British Summer Time: Green Day

Veteran punksters Green Day are the latest act to join the stellar list of British Summer Time festival headliners. Despite almost three decades in music they are still riding high on speed-driven rock, blistering ballads and are a real force to be reckoned with live. Need further proof? The band recently scored yet another US number one with new album 'Revolution Radio'.

British Summer Time: Justin Bieber

Biebs' renaissance in the last few years has opened up his fans beyond the tween market meaning this won't simply be a tween scream-fest but a waltz through JB's recent monster hits. However, the blonde bombshell does have a rollercoaster ride with fame so here's hoping he's on good form. Support comes from Martin Garrix, Tove Lo, Anne-Marie.

British Summer Time: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

In many ways this something of a homecoming gig for Petty and his heartbreaking gang as they first came to the UK 40 years ago and were instantly feted by people hooked on their unadulterated country rock.They rarely play live now so it's a huge coup that support comes from wildly influential Fleetwood Mac member – and friend to the band – Stevie Nicks.
