According to reports, BBC Radio One’s Big Weekend will return to Dundee in 2023.
Last year, the festival headed to Coventry with a huge line-up, including headliners Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Sam Fender, George Ezra, Lorde, Fontaine D.S. and Sigrid.
According to The Courier, from May 26 to May 28 this year, the event will be held in Dundee for the second time.
After hosting the event in 2006, the Scottish city was again due to host a Big Weekend in 2020 before the event was cancelled due to COVID.
After the event unexpectedly moved to Coventry in 2022 after a two-year hiatus caused by the pandemic, this summer the festival will be held in the city’s Camperdown Park.
Official confirmation or details about the line-up for BBC Radio One Big Weekend 2023 have not yet been received.
Radio 1’s big weekends were held virtually in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. The 2019 edition was held in Middlesbrough with the participation of Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, The 1975 and others.
At the 2021 event, Radio 1 broadcast a “Big Weekend of Live Music” instead of its usual festival. Artists such as Coldplay, Ed Sheeran and Wolf Alice recorded special sets for the online event, which were then broadcast on BBC Radio 1, BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds.
A host of new and emerging artists, including the likes of Enny, Bad Boy Chiller Crew and Kynsy, have also recorded remote live performances for Radio 1 Big Weekend 2021.
