Radio 1 takes the Big Weekend to Glasgow

Scotland is the destination for the next BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend, Nick Grimshaw announced on-air this morning from Glasgow.

The station’s annual flagship event will be attended by over 60,000 people when it takes place at Glasgow Green over the Bank Holiday Weekend of May 24th and 25th.

Radio 1 will be announcing acts over the next few weeks, with tickets being made available in March. Paolo Nutini joined Grimmy this morning to be announced as the first act to perform, and the station also confirmed Rita Ora as one of the first artists.

Nick Grimshaw says, “So excited to announce that we are going to be partying in Glasgow this summer! There is a rule that the further north you go, the more fun the gig will be so I’m psyched to be in Scotland this year. Big Weekend always has the best line up and kicking things off are Rita and Paolo. I can’t wait!”

During the week leading up to Radio 1’s Big Weekend, the station hopes to inspire local 16-19 year olds by inviting them to attend a series of radio shows, masterclasses and Q&A’s from Saturday 10th – Friday 16th May.

Jason Carter, Head of Live Music and Events, Popular Music says: “Radio 1’s Big Weekend is the biggest event in the station’s calendar and we are delighted that Glasgow will host the event for the very first time in 2014. It’s shaping up to be a stunning artist line-up, and the City will no doubt be buzzing across the weekend.”
