Emma Cusimano
I have just returned from the best free festival in Preston... I would really recommend people to go tomorrow as i really enjoyed a brilliant day out with 2 of my friends....Also JK and Joel... 2 cracking and funny presenters...Fearne and Reggie were also there along with Vernon Kay and Chris Moyles ! ! ! I saw many bands whilst i was there and we got to stand very close to the front...i got many wonderfull pictures of many of my favourite stars, and i am glad that something like Radio 1's BIG WEEKEND has come to Preston.

Simon Robinson
Shoot The Runner was amaizing live and have never had the pleasure to enjoy music like it untill now thank you Kasabian and BBC Radio 1

Nikki Hadley
Kasabian rocked! Saw them at V last year and they were immense I just can't get enough of them. The set was amazing every song just gets you going more and more. Thanks radio one we had a great day xx

Sarah
I would just like to say to Katie who wrote this.."I wasn't very impressed with Kasabian at all. They weren't very good live and the guy in the stripy top is a total idiot. Get over yourself mate!Katie"...ARE YOU BLIND, DEAF...OR JUST STUPID?? Kasabian are absolutely AMAZING!!In every generationthe odd truly amazing band comes along, who aren't afraid to do things a bit differently. Bands who dictate what will happen in music. This is rock 'n' roll after all. We want spirit, charisma a big mouth and a bigger soulTHIS IS KASABIAN...and tom("the guy in the stripy top") is awsome. You are the idiot in this situation!

matt

Steve
To be honest I was not much of a Kasabian fan and was only really hanging around in between Fratellis and Razorlight, however they turned out to be my highlight of the weekend. Amazing song after song and really performed well top class front man. The same I cannot say about Razorlight sadly but I'll be looking out for whenever I can see Kasabian again!

Linda Davies
Kasabian RULE!!!!! Think more tickets should have been made available to people further away from Preston instead of people in Preston recieving tickets for both nights also people selling tickets on Ebay should of had them cancelled and those tickets distributed to people who wanted them and didn't receive any at all.

Jules

The best set of the day by far. The fratellis were a great warm up to Kasabian. Razorlight good after. But Kasabian made my day best band in the whole day shame i mised sun with kaiser chiefs. Nice one Kasabian you now how to entertain a crown shame not many others do.

Me and my mate were stood right at front for this, and seeing as we had been stood there since 11 45 it was gettin hot and our legs were hurting but Kasabian made us forget all that. Tom from Kasabian was superb, the crowd was brilliant even with all the jumping up and down and some sorta moshing :Pbrillant atmosphere

Best band of the day by far, top set, got the crowd going, brilliant although i cant believe they were not headlining beacause they are far better to watch live than Sissor sisters and razorlight put together.

Kerry
Best set of the day. They are just awesome.

frank kirk
Energy , Skill and utter Perfection - I must be talking about the Amazing Kasabian . I did not stop dancing and jumping and singing(i don,t even know the words of some songs)all through the performance ,as most of the crowd.Definetely the top act of the mainstage by miles . I did not want the music to finished i was having such great fun . Kasabian should have been the Headliners at the Mainstage.They would have been a perfect act to finish a Perfect and Beautiful Saturday at Radio 1 Big Weekend.I had an Amazing time!!!
