BBC Radio 1 has announced that international pop star Madonna will headline the station's Big Weekend at Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent, next month.

True to his word, other presenters on the station confirmed acts such as Usher, The Fratellis, The Kooks, Duffy, Scouting For Girls, Goldfrapp, Adele, Nelly, The Feeling and The Hoosiers will all be part of the main stage line-up.

Radio 1's Big Weekend is the station's free flagship event and the UK's biggest free ticketed music festival, taking place on May 10th and 11th over four stages.

Throughout the weekend, Radio 1 DJs Chris Moyles, Jo Whiley, Vernon Kay, Scott Mills, Fearne and Reggie, Edith Bowman, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Judge Jules, Tim Westwood, Annie Mac, Dave Pearce, Greg James, Dick & Dom, Nick Grimshaw and Kelly Osbourne will be introducing the bands on stage, interacting with listeners online and on-site, plus broadcasting live from the event.

Chris Moyles said: "Big? With Madonna it's going to be massive!"
