05 October 2020, 10:03 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

London's BST Hyde Park festival has confirmed Pearl Jam as the first headliner for next year's event.

After the 2020 show series was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Pearl Jam have been invited back to headline one of the BST Hyde Park shows for next year.

Pearl Jam are the first headliner to be confirmed for next year's festival, and will perform two shows on 9 and 10 July.

Pixies have been announced as guests on 9 July, while IDLES will play on 10 July.

Those that bought tickets to last year's Pearl Jam BST Hyde Park show will have priority access to rebook and experience both shows with a two-day ticket.

Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, says, "We couldn't be happier to be back and we can’t wait to bring everyone together with BST Hyde Park 2021, for what could be the most memorable British Summer Time ever… Pearl Jam jumped at the chance to celebrate after having to cancel their show this year and we are honoured that they agreed to play two consecutive nights, a first for BST. As their fans know, they are the perfect artists for such an unprecedented double bill."

Pearl Jam will play London's BST Hyde Park on 9 and 10 July 2021. Tickets go on sale 10am BST on Saturday (10 October). Find out more.
