It feels kinda weird discussing festival season when hot water bottles and hot chocolates are still very much a staple in our lives, but Nick Grimshaw just announced loads of well exciting details about Radio 1's Big Weekend 2016 on the Breakfast Show and guess what? This year it's all goin' down in *drumroll for dramatic effect * Exeter. Hollaaa.
Yup - on May 28th and 29th approximately a gazillion music lovers will descend upon Powderham Castle to shimmy about to the likes of Coldplay (ooh), Bring Me The Horizon (aah) and Chase & Status (gah.)
Tickets to the event are actually free af, but they're not available till like March or something (we can't remember the date Nick just read out, but we'll no doubt update you when we remember) and loads more acts are set to be announced over the next few hours/weeks/months. HOORAY.
Acts confirmed to play the festival so far are:
- Bring Me The Horizon
- Chase & Status
So kinda thin on the ground right now, but all VERY EXCITING no? We'll add more as and when it happens, folks.
What d'ya make of that, then? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box below, please and ta very much.
