Music legends Bob Dylan and Neil Young will headline a major festival in London next year. 

The ‘cultural icons’ will be headlining British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park on July 12, 2019, the organisers have announced. 

The organisers are calling it possibly the ‘biggest event’ in the show's history.

Nobel Prize-winning Dylan is famed for poetic lyricism and experimentation, and Young has created music from similar folk beginnings to becoming the ‘Godfather Of Grunge’.

Both now in their 70s, they are set to headline the AEG Presents event in Hyde Park in 2019 at the two-weekend July festival.

‘Being able to bring together two of the biggest cultural icons for this historic day of music counts as possibly the biggest event we have ever delivered in Hyde Park.’
