Virtual Festivals - 28 April 2014

BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend, now in its 11th year, takes place this year at Glasgow Green, Glasgow, Scotland from Friday 23 - Sunday 25 May.

Coldplay were confirmed last week for a headline slot on the Saturday night. They will be joined on the Main Stage by One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell, Bastille, Lily Allen and Jake Bugg.

The Main Stage line-up for Sunday (May 25) will consist of sets from Katy Perry, Paolo Nutini, Tinie Tempah, Rita Ora, The 1975, John Newman and The Vamps.

The second stage, titled 'In New Music We Trust Stage', will feature a headline performance from Kasabian on the Sunday night. Many more acts are still to be announced.

Last month the 50,000 free tickets for this year's event were snapped up in just over half an hour on the morning of release.

Zane Lowe will reveal the rest of the line-up on his Radio 1 show tonight (from 7pm).

Big Weekend, which will be produced in partnership with Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and streamed on the Radio 1 website.
