BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend Memories

 BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend logo

This May, Powderham Castle hosted Radio 1’s Big Weekend and welcomed 50,000 music lovers to enjoy live performances from some of the biggest UK and international acts.

Hosted by Radio 1 DJs, the Big Weekend is Europe’s largest free ticketed festival, with an unrivalled reputation. Performers included Iggy Azalea, Craig David, Ellie Goulding, twenty one pilots and the widely-anticipated ‘homecoming’ performance from Coldplay, who lit up the deer park in a plume of multi-coloured confetti and spectacular fireworks.

To keep the spirit of the Big Weekend alive, we would love for you to share your memories of the Big Weekend with us. Post pictures or a message to our Facebook page, tweet us and we’ll include your memories on our website or social media pages.
