Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie and Becky Hill are among the artists who took to the stage in front of tens of thousands of music fans at Radio 1's Big Weekend.

The three-day event took place at Coventry's War Memorial Park and was the first time it had taken place in real life since 2019.

Anne-Marie, who performed on the Main Stage, told Radio 1 Newsbeat she thought Big Weekend felt like "the perfect mixture of a festival".

"Let go, forget all your problems and what's going on in your life, and have the best day ever."

Joel Corry said he was "living my dream" after his set.

"I feel like the luckiest person in the world. This has always been my dream, to be on the big stages," he told Newsbeat.

Here are some of the best pictures from the weekend:
