News: BST Hyde Park reveal international K-pop stars Stray Kids as next headliner

American Express presents BST Hyde Park is delighted to announce that South Korean megastars Stray Kids will headline on London’s most iconic stage on Sunday 14 July. The globally loved K-pop group Stray Kids are set to captivate their UK fans with their highly-anticipated debut headline performance at London’s iconic Hyde Park for a UK exclusive show in 2024.​ Tickets go on sale Monday 12 February at 10am GMT, visit www.bst-hydepark.com

South Korean boyband Stray Kids were formed by JYP Entertainment through the 2017 reality show of the same name, and are composed of eight members: Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N. They released their debut EP Mixtape in 2018, planting them at the top of the Korean charts, and as they climbed the charts around the world, the group scored a pair of No.1s in South Korea for 2020’s GO LIVE and its repackaged version IN LIFE. The group’s second full-length studio album Noeasy arrived in August 2021 – buoyed by the singles ‘Thunderous,’ ‘Wolfgang’, and ‘Mixtape: Oh’, they topped the South Korean album charts again, and reached No.5 on Billboard’s World Albums chart.

There has been no slowing down since then. In the years that followed Stray Kids have secured four number 1 spots on the Billboard 200, and in 2023 picked up an MTV Video Music Award for ‘Best K-Pop’; as well as a Billboard Music Award for Top K-Pop Album for their latest record 5-Star.

Sharing the 2024 edition of their annual ‘Step Out’ video series earlier this month, which saw them look back at what they achieved in 2023 and outline their plans for the year ahead, Stray Kids teased the release of two new albums in 2024 and also hinted at embarking on a massive world tour.

Performing a blend of big bass, electronic dance music, rap and R&B-inspired vocals influenced by Drake, Bruno Mars, Big Bang, GOT7, and Block B, fans can expect Stray Kids to deliver an electrifying full live set, showcasing all their chart-topping biggest hits on the iconic Great Oak Stage.​ They will be curating a day of incredible music, inviting some of today’s top artists to join in crafting an unforgettable experience.

Stray Kids say: “To all our UK STAYs – we cannot wait to see you at BST Hyde Park! This is our first time performing at a UK festival and it is such an honour to play in Hyde Park where so many legends have played before us. Come dance with us!”

Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, says, “We’re so excited to welcome international superstars Stray Kids to BST Hyde Park in July for the first time! We’re honoured to bring Stray Kids to the stage in 2024, as this genre only continues to grow from strength to strength.”

What BST Hyde Park does best is bring the greatest music superstars to London for once-in-a-lifetime shows. Stray Kids join previously announced headliners Andrea Bocelli (5 July) and Robbie Williams (6 July) with more to be announced soon.
