After a thunderous set last weekend, the Stones are back for their second and final show tonight. Next weekend, Duran Duran and Pearl Jam will take the main stage for three nights. With BST Hyde Park presented by American Express, you can scroll down to learn about all the great privileges you can enjoy if you upgrade to the American Express Experience and Pregnant Summer Garden. And it bears repeating that mobile phone networks struggle with the volume of people in such a small space, so make sure you make clear plans before you go about when and where to meet up with friends at easily identifiable points on the map below because probably won. You won’t be able to call them once inside.
Scroll down for the Eagles’ stage and schedule tonight, June 26. Also, all supporting acts on the main stage and three smaller satellite stages, starting in the afternoon.
NEAREST SUBWAY: Hyde Park Corner on the Piccadilly line is the closest to the main south entrance. For the north entrance at the end of the precinct, use the Marble Arch station on the Central Line.
MAP BELOW: As well as finding all the stages, food outlets and toilets, use the map to organize the best place and time to meet all the people you’re trying to find once you’re inside the British summer. There will be up to 65,000 people and potentially limited cell phone coverage, so plan ahead.
