Like pop music? Then chances are you'll probably like British Summer Time. Like rock music? Then chances are you'll probably like British Summer Time. Etc etc ETC.
Sometimes it's nice to just revel in a bit of unashamed pop music. Just bounce about in the sun with some cider, while a brightly coloured youngster with a perma-grin leaps about the stage spouting infectious melodies and singing about love and being in a 'club'.
With Taylor Swift headlining this year, it's the perfect time to do just that. Plop your butt down on the grass, and let a varied lineup school you in the latest mainstream music – in essence, it's a great entry-level festival. You could even take the kids too, if you like.
It's not all pop though - there's a strong rock contingent too, with a decent amount of classic rock acts and modern masters. In fact, there's a pretty wide range on offer, from hip-hop to indie. You'll find something to enjoy at BST, even if it's just catching someone spill their pint all over themselves.
Don't settle for a boring burger for lunch. There are loads of fancy grub-stands at BST, so open you mind (and your giant jaw) and try something a little different, you pleb.
How do I get there?
The nearest tube stations to Hyde Park are Hyde Park Corner (obviously), Marble Arch and Lancaster Gate.
It's best not to come by car because London is a hell-hole, but if you do, then there's a big, secure car park called Q-Park, which has entrances at Park Lane and Marble Arch. Also, if you drive, you can't GET PISSED.
