Festival Crowd Header

Historic Royal Palaces and IMG are delighted to announce Tears For Fears and The Jacksons as the next headliners for Hampton Court Palace Festival 2019.

New-wave legends Tears For Fears will be making their Hampton Court Palace Festival debut on 18 and 19 June. One of the biggest acts of the 80s, audience members can expect a night of the band’s greatest hits from their formidable collection, including Everybody Wants To Rule The World, Shout, and Mad World.

Pop royalty The Jacksons will also grace the Hampton Court Palace Festival stage for the very first time on 7 June. Having sold more than 100 million records worldwide, 2019 will mark 50 years since I Want You Back was released. The Jacksons’ concert will be a true celebration of the group’s incredible back catalogue of a half-century, perform iconic hits such as ABC, I’ll Be There and The Love You Save.

Now in its 27th year, Hampton Court Palace Festival is a series of truly special and unique open-air concerts. Artists perform in a 3,000-seat auditorium in Base Court, set against the backdrop of Henry VIII’s magnificent Tudor Palace. Attendees will arrive at the sumptuous Palace Gardens to enjoy a spot of picnicking. This year, the festival’s picnics will be provided by Fortnum & Mason for the very first time. Crafted with the very best seasonal ingredients fresh from Fortnum’s famous Food Halls, and packed with summer-ready tipples, four picnic options will be available for guests to enjoy. Picnics will be available to pre-order from this Friday when purchasing tickets to the festival. 

The festival also offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate special occasions in a prestigious setting, with champagne available to purchase from the festival’s Champagne Partner, Champagne PIAFF. Exclusive dining and corporate entertainment packages in the Palace’s magnificent state apartments are also available, ensuring a truly unforgettable experience.

Already announced to perform at Hampton Court Palace Festival is Kylie Minogue. General tickets for her concerts sold out in record time, but VIP and corporate packages are available to purchase for her concerts.
