The 2019 British Summertime Festival in London's Hyde Park is going to be incredible.

Not only that, but Lionel Richie will join him on the night as a special guest. Incredible.

James King, Senior Vice President at AEG Presents, said: “There are headliners, great headliners, line ups, stellar, lineups and a thousand other adjectives we use but we will never find the one that correctly describes what will be happening in Hyde Park on Saturday July 6th.

"Stevie Wonder is singing his biggest hits for his very own 'Song Party' and for good measure, and to our mutual amazement, joy and wonder, he is also bringing his good friend Lionel Richie. See you down the front.”

They join fellow headliners Robbie Williams, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Florence & the Machine and The National at this year's event.
