Emeli Sandé, Noel Gallagher, Roger Waters and Eric Clapton are just a few of the famous faces you can see perform live at music festivals across the capital this month
Whether you want to listen to pop music from Bruno Mars or classical tunes from II Divo, there’s a festival for you this month – wherever you are in the city. Staying central? Then make a beeline for British Summer Time in Hyde Park, now in its sixth year (6-15 Jul). This year’s headliners include Roger Waters as part of his Us + Them Tour, The Cure, Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Canadian crooner Michael Bublé in his only UK show this year, and Bruno Mars, who performs tunes from his 24K Magic album. Is it OK to be more excited about the support acts? Guests include Bananarama, The Feeling, Van Morrison and Khalid (www.bst-hydepark.com).
Summer Series, in the beautiful courtyard of Somerset House, is also a regular on the festival scene (5-15 Jul). You might discover new talent as the event mixes established and emerging artists, but British pop band Metronomy is likely to grab the headlines, as will hip-hop legends De La Soul and The Roots. Many tickets are already sold out, but call for returns (www.somersethouse.org.uk).
