It doesn’t seem that long ago that majority of us were moaning about not getting tickets to The Radio 1 Big Weekend. This year, the events held in Norwich on 23rd and 24th of May and today, the line-up was finally revealed! Unfortunately, Nick Grimshaw lost his voice so couldn’t make the announcements, however Scott Mills stood in for him and told excited listeners who they would be seeing perform live next month. Last years line-up included massive artists, such as Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams, so how does this years measure up? In case you missed it, here’s the full 2015 line-up…
