The line-up includes performances from Rihanna, Harry Styles, Miley Cyrus, The 1975, Sam Smith, Foals, Lizzo, Dua Lipa and many more. The full performance schedule can be found below.

Though dependent on changes to restrictions in the UK, Radio 1's Big Weekend of Live Music will be designed for fans to enjoy with friends and family in parks, on beaches, in pub gardens or simply from the comfort of their own homes. The Radio 1 DJ family will be doing just that, coming together in person for the first time in over a year to host the event across the weekend. Performances will be broadcast on Radio 1 with full sets available on BBC Sounds. Fans will also be able to watch a selection of tracks on Radio 1's iPlayer and YouTube channels, with a curated stream on iPlayer featuring select performances and artist interviews from Saturday - Monday.

In the build-up to the event, Radio 1 will be running an extensive outreach programme designed to give young people an introduction to working in the creative industries. Full details of the outreach programme will be unveiled soon.

Radio 1 Breakfast host, Greg James says: "When we announced our Big Weekend plans earlier this year, I panicked that someone had forgotten to book any artists. Turns out they just kept it from me because they know I can't keep a secret. It's a nice surprise though because this is an incredible line-up. Hopefully it'll be hotter than 8 degrees by then so we'll be able to enjoy it all outside with our mates and stop dressing like we're going on an Arctic expedition."

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of Radio 1, says: "For Radio 1's Big Weekend this year we're going to be bringing back what young people have been sorely missing over the past year, with four days packed full of live music to be enjoyed with friends and family. The new performances we have lined up are incredibly special, with the artists themselves bringing tonnes of energy and creativity, and we can't wait to share them with our audiences across the May bank holiday."
