BBC Radio One have announced that Katy Perry will headline their Big Weekend this May.
Artists that have already been confirmed include Kings of Leon, Little Mix and Stormzy. The two day event will be happening over a weekend on the May 27th and 28th. The event will take place in Hull, which is this year’s UK City of Culture.
News broke this morning on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio One breakfast show. Katy Perry said, “Grimmy has told me all about Hull and we’ve already set up a date to the Yorkshire pudding factory. Radio 1’s Big Weekend is always a blast and I’m so happy to be able to make it to Hull alongside the incredible line-up.”
BBC Radio One will continue to add more acts to the line-up and give us more information about tickets as the weeks go by. In the past few years, fans of the show have been able to apply for tickets through a lottery system, with priority given to people who live locally.
