Radio 1 covers Edinburgh Fringe

BBC Radio 1 is making its debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year, with afternoon presenter Scott Mills providing coverage from Scotland.

But kicking off the UK festival season is Radio 1's Big Weekend. The station's flagship event returns on 9th and 10th of May at Lydiard Park in Swindon.

The station has also announced details of their major UK festivals coverage including Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, T in the Park and Creamfields.

Throughout the summer BBC Introducing will be hosting stages alongside Radio 1 at the major festivals – including T in the Park for the first time – giving unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar music artists and DJs discovered across the BBC a chance to play.

Alongside the festival mayhem, Radio 1 is setting off on a Young UK Summer Tour with presenter Greg James and the Switch team visiting towns and cities across the UK.

Radio 1 will also be broadcasting from some of the biggest UK dates in 2009 including stadium shows from Take That and Coldplay.

And the station also returns to specialist music events including the Underage Festival, the Warehouse Project, Eurosonic and Sonar.

Jason Carter, Editor, BBC Live Music and Events, says: "It's a packed year again for Radio 1 – with Big Weekend, a presence at all the major festivals and lots of activity aimed at the younger end of our audience. We're also delighted to be visiting the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time.

"Throughout the year we'll continue to support a range of new music and emerging artists as well providing a platform for live music."
