Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park: Blue Sky Snaps!

As BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park approaches, we're offering YOU the chance to be part of Chris Evans' warm up for our headline act - Electric Light Orchestra.

Before the iconic band take to the stage for their first festival performance in 28 years, we want to give you lovely Radio 2 listeners the chance to celebrate the end of summer by sharing your photos featuring 'Mr Blue Sky' on the big screen.

What do I have to do?

Just email your 'Blue Sky Snaps' to or share them on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #R2BlueSky

We want selfies with friends, photos of families enjoying their holidays, pics of your pets out in the garden. Be as creative as you like - just make sure we can see Mr Blue Sky somewhere in the photo!

And remember - the sooner you share your photo the better than chance it has of being featured so get snapping and sending! Photos submitted after midnight on Saturday 13th September will not be accepted.

Where will I see my photo?

We'll be showcasing a selection of 'Blue Sky Snaps' on the big screen at the festival which you'll be able to see in the park or on our live stream and then after the festival we'll be using the very best pictures as part of some special online memorabilia which will be made available in 2mail on Wednesday 16 September.
