Eric Clapton has been announced as the fourth headliner for BST Festival 2018.
This isn't the first time Clapton will appear on the Great Oak Stage. He first performed with Blind Faith on 7 June 1969 alongside bandmates Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood and Rick Grech in front of 120,000 people.
Clapton then returned in 1996 to record a concert that raised money for The Prince's Trust. He has performed almost 200 times down the road at the Royal Albert Hall.
"I have happy memories of performing in Hyde Park in the past," he said, "and I'm really looking forward to playing there again - the whole atmosphere is very special."
Tickets to see Eric Clapton go on sale at 9am on 1 December.
