When her socials came back to life at the end of last year we knew big things were on the way from Miley Cyrus and she has not disappointed! Returning with smash single Nothing Breaks Like a Heart alongside Mark Ronson, performing at the Grammys with Shawn Mendes and a new album reportedly on the way. We can't wait to see what she brings to Big Weekend.

THE 1975

With BRIT Awards, arena tours and the massive album A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships under their belts, The 1975 are on top of the world right now! We have no doubt they'll put on a show to remember in Middlesbrough.


After their show-stopping performance at the Teen Awards Little Mix are back to perform at Big Weekend for the third time. They've come a long way since they made their Big Weekend debut in Derry-Londonderry back in 2013. Get ready Mixers the girls are coming to Middlesbrough and it's going to be EPIC!

So much love for these ladies in Hull - they gave it right back with a fantastic set.


We've been keeping tabs on Khalid since before he placed 4th in 2018's BBC Sound Of. He graced us with a visit to the Live Lounge last year when he performed a breathtaking version of Tracy Chapman's Fast Car. We are delighted to have him join the line-up and we're certain that his stunning voice and infectious smile will leave the Big Weekend crowd beaming.


Since breaking through with her infectious single Finders Keepers she has been on an unstoppable course to pop stardom. Expect singalongs and a lot more when she takes the stage in Middlesbrough.


We couldn't be more excited to have Zara Larsson joining us at this year's Big Weekend. The Swedish singer has been a regular visitor to Radio 1 over the years including a performance at Big Weekend in Hull in 2017. Expect good vibes aplenty when Zara turns up!
