Radio One Big Weekend....

So the BBC weren't about to let lockdown get in the way of the musical start to your summer ... Big Weekend will go ahead this May Bank Holiday weekend as planned (Friday 22 – Sunday 24 May 2020), but with a crucial difference: this year’s event takes place remotely for the first time.

Big Weekend UK 2020 will bring all the festival feels with over 50 brand new live sets recorded by artists from their own homes, as well as bringing back some of the most memorable performances from Big Weekends gone by for you to listen to Radio 1 and BBC Sounds, and watch on BBC iPlayer. 

Performances will take place across five virtual stages: The Radio 1 Stage, the Radio 1 Dance Stage, the Headliner Stage, the 1Xtra Stage and the BBC Music Introducing Stage. 

Tune in this bank holiday weekend for some great LIVE music from the safety of your living room. Ashdown artists Biffy Clyro will be taking to the Radio One stage at 14:30 on Sunday. As well as many more performances from other Ashdown artists as well as some old footage being shared including the mighty Foo Fighters Headline set from 2015 being aired at 21:00 on Sunday on the Headliner Stage…

For more info head to the BBC website. Are you ready for your first virtual festival? Will this be the new normal? We hope not…
