Radio 1’s Big Weekend adds more names to the bill

Radio 1’s Big Weekend have added more big names to this years line-up.

Mumford & Sons, Iggy Azalea, The Weeknd, Nick Jonas and Jess Glynne are all set to perform at Exeter’s Powderham Castle on May 28 and 29.

“I’ve been waiting for you guys to announce it so that I could tell everybody because everyone keeps asking me when I’m coming to visit,” said Iggy.

“I knew that I was coming over for this but I couldn’t tell anyone, and I’m very bad at keeping secrets, so I’m glad this is one less secret to keep. This will be the first time that I’m going to come back for a while.”

They join the likes of previously announced acts including Coldplay, Bring Me the Horizon, The 1975, Ellie Goulding and Years & Years.

“I’m thrilled, over the moon,” said Nick Jonas.​ “I’ve always wanted to go, and this is one of the best shows of the year so I’m thrilled to be a part of the line-up. It’s going to be a good time, we’ll bring the party with us.​”

Radio 1’s Big Weekend is Europe’s biggest free ticketed event, but you’ll have to live in Exeter, Teignbridge or the surrounding area to be in with a good chance of nabbing a ticket.
