Stereophonics will join US rock band Pearl Jam for their second night headlining the British Summer Time Hyde Park Festival.

Pearl Jam are performing at the London festival for two consecutive nights after their original show planned for 2020 sold out in record time.

The festival is returning for its eighth edition this summer after the 2020 and 2021 events were cancelled due to the pandemic.

Welsh rock band Stereophonics formed in Cwmaman, the Cynon Valley, in 1992. They have released 11 albums, with seven number-one singles.

Some of their best known hits include Dakota, Maybe Tomorrow and Have A Nice Day.
