Bon Jovi Confirmed For New Hyde Park Festival

Bon Jovi has been announced as the first headliners for the AEG Live and Royal Parks Barclaycard British Summer Time festival at London's Hyde Park on July 5.

"It is fabulous that, as we begin to celebrate a decade of working together with Bon Jovi, we come together again to launch a reimagined series of shows at the iconic Hyde Park," said a rep for the organizers.

The fest goes down from June 28 to July 7 with music on the weekends and film, music, literature and sport events taking place from Monday through Thursday.

According to the promoters, the park will be littered with "specially designed installations and entertainment, high quality restaurants, bespoke salons, pubs, cocktail bars, cafes, bistros and independent food stalls."

Jov's latest, What about Now?, is due March 25.
