Kylie Minogue is to headline this year’s British Summer Time in Hyde Park, event organisers have confirmed.

The Australian singer will be joined by Grace Jones and Chic feat Nile Rodgers on Sunday 21 June.

Minogue will join already confirmed acts including Taylor Swift, Ellie Goulding and John Newman, who will play BST Hyde Park on 27 June; and The Who, Paul Weller, Kaiser Chiefs and Johnny Marr, who will perform on 26 June.

The “Kiss Me Once” singer said: “I’m so excited to perform at Hyde Park this summer. I have great memories of playing shows there and am looking forward to doing it all again. Given the amazing artists performing and that it will be the longest day of the year, I can’t wait.”

Grace Jones is set to perform live for the first time in 2015 at the concert, who said she promises to “bring the Jekyll to Hyde Park”.

Chic and Nile Rogers, who last performed at BST Hyde Park in 2013, were asked back by “popular demand”, according to event organisers.

Barclaycard presale tickets are available from 9am Monday 26 January. General sale begins 9am on Friday 30 June.
