There are so many ways to follow Big Weekend in Middlesbrough.

Online, on the move, wherever you may be – here's how you can stay up-to-date with all the best and biggest sets.

1. Hit play on the LIVE stream on BBC iPlayer!

That’s right, you can see your favourite acts perform live from the comfort of your own home, on the move, or wherever you happen to be. Want to watch Miley Cyrus while you’re in the gym? Easy. Fancy catching The 1975 while you’re making dinner? You do you!

If you’re not in Middlesbrough head to BBC iPlayer at 19:30 on Friday evening to follow all of the action!
