Frontman Eddie Vedder, guitarists Mike McCready and Stone Gossard, bassist Jeff Ament and drummer Matt Cameron, have been announced as headliners on July 9 and 10.
The rock group will be joined by Pixies on the Friday and Idles the following day in London’s Hyde Park.
BST Hyde Park tweeted that previous ticket holders will be ‘given priority access to tickets’ for next year.
This year’s headliners would have included Taylor Swift, Post Malone, Kendrick Lamar and Duran Duran until the festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
British Summer Time would have been Duran Duran’s first London show in five years.
BST Hyde Park said ‘with a heavy heart’ in a statement at the time: ‘After closely following government actions and statements during the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as consulting with our partners The Royal Parks and other agencies, we have concluded that this is the only possible outcome.
‘This would have been the eighth year of this event and we were looking forward to putting on amazing, unique shows for hundreds of thousands of fans in the world’s greatest outdoor venue. But safety always comes first.’
It is currently unknown if the other headliners will also be returning for 2021.
Since it began in 2013, BST Hyde Park has seen the likes of Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Black Sabbath and Eric Clapton take to the stage.
It was far from the only music event to be axed in 2020 amid the pandemic.
Glastonbury, Coachella, SXSW, Download UK and Radio 1’s Big Weekend were unable to go ahead out of safety concerns.
