K-pop band Stray Kids will headline the British Summer Time (BST) festival for the first time in 2024, it has been announced.
Over the weekend, billboards for the group appeared around London that simply read “STAY TUNED” in Stray Kids font. This left fans wondering what the fuss was all about but now it has been revealed that they will be coming to London in July.
The group were originally supposed to go to London in 2020 as part of their world tour, but unfortunately that had to be postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions. Now, STAYS (as the group’s fans are called) will get to see Stray Kids perform in Hyde Park on Sunday 14th July after headliners Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli on 5th July and Robbie Williams on 6th July.
The eight-piece, who won Best K-Pop for their single S-Class at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, said: “To all our UK STAYs – we can’t wait to see you at BST Hyde Park.”
“This is our first time performing at a UK festival and it’s an honor to play in Hyde Park where so many legends have played before us. Come and dance with us.”
Jim King, Managing Director of European Festivals at AEG Presents, said: “We are so excited to welcome international superstars Stray Kids to BST Hyde Park this July for the first time.
“We are honored to bring Stray Kids to the stage in 2024, as this genre only continues to grow from strength to strength.”
