Global superstars BLACKPINK will be lighting up American Express presents BST Hyde Park this summer on Sunday 2nd July as the first K-pop group in history to headline a major UK festival. This legendary day just got even more exciting, as BST Hyde Park share more names heading to the Rainbow Stage including REBECCA BLACK, PEACH PRC, MAZIE, ANNIKA BENNETT, SARAH CREAN and SPIDER. They join previously announced special guests SABRINA CARPENTER, THE ROSE, CAITY BASER and MAE STEPHENS.
REBECCA BLACK will be making her BST Hyde Park debut on the Rainbow stage. Since 2011, ‘Friday’ singer Black has forged an incredible career in music, as a YouTuber and personality, with over 3 million followers across TikTok, Instagram and YouTube and featuring in some of the biggest pop culture moments of the 2010s. She is also a vocal advocate for the importance of mental health and bravely talks about the impact of cyberbullying after her own experiences. Black is now officially solidifying her place as a mature singer songwriter, having released the EP Rebecca Black Was Here in 2021 and her debut solo album Let Her Burn in February 2023.
Australian TikTok superstar, PEACH PRC, will also be joining the line-up. The pop singer, songwriter and social media star independently released her debut single ‘Blondes’ in 2019, which gained her global attention. Peach has since been credited as one of the most successful Australian creators on TikTok, with 2 million followers and more than 145 million likes. Peach’s debut EP Manic Dream Pixie was released in April 2023, and she will be bringing her new music and huge following with her this year to BST.
US pop artist MAZIE has been hailed as the next evolution of psychedelic pop, with her unique arrangements that pull from pop, punk and electronic music. MAZIE initially rose to fame with the release of her 2021 song ‘dumb dumb’, which was featured in the Netflix original film Do Revenge and now has over 250 million global streams. In her 2023 debut album blotter baby, Mazie tackles early 20s heartbreak and a Gen-Z doom mindset through ‘60s and ‘70s inspired pop hooks.
The list doesn’t end there, with even more acts joining on the Rainbow Stage. Award-winning singer-songwriter ANNIKA BENNETT has written for major names including Bülow, Ashley Kutcher, Goody Grace, Walk Off The Earth and more. She is now bringing her own voice to the stage and is currently touring with SABRINA CARPENTER. Plus SARAH CREAN, a Dublin-based musician who rose to fame with her enormous breakout hit ‘2AM’, which topped US Spotify viral chart in November last year. She’s back again with her new single ‘What Do I Know?’, solidifying her as one of the most exciting names on the rise right now. Also SPIDER, a 21-year-old artist and producer from Ireland, whose new EP Hell or High Water brings her distinct and powerful voice as a young person of colour to the world of alt-pop.
