Radio 1 Big Weekend UK 2020


This event has been and gone.

Radio 1 has announced plans for an online alternative to Big Weekend, which was cancelled due to coronavirus. This alternative show, called Big Weekend UK 2020, will now be held across five virtual 'stages' on the same weekend.

The online line-up will include sets from artists' homes and archive sets from previous editions of the event.

Sam Smith, Biffy Clyro, Anne-Marie, Young T & Bugsey and Rita Ora are the first names that have been announced to be playing new live sets across the weekend.

Over 100 artists will be involved and more acts will be announced over the next few weeks.

Performances will take place across the Radio 1, Radio 1 Dance, Headliner, 1Xtra and the BBC Music Introducing virtual stages.

Please note: All live stream events are subject to change. Not all events listed are live performances by the artist - they also include archived concerts, DJ sets, masterclasses, Q&As and more.
