BBC Radio 1 has announced the rest of the line-up for Radio 1's Big Weekend, at Lydiard Park, Swindon on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 May.

Kicking off this year's festival season, the station's annual free flagship event gives 40,000 lucky music fans the chance to enjoy music from four arenas in the park – the Main Stage, the Outdoor Stage, the In New Music We Trust Stage and the BBC Introducing Stage.

In addition to the Main Stage and In New Music We Trust stages whose line-ups have already been confirmed, there's the Outdoor Stage – featuring a world class line-up of DJs and a fantastic line-up of unsigned, undiscovered and under-the-radar musical talent from around the UK on the BBC Introducing stage.

Radio 1's Zane Lowe revealed who will be on the Outdoor Stage during Scott Mills' show last night; and Huw Stephens named the bands that will perform on the BBC Introducing Stage in Zane's programme.
