As well as BBC Three’s coverage, Radio 1’s Big Weekend will be broadcast live on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra, streamed in vision at bbc.co.uk/radio1and on the BBC Red Button. Performances will also be available to watch on demand after the weekend on Radio 1’s channel in BBC iPlayer.
Greg James says: “It’s Radio 1’s biggest event, so for them to let my stupid face be all over it is a privilege as ever. Can’t wait to work with Clara too, she’s a gem. Bring on the summer!”
Clara Amfo says: “Last year in Glasgow was my first time at Radio 1’s Big Weekend – I had an amazing time and can’t wait to top the experience this year in Norwich. I’ve been a long-time fan of BBC Three’s coverage of live music events, so to be a part of it for the first time is such a joy. I’m really looking forward to hosting with Greg, watching and interviewing the big line-up of artists!”
