Radio 1’s Big Weekend - the station’s annual flagship event - will take place in Glasgow in 2014.

Over 60,000 lucky music fans will be able to enjoy performances across the weekend of 23-25 May.

On Friday night Radio 1 will be getting the Big Weekend party started by broadcasting live from the iconic George Square in Glasgow. Radio 1's Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Zane Lowe and Danny Howard will be joined by some of the world’s biggest DJ's.

Saturday and Sunday will be similar to previous Big Weekend events, with a main stage, an In New Music We Trust tent and a BBC Introducing stage at Glasgow Green.
