BBC Radio 1 broadcasts live from Burton Constable Hall, Hull, on the opening day of Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2017. The station’s annual live music event, and Europe’s largest free ticketed festival, will see some of the biggest and freshest UK and international acts entertain the crowds for a weekend of incredible live music.
A stellar line-up of artists, including headliner Katy Perry, as well as the likes of Biffy Clyro, Emeli Sandé, Galantis, Imagine Dragons, James Arthur and more, are all on Saturday’s bill and will perform across one of the event’s three stages - the Main Stage, Where it Begins Stage and BBC Introducing Stage.
This year, highlights will be broadcast on BBC Four on Sunday 28 May. Greg James will present performances from 8pm on wards. Other coverage will be available live and on demand via BBC Radio 1's iPlayer Channel and at bbc.co.uk/radio1.
