1 – What time will Faith No More be on stage?
Faith No More will take to the stage at 5.15 according to the BST Barclaycard festival app. And a 75-minute set is more than we could reasonably expect given the strict Hyde Park curfew and the fact that Soundgarden and Black Sabbath play afterwards.
2 – Are tickets really on sale for £2.50?
Some reduced-price tickets for workers at the event were inadvertently put on sale to the general public last week due to the leak of a link. But that loophole has now been closed.
“@BSTHydePark A leaked staff offer meant the public could purchase reduced tickets. This has now stopped. Tickets purchased remain valid.”

3 – Will there be new music?
This is a hard one to call. Faith No More will be playing a limited set, playing their first concert in 2 years, playing third on the bill, playing in the early evening sun so it would not seem the most apposite time to unveil new music. But then again in the Faith No More universe, what better time?
4 – Will they play this?
5 – Or will we see some of this?
Sabbath usually play War Pigs as the first song of their set so we might even get an FNM-Sabbath mash-up. (Is James Hetfield still in England or off hunting bears?
6 – Will we seem some stage-sharing like this?
When Faith No More and Soundgarden shared the bill at the L’Amour club back in March 1990, they literally shared the stage as Faith No More finished their set.
7 – Are tickets still on sale?
Yes. And you can get them here.
Oh – and as asked by fernetpunker in Comments – there is no livestreaming of the festival unfortunately.
