Hyde Park is proving a popular summer venue

The Who and Roger Waters are to headline a new festival in London‘s Hyde Park.

Waters, who memorably rejoined Pink Floyd onstage during Live8 at the same venue last summer, will be performing his old band’s legendary 1973 album ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ as part of his set. It will be his only British performance of the album in 2006.
