Pop star Kylie Minogue will headline the British Summer Time festival at Hyde Park in June.

She will be joined by Grace Jones and Nile Rodgers, bringing a disco theme to the event on 21 June.

The 10-day festival also features The Who and Taylor Swift as headliners on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 June respectively.

Kylie previously played in Hyde Park at the BBC's Proms in the Park in 2012, backed by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

"I have great memories of playing shows there and am looking forward to doing it all again," said the Australian singer.

"Given the amazing artists performing and that it will be the longest day of the year, I can't wait!"

Fellow club queen Grace Jones added: "I'll bring the Jekyll to Hyde Park".

Pre-sale tickets for the show are available now before the general sale, which begins on Friday, 30 January.
