Twenty One Pilots say: "We are honoured to return to the Radio 1 Big Weekend stage for this year's show and thank Radio 1 for all of their support. The UK is our home away from home and we're thrilled to be invited back. We will see you all in May!"

Foals say: "We're super excited for Big Weekend. We're currently on tour in the US and are primed to get this show in front of the Radio 1 listeners. Middlesbrough, we are ready for you."

Now in its 16th year, Radio 1's Big Weekend kicks off the UK's festival season, as well as taking artists to the cities that may not otherwise host a large scale event like Big Weekend, shining a light on the host city and providing a major boost to the local economy. This year, the BBC is working closely with Middlesbrough Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority to put on Radio 1's Big Weekend with the event estimated to generate £3.5 million to the local area.
