Tiesto and Martin Garrix have just been added to the bill for BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend Event in Glasgow from Friday 23rd May. The Dutch pair — about to debut nwew shows on the station — join Radio 1 regulars Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and Danny Howard, who were already announced.
Radio 1's Big Weekend comes from a different city in the UK every year, and has settled on the biggest city in Scotland this year in advance of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in July and August.
The free event in George Square is for 14,000 ticket-holders, with tickets allocated geographically — 95% have gone to people living in Scotland.
“I can’t wait to party with everyone in Glasgow at Radio 1’s Big Weekend!” said Tiesto. “See you all soon.”
Martin Garrix said: “I'm super super excited to be part of Radio 1's Big Weekend in Glasgow this year. The support from Radio 1 on my tracks was amazing the last year and I'm looking forward to playing for my fans in the UK again!”
Radio 1’s Big Weekend will be broadcast live on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra and streamed online here and on mobile. It will also be broadcast on BBC Three with highlights from acts across the weekend.
