More support announced for Morgan Wallen’s BST show

Morgan Wallen will headline the festival on Thursday 4th July. Wallen’s performance is highly anticipated, and today, even more special guests have been announced in support.

Joining Wallen will be a vibrant mix of talent, including Alana Springsteen, Alexandra Kay, Zandi Holup, Abbie Mac, The Halfway Kid, and Evan Bartels. They complement the previously announced acts Riley Green, ERNEST, and Ella Langley.

Alana Springsteen, a young Nashville singer-songwriter, is leading a new generation of country stars. She released her debut album, “TWENTY SOMETHING,” last year and has been writing songs since she was nine, inspired by a Taylor Swift concert. Her track “taylor did” pays tribute to Swift, but Springsteen is making her own mark with her genuine connection with audiences both live and online.

Alexandra Kay is another rising star, having built her career with millions of video views online before making her Grand Ole Opry debut at the age of 22. She has since collaborated with notable names like Tim McGraw and Randy Travis, performed at the UK’s Country to Country festival, and released her debut album, “All I’ve Ever Known,” in 2023, which has amassed over 300 million streams.

Newcomer Zandi Holup brings a prolific artist-writer background reminiscent of folk icons like Dolly Parton and Joni Mitchell. Her debut song “Gas Station Flowers” last year showcased her raw, original folk country style, characterised by unfiltered storytelling and emotive vocals, which have garnered a growing grassroots following.

Also performing are Derry’s teenage singer-songwriter Abbie Mac, British-Sudanese folk singer The Halfway Kid, and emerging Nebraskan artist Evan Bartels.

This diverse and talented line-up joins the previously announced acts, including country star Riley Green making his first UK performance, Nashville’s unpredictable hitmaker ERNEST, and rising artist Ella Langley.

Headliner Morgan Wallen expressed his excitement, saying, “Last autumn was my first time in the UK and man, I loved it. I saw so much while I was there, and the people were incredible. To play where legendary artists like Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones have played is a huge honour for me and my band, and we can’t wait to be back.”

Morgan Wallen’s meteoric rise in the music industry is evident, with 13 No. 1 hits and a recent collaboration with Post Malone on “I Had Some Help,” which soared to No. 2 on the Official Charts in the UK and held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for four consecutive weeks. The New York Times has hailed him as “one of the biggest stars in pop, period,” as he continues to captivate audiences worldwide, playing to over 2.4 million fans.

Earlier this year, Wallen released the “Abbey Road Sessions,” commemorating the one-year anniversary of his record-setting album “One Thing At A Time.” Recorded in London’s iconic Studio Two at Abbey Road Studios, the digital series includes five live recordings from the album, an unreleased fan-favourite “Lies Lies Lies,” and a cover of Nothing But Thieves’ “Graveyard Whistling.”

The line-up for American Express presents BST Hyde Park 2024 promises to be spectacular, with headliners including SZA (June 29), Kings of Leon (June 30), Morgan Wallen (July 4), Andrea Bocelli (July 5), Robbie Williams (July 6), Shania Twain (July 7), Stevie Nicks (July 12), Kylie (July 13), and Stray Kids (July 14), with full line-ups for each day to be announced, along with All Things Orchestral on June 28.
