A new summer festival in Hyde Park, now that Wireless and Hard Rock Calling have moved over to the former Olympic Park, with Barclaycard sponsorship meaning plenty of cash to splash on big names. So say 'Hello' to Lionel Richie and prepare to get 'On the Floor' (well, grass) with J-Lo: they'll be serving up a pop double-whammy for the closing night of the series. Also booked for the main stage is Nile Rodgers, fronting his disco pioneers Chic and playing some of the many hits he's had a hand in (which could well include Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky'), plus Stooshe and Eliza Doolittle. The pop, funk and R&B-tilted bill also includes Charlie Brown, Vince Kidd, Smiler, Amplify Dot, Al Jarreau, Beverly Knight, Delilah, Angel, Incognito, Light Of The Word and – no joke – Pigbag.
