The 2024 series of BST Hyde Park saw a plethora of household names and superstars take to the stage. We were kindly invited for 2 of the dates: Saturday 29th June (SZA headline) and Sunday 14th July (Stray Kids headline). Across these two days, basking in the sunshine, we got to experience the sheer talent of our community - see our little roundups below. The festival area set up much the same as last year with their own colourful little village and 3 music stages: The Great Oak stage, The Rainbow stage and The Bird Cage stage. We were also graced by performances from sensational headliner SZA (who had one of the best stage set ups we've ever seen), included: Sampha, Hope Tala, Sekou, Fabiana Palladino, Nia Smith, Jessy Blackmore, Elmien Maisie Peters, Alec Benjamin, Elijah Woods, Bella Mae, Ben Ellis, and AlienBlaze.

Stray Kids: Making history as the first all male K-POP band to headline BST, the 8 member group bought immense energy over the nearly 2 hour set. Performing songs that spanned across their discography switching it from RnB to hip hop, electronic, and more, the crowd were in for a dazzling treat. The supergroup set the stage alight, with their flawless energetic set. The fire blazing performance had the merch drenched crowds singing and dancing to every word.

Snoh Aalegra: The Swedish/Iranian artist kicked off the second half of the day on the Great Oak stage. The artist breezed through her repertoire of songs that explore different stages of relationships, with simple yet beautiful backdrops of flowers/nature complementing her smooth signature vocals. The independent, Grammy nominated singer's sweet sounds captivated a sun soaked audience.

NMIXX: The South-Korean girl group breaking fresh ground for their debut London performance saw the members donned in school uniform outfits with their brand of MIXXPOP songs. In addition to their genre spanning set, the group also included covers of crowd favourites: Good 4 U (Olivia Rodrigo), Don’t Stop Me Now (Queen) and Don’t Look Back In Anger (Oasis). Radiating pure joy and boundless talent, the sweet but punchy girl group made the crowd their own.

KIRE: Opening the Great Oak Stage, the Taiwanese artist bought his sensual set to an eager crowd for his UK debut, including serenading a fan on stage. KIRE set the standard for the day ahead. A stunning UK debut performance  oozing charisma and smooth vocals - bringing his aura of cool RnB/Pop.

No Guidnce: The emerging British boy band with Filipino member Josh Lomat, headlined the Rainbow Stage with a flurry of old school R&B jams mixed in their own releases. They had the crowds jamming with their infectious energy. Resurrecting the golden age of R&B.

The audience feeling light as they swayed in the sunshine, singing along, especially towards the end when fan favourites were played.
