European gig for 2018, and it’s all to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

The legends are set to play on Saturday 7th July and of course it wouldn’t be a proper bash without a few special guests, and there’s some very special guests indeed set to join them. Interpol are joining the bill in July, as are Goldfrapp, Ride and Slowdive. The Twilight Sad – who joined The Cure for the whole of their World Tour 2016 – will also be heading to Hyde Park, as are Editors. More acts will be announced soon.

Other headliners at next year’s British Summer Time are Bruno Mars, Eric Clapton, Roger Waters and Michael Bublé. 

Tickets for The Cure’s gig on Saturday 7th July go on sale from 9am on Friday 15th December.
