BST Hyde Park Guns n’ Roses, The Pretenders, The Darkness – Stage times, maps | Music | Entertainment

P!nk kicked off this year’s American Express presents BST 2023 with two spectacular shows last weekend. And that was just the beginning.

This weekend has different superstar headliners across both nights, with some pretty major support acts, and Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen still to come over the next few weeks.

We have all the stage times for this weekend here, plus important information about what you can not bring into the park.

Plus, how to make sure you don’t lose people when the mobile phone networks struggle to handle 65,000 people trying to call all at once.

Scroll down, too, for the official map of British Summertime 2023.


Yes, that’s right, the legendary US rockets are performing a full three-hour show and will take to the Great Oak Main Stage tonight at 7.20pm and finish at 10.20pm. This also means that the support acts are shuffling to earlier slots than usual at this festival

GREAT OAK MAIN STAGE TIMES: US roots rock band Larkin Poe, fronted by the Lovell sisters, will open the main stage from 2.35-3.15pm before British glam rock stars The Darkness with multi-octave lead singer Justin Hawkins take over from 3.45-4.30pm.

Chrissie Hynde brought on some impressive guests like Dave Grohl at Glastonbury last weekend but with or without added treats, The iconic The Pretenders are sure to whip the crowds into a frenzy from 5.10-6.20pm.

RAINBOW STAGE (in the far north of the enclosure):

The Dust Cloud from 3.15-3.45pm, James & The Cold Gun from 4.30-5.10pm and then Dirty HOney from 6.20-7pm. After that, the Rainbow Stage closes for the rest of the day.

BIRDCAGE STAGE (right by the main South Entrance):

The Foxies from 3.10-3.40pm, Bad Nerves from 4.35-5.05pm and then Grade 2 from 6.25-7pm. After that, The Birdcage will close.

NEAREST TUBE: Hyde Park Corner, but you can also use Marble Arch and enter BST through the North Entrance.
