Celine Dion just set the bar sky high with a dazzling and diamond-encrusted display of star-power on Friday night. Saturday and Sunday are all set to come out swinging, though. Barclaycard British Summer Time has lined up an incredible array of major international stars this weekend. Today’s headliner is the very wonderful wonderboy himself, supported by a man that can get people dancing on ceilings (and probably treetops). Don’t want to miss anything? What are the support acts? What time are they on stage? What’s the nearest tube? Can you bring in chairs and bags? We’ve got all the info you need right here. SCROLL DOWN FOR MAP.

Also on the smaller Barclaycard Live stage there is Stevie Wonder’s Dance Party line-up which includes Joel Culpepper, Four of Diamonds, The Heavy and The Cuban Brothers throughout the afternoon.
SUNDAY JULY 6: Barbra Streisand will close the weekend in regal style at 8.20pm.
STAGE TIMES: 3.10pm – The Kingdom Choir. 4.45pm – Kris Kristofferson. 6.30pm – Bryan Ferry.
West End Phantom of the Opera leading man Ramin Karimloo is on the playbill but with no stage time confirmed there is a sneaky supsicion he might join Barbra for some magic from the musicals. Also, don’t miss Richard Marx on the Barclaycard Live stage at 5.45pm.
