Support for Stevie Wonder at British Summer Time in Hyde Park announced!

Yes, it’s only the start of the week but let’s look forward to the weekend already because the support acts have been announced for Stevie Wonder at British Summer Time Hyde Park this Saturday 6th July, and it’s a smart line-up of great talent!

First up is Joel Culpepper, is a London born R&B artist with a style inspired by British fashion and modern culture. His unforgettable voice compliments and contributes to the impact of his exceptional live shows. Culpepper’s song writing ranges from mostly ballads to evoking elements of psychedelia and hip hop. 

Benedict Cork released his first EP ‘Piano Tapes’ over the summer of 2018, a completely live performance of 5 tracks recorded at Red Gate Recorders in LA. His first release of 2019 was ‘Therapy,’ a sweeping piano ballad with themes of mental health and self love. This was followed by ‘Fear Of Lonely’, written during Benedict’s time living in Stockholm, Sweden about the loneliness of moving to a new country after a break-up, and ‘Funny How Things Change,’ which explores the passing of time after a relationship ends and the distance this can create between two people. Most recently, Benedict supported Brit Award winner Tom Walker and Grammy nominated Emily King and co-wrote Adam Lambert’s single ‘Feel Something’ which Rolling Stone called “an achingly yearning ballad.” He returns with his fourth single of 2019 ‘Breaking Hearts,’ which focuses on the guilt and regret of breaking the heart of someone you thought you loved.

Norman Jay MBE, one of the most respected DJ’s in the world today, will be landing on the Great Oak Stage this summer. Finding his space once again, Norman has amassed a new generation of Dance music fans globally whilst continuing to incorporate his rich music heritage into every set. Expect to see all walks of life in this crow. 
 
The Heavy are back bolder than ever with their forth album, Sons, released earlier this year. The Rock-Soul infused Hip-Hop party starters pour raw and intense emotion into their live sets which has led to high profile features over the years. There is no sign of stopping for the Bath based band so buckle up for a captivating performance. 
The Cuban Brothers, consisting of Miguel Mantovani, Archerio Mantovani and Kengo San’s legendary performances have left a mark as they continuously sell out shows worldwide. Their music combines soul and funk with comedy whilst accompanying sensational dancing meaning no one will be able to remain static at their BST performance.  

Four of Diamonds are bringing their vibrant positivity to BST this July with empowering, lively and fun music. The four girls first met in the thirteenth series of the X factor after they were placed together as a group. Their punchy, euphoric sound steps away from the girl bands that have preceded them. 

Of course, already on the bill with Stevie is Lionel Richie, Lianne La Havas and Corinne Bailey Rae! Fancy finding out more info about the full line-up and even? Visit: www.bst-hydepark.com
