The unlikely pairing came together midway through Williams’ set at the British Summer Time show on Saturday, the lone UK festival appearance for the ‘Rock DJ’ singer in 2024.

“It’s the double act you didn’t know you needed in your life!” exclaimed Williams as the song began.

Dyer took up the cockney spoken-words parts of the 1994 song, first made famous by Phil Daniels, with Robbie taking the place of Damon Albarn and the pair being backed by the Coldstream Guards. Watch fan-captured footage of the performance here:

Seeing Robbie Williams and Danny Dyer singing Parklife to 60,000 people wasn’t on my 2024 bingo card, but there we are

Dyer had also joined Williams during the show’s opening video sequence, in which the ‘Angels’ singer is seen marching backstage, flanked by the Football Factory actor, as well as SupergrassGaz Coombes.

Robbie Williams sure knew how to make an entrance on stage at Hyde Park tonight – with added Danny Dyer and Gaz Coombes… @BSTHydePark @robbiewilliams @GazCoombes

Coombes also graced the stage during Williams’ set, where the two performed a version of the Britpop band’s 1995 crowd-pleaser ‘Alright’.

Robbie introduced the performance by sharing a memory of first meeting Coombes at Glastonbury in the ‘90s, saying he had “a lovely soul and a lovely spirit”, before describing him as “one of Britain’s best songwriters”.

Watch video of the whole hit-packed set below, or scroll to 35:30 to find Williams and Coombes’ collaboration, immediately followed by Dyer’s ‘Parklife’.

Among other performers during Williams’ Hyde Park residency were SealKate NashSoft Play, Shaun Ryder’s Black Grape, James Smith, Ellur, Davina Michelle, Ryan Gibb and Ben Kidson.

In other news, Williams recently reflected on his awkward and “rude” encounter with Cher, which left him “headbutting the wall” afterwards.

Elsewhere, the singer previously revealed that he has “written loads of songs” for a new album and is feeling “full of purpose and loving life”.

The comments shared by the former Take That member arrive after he shed light on his history of self-harm and depression, and encouraged people to be more “careful” about the comments they make towards those in the public eye.

Williams also confirmed that his dance side project Lufthaus – which sees him join forces with Flynn Francis and Tim Metcalfe – would be making their UK live debut at Creamfields 2024.
