Radio 1 presenters Greg James and Clara Amfo are to host BBC Three’s coverage of Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
Greg, host of drivetime and Clara, new host of mornings, will be at the event in Norwich on May 23rd and 24th with live interviews from performers from the Main Stage and In New Music We Trust Stage.
As well as BBC Three’s coverage, Radio 1’s Big Weekend will be broadcast live on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra, streamed in vision at bbc.co.uk/radio1 and on the BBC Red Button. Performances will also be available to watch on demand after the weekend on Radio 1’s channel in BBC iPlayer.
Greg James says: “It’s Radio 1’s biggest event, so for them to let my stupid face be all over it is a privilege as ever. Can’t wait to work with Clara too, she’s a gem. Bring on the summer!”
Clara Amfo says: “Last year in Glasgow was my first time at Radio 1’s Big Weekend – I had an amazing time and can’t wait to top the experience this year in Norwich. I’ve been a long-time fan of BBC Three’s coverage of live music events, so to be a part of it for the first time is such a joy. I’m really looking forward to hosting with Greg, watching and interviewing the big line-up of artists!”
