Camperdown Park in Dundee, Scotland, will host 80,000 people for the three-day BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend on May bank holiday weekend.

Big Weekend was originally set to take place in Dundee in 2020 but was cancelled due to Covid-19. It will be the second year the event has taken place as an in-person festival since the pandemic, having taken place virtually in 2020 and 2021, before Coventry hosted it last year.

Lewis Capaldi, Niall Horan, and The 1975 are some of the artists already announced to play. Further information including the full line-up will be announced in the coming months.

The BBC is working with Dundee City Council on the event. Council leader John Alexander (pictured left) said, “This is an incredible opportunity for Dundee and we are looking forward to hosting such an exciting event at Camperdown Park after the disappointment of 2020’s cancellation.

“Radio 1’s Big Weekend will showcase Dundee not only to the tens of thousands of people who attend, but also the millions who will watch and listen through the BBC. We expect a huge economic boost for the area as the event has been worth millions of pounds to previous host locations.”
