Forget Glastonbury. It’s time to get civilised. Barclaycard British Summer Time has lined up an incredible array of major international stars this weekend. From the greatest singer (and possibly diva) of all time to the voice that launched, well, sank a famous ship and the original Mr Music, the London park is the centre of music history and legend for the next three days. Don’t want to miss anything? What are the support acts? What time are they on stage? What’s the nearest tube? Can you bring in chairs and bags? We’ve got all the info you need right here. SCROLL DOWN FOR MAP.
