Let him entertain you on 6 July. 

The major music festival BST Hyde Park knows how to put on a show. Now, it has announced that the singing superstar Robbie Williams will headline Hyde Park on Saturday, 6 July. So, if you want to catch the award-winning performer, here’s what you need to know. 

The singer – real name Robert Peter Williams – hails from Stoke-on-Trent, England. His mum was a florist, and his dad ran a pub. He recently told FACT: “Music was epically important to me. It was the only thing as a preteen and teenager that you could own. I get my inspiration from a compulsion to express myself.”

In 1990, Robbie rose to fame in the boyband Take That. He left the group and left fans in tears. In 1996, he released his first solo single, Freedom. He scored hit after hit with his songwriter and producing partner, Guy Chambers. His chart-topping songs include Angels, EternityMillennium and Rock DJ. Over his career, he sold 75 million records and notched up six UK number-one singles.

BST Hyde Park – full name British Summer Time in Hyde Park – started in 2013. Over the years, the headline acts have included Celine Dion, Kylie Minogue, Stevie Wonder and The Rolling Stones. Plus, Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney performed at the festival, and had the plug pulled on their set.
