BBC Radio 1 has announced that its annual Big Weekend will take place in Norwich later this year. The station’s flagship event will be held in the city’s Earlham Park on 23-24 May. Seven time Grammy winner Taylor Swift is the first act confirmed for Europe’s biggest free ticketed music event.
“They are rowdy, insane, in the best way – there seems to be a lot of jumping, which I love,” the singer said of the UK crowd.
“Everyone talks about the festivals in England being the best ones you can go to. I feel like I’ve been missing out – I’m really excited.”
The full line-up for the event and ticketing information will be announced on Radio 1 over the coming months. Last year’s event in Glasgow was opened by One Direction and headlined by Coldplay and Katy Perry.
We certainly can’t wait for the Radio 1’s Big Weekend!
