Radio 1's Big Weekend

BBC Radio 1 has announced that a host of DJs – like Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Danny Howard and so forth – will broadcast live on the station from Glasgow’s George Square on 23 May, in so doing ‘kicking off’ Radio 1’s free Big Weekend festival in the city. 14,000 free tickets to this specific part of the Weekend will be released this Friday via the Radio 1 site, if you fancy registering to win a pair.

Staying on a Big Weekend tip, the festival’s line-up now comes with added Pharrell Williams and The 1975, since both names got announced by that Nick Grimshaw the other day. Pharrell’s hat has this to say about it: “I am so excited and honoured to be playing Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Over the years I’ve been in awe of the amazing world-class talent at the event and to know that I will be a part of it this year is so humbling. Can’t wait to see you guys!”
