I’d be gutted to see this cancelled but it seems like the most sensible thing to do, the virus will still likely be around so a mass gathering of this kind of number of people would just be irresponsible. It should just be cancelled and the sooner this decision is made the sooner things can be sorted out for everyone.

Hurry up and give us our refunds plz ! Its blaintenly not going to go ahead and i dont wanna go given the current situation.

Just cancel now, cut your losses and get better acts to replace them 🤣

Postpone until next year. It would be really stupid and tone deaf to hold mass gatherings this summer. Even if infection has slowed down by then, events like this could create a second wave. I have tickets and was really looking forward to seeing Pearl Jam, but would prefer to wait until next year than put myself and others in danger.

To be honest, I think it was too rushed selling tickets for Duran Duran when the situation was deteriorating really fast. Future is uncertain and I really hope that this can happen. But if it can´t happen, give us going from abroad the chance to cancel our trips on time for refunds. Good luck and stay safe everyone.

Time to do the right thing & cancel No chance this is going ahead Give people maximum time to cancel trains, flights, hotels etc! Stop kidding yourselves on.

Can we have an update please? It’s obviously not going to go ahead but confirmation would be nice.

Surely there needs to be an announcement on this very soon?

CANCEL. It's the only choice.

If you postpone can you make it a weekend or school holidays please?

It's not easy as potponing it or cancelling it for the most part and there are a lot of moving parts with things like this. if they postpone or cancel they may not be able to deliver the artists they have promised at later dates or next year due to other commitments and they will likely have booked next years acts already. If its not safe to go ahead them obviously that is a reason to cancel and they should but July is still a very long time away and if we can get this sorted within the 12 weeks they are suggesting we can then this falls very much outside of that. at least they have given us an update on what to expect currently, some events and companies arent even doing that much

I honestly can’t imagine anything other than full cancellation. Too many moving parts to get all the same artists together on the same day. Absolutely gutted, but I know Pearl Jam will make it right, those dudes are always good for it.

I see they're deleting posts but not answering the main question. PLEASE update on the status of this event!

This was 2 weeks ago!!! Surely you have an update and put ya out our misery and arrange our refunds!!!

canceling the festival is the most obvious solution, otherwise you would have many victims on your conscience

BST Hyde Park Hurry up and make your statement. It’s past time we were told what’s going on. This needs to be postponed until next summer. Mass gatherings in July is a stupid idea. Don’t keep us hanging, be responsible like the Glastonbury organisers who obviously value their patrons health over their money.

I’m sure that you will do the right thing at the appropriate time. But, in case it helps, I’m prepared to stand outside in December in the dark, cold, and driving rain to watch Pearl Jam 👍

I hope we have the option of a refund if needed , I need to cancel a hotel preferably a month before the gig, I can’t go later in the year.

Update please? Is this concert going ahead. Please let people know as we need to plan in advance. Thank you

So many people on here still think it's a little disease that will have cleared in a few weeks! I'm not sure you're aware of the nature of how it spreads and feeling hard done by because you're not going to see your favourite act is pretty sad.

Let us know about little mix in july as we have got tickets for it and paid £289

I wish you would tell us what is going on people are disabled and need to book support and chaparones and are in isolation. Other gigs and festivals are cancelled.

Quicker you announce the likely cancellation, the quicker people can sort out refunded hotels, rail tickets etc.

its surely impossible for it to go ahead sadly im gutted as ive waited years to see Taylor Swift and Little Mix and who knows how much longer ill have to wait now

this Corona virus will keep us busy for a few months, look @ China...they still don't have a normal live...it will be a strange year for the entire world. Health and safety before anything else. I'm sure the organization will take a wise decision...feel sorry for the organizers and for all who wanted to see their idols. #keepSafe #stayHome

Will it go ahead though??

Surely this will be cancelled

Tba I’ll just be happy to wake up on 12/7/20 at this rate

Stop this!!! At this point over 3 months away, second guessing doesn’t help, reports this evening are of vaccines in Australia and Cuba being developed!!! So until someone says so, think positively and hope it all pans out!!

Hope it dont get cancelled 🤞

Please cancel and issue refunds.

None of this will be going ahead now

Not happening.

I was going on the Friday Pearl Jam and Pixies. I reckon it will be cancelled sadly 😭

Well that's £300 of my 17 year old daughters money down the drain 🤷‍♀️😯

It’s worth the money x Great afternoon and evening as long as weather holds out x

Rob Ellis three bands/acts I’d love to see (if it happens) fancy it?

Not booking any thing this year at least

Cannot wait to see Taylor swift on Saturday and then Duran Duran on Sunday. It'll be one of the best weekends EVER!!!! ❤️

Glastonbury is looking to be cancelled to possibly September if at all.... bst will not go ahead this year

Not for me .... just doesn’t cut the suuuuunshiiiinnnee Ginge will though as his taste in music isn’t as good as mine 🙄

Shame this wasn't on now....they could of cancelled it 😂😂😂😂😂

Cmon ginge... you’re losing your indie tag so you know you will end up going You won’t have a choice... you can wear matching outfits as well 😂

Don’t bother, it going be cancelled.

Great line I saw Duran Duran along with Goldfrap many years ago they put on a great show. Hope also it happens hope during the summer time it burns this Monster virus right if the face of this earth. 🤞It goes ahead

All these shows are doomed

Why would anyone buy tickets to anything at this moment in time? You’re all mad!

Really wanted to go to this but holding off getting tickets, at least for now, given the current circumstances. Shame.

Can't wait!!!!! DD live are always awesome

£142 for gold circle.... And it's not even at the front... Bit steep 🙁

Julie Kyle Brenda Shaw Niki Skelton - this year’s line up beginning to be announced. Can’t tag liz for some reason

Tickets sorted, yay 😀

I’m there! Love Duran Duran!

Pearl Jam won’t be playing seeing they cancelled their tour in the US. Will these shows get postponed and rescheduled or cancelled? I can see stadium and arena shows being postponed but feativals surely have to be cancelled. I can’t see BST or Glastonbury happening in November!

Julia Williams fancy a Hyde park trip this year?? There’s this one or Taylor swift headlining on the 11th

Joy Jensen wir waren sehr sehr sehr lange nicht mehr zusammen in London!!!

I would love to see Duran Duran

Probably the best day out of all of them!

Waiting for my pre sale email. 😁😁

Let’s see how much the tickets will be

Is this right time to announce this with world situation and possible future limits on gatherings

Wow would love this x

Looks like Pearl Jam are bombing out as well....🙄

Last time I saw them in London was at Lovebox in Hackney, more than a decade ago

Going on my own and dont even care 😃🙌❤

Great line-up❣️👌👍👏

With any luck the plug will be pulled on the whole sorry lot!

Is that poster upside down

Omg I need to go to this and see Duran Duran live 😍😍😍😍

Would love to see this line up!

What a strange line-up 🤔

I thought Duran Duran was IOW exclusive? 🤔

Why are they 'notorious '?

Very disappointed with the line up this year . I was looking forward for this year but i don't think i will be attending this year 😭😭😭

No, thank you. We're sticking with Little Mix 😉 Each to their own, I suppose!

This is ridiculous, I was hanging out for The Everly Brothers, Val Doonican, Des O'Connor, or The Monkees (if that's still allowed). They've obviously aiming for a different market now. Think I'll spend my Shillings elsewhere 😁

hoping My Chemical Romance will be listed as my daughter really wants to see them and they are local (Milton Keynes) around this time...

A total change in the line up this year - and in doing so have alienated the fan base of this festival. Come on AMEX why change the entire thing? If its not broken don't fix it!

Oh dear. I've been going every year since 2006 when it was Hard Rock Calling. I've had amazing times seeing absolute legends over the years, but looks like I won't be going in 2020. Wow, you've really changed course in the audience you are now targeting. Good luck with that!

Poor line up this year. On the plus side that’s at least £500 of my hard earned cash staying in my pocket

Post Malone is multi talented and brilliant artist...I for one am looking forward to seeing him this summer....can't please everyone....and yes I've been there for The Killers but everyone deserves a chance!

Saving my money this year - clearly geared towards young audiences - I don’t know any of the artists or name even one song they perform - you got this year completely wrong BST! 😩

worst line up ever..doesnt look like i will be going this year. Gutted

WTF are they thinking, its like they are trying to come up with the worst possible lineup.

Saving my money this year! Shame, we’ve really enjoyed it for the last few years! Dreadful line ups so far! I won’t be getting an Amex card anytime soon if this is the kind of service you get

When is the next announcement?

Looks like the butch dinner lady from school 😂

I was looking forward to booking and coming back in 2020, sadly after seeing this years line up I wont be

American Express obviously lacks any taste or money! Was it buy 1 and get 4 free... gutted! Oh well football it is then!

Definitely trying for a different demographic. Gutted been every year since The Stones 2013😥

Anyone to be announced for us old folk???? 😡

After seeing barbra and celion last year 2 legends this years line up not so much can you bring Dolly Parton please or some one llike that xx❤️💕

I think this years line up must have been booked by the work experience kid!!

Seriously what the hell. Little Mix and Post Malone headlining? Previous years I've seen Carole King, Roger Waters, Phil Collins and Barbra Streisand. I'm all for bringing the younger acts in but the only group pre-millenium is Pearl Jam.

My mum is 56 and we’ve seen Tom petty, kylie, and stevie nicks. She’s already bought tickets because unlike some of you muppets she hasn’t got her head under a rock and keeps up to date unlike some of you double denim, knitted sweater, narrow minded bell ends. Stay at home with your warm home brew if that’s the attitude you’re going to have

Michael Matthews doesnt look like we will be doin hyde park this year lad line up is shite every day

Should of put little mix , post malone , Kendrick Lamar and taylor swift all on the same day an put some real headliners on.. terrible line up this year

We also think it’s the worst line up for years and sadly won’t get attending either. Get Diana on as the final act to be the Phoenix to rise from the ashes of gloom. Barclaycard must be laughing and Amex left wondering if it was worth it!! Little Mix playing at Kingsholm for a fraction of the price with a fraction of the crowd!!! Very disappointing BST Hyde Park 😢
