Artists / Line-up

Kaiser Chiefs

The new Mayors of Leeds, this 5 piece certainly know how to write a tune, with single 'Ruby' hitting the top spot in February 2007. Even more infectious live, it's hard to resist their canny observations on Northern life over ridiculously catchy tunes.

Radio 1's Big Weekend was fab! the Kaiser's were amazing, we went to the '1 life' stage and got covered in paint and had a great time! Thanx Radio 1! xxx

They were amazing, and Sooooo good live, sounding even better in the flesh. I Couldn't stop bouncing - knew all the words and couldn't believe Ricky was pulled off the stage - he wasn't chuffed from where I was standing! Can't wait for next year!

absoluty brill they were cmazin i love the kaiser chiefs nd i was signing along and so was everone else they were the best ones i think u were amazing love ya xx

Shame their record company can't see the benefit of broadcasting the set in low resolution and compressed sound like so many others. It would increase their record and video sales not damage them.Corporate greed

Lizzi Railton

Its a discrace that we cant watch and listen to there set from Sunday. What a set, the best of the weekend. What are the BBC doing with out licence fees?

Sammie Sharples
No two words about it.Amazing.

Andy Irwin
We had an absolutely fantastic day yesterday. The weather was perfect and the atmosphere was generally lively. I was proud to have radio 1 in my city, it gave us prestonians a lift that we were in dire need of.I thought Mika was particularly good, a born entertainer who worked the crowd and seemed genuinely bowled away by the outpouring of affection he reeived from the crowd.Ricky Wilson stole the show as he always tends to do, I thought 'I predict a riot', predictably, was the best of the day along with Mika's 'Big Girls you are beautiful.'I was impressed with The Enemy, who kicked the day off in the In New Music We Trust tent. Edith introduced them and I have to say, the participation of the DJ's all day was welcome and entertaining, Jo being in particularly good form, coming on stage dressed as a giant rabbit during Mika's set.A fantastic day finished with a rave to Dave Pearce's outdoor arena set, which was superb. Thank you radio 1 is all Preston can say.

fantastic, I predict a riot ...was , the whole set was fabulous, and highroyds, I have even got pics of that place:)

Absolutely awesome performance, 10000+ people in the main tent bopping up and down to the sounds of Ricky & Crew, shouting, cheering, singing and waving. Highlights were Ruby, Riot and chorus of "Oh My God". What a great way to finish the weekend!
