Big Weekend Hero

The BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend

The line up for Radio 1's Big Weekend has been released and it's officially going to be incredible 🤩

Big names like Rihanna, JAY-Z, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish, and One Direction are some of the latest to be added to the line up, and will be performing remotely for the first time ever this Bank Holiday weekend from Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th.

Young T and Bugsy had this to say about being included in the line up: 

“Big up Radio 1 for including us on this year’s Big Weekend lineup. It’s gonna be a special one and we’re gonna be bringing the vibes to you, wherever you are!”

The Stockport band Blossoms will also be featured in the line up, but to be honest they've had plenty of practice with their remote covers, and have been posting them for weeks on Twitter!

The band tweeted:

Check out a few of their covers below:


How does an isolation festival work?

Each 'stage' will have its own BBC Sounds web page, and will not only feature performances from artist's homes, it'll also include archived footage from previous Big Weekend performances from big names like Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. You can find the archived footage on the Headliner Stage! 

Treat it like a real festival

Get glammed up for the event, wear that outfit you've been saving for the real world for far too long, grab your favourite drink(s) and enjoy the music!
