Larna del ray might be one as she is doing a big tour soon 

I’d think she’d be a good one to perform at the festival. For coverage of dance and future sounds stages it would be good to have Alyx Holcomb and Charlie Tee there doing some to raise their profiles

Sigrid, Charli XCX, Mø, Aitch, Olivia Rodrigo, Jax Jones feel are possible. Wetleg, Camilla Cabello, Mimi Webb and Becky Hill seem possible on the line up think it will be potentially one of the stations most gender balanced. George Ezra maybe. Think will have some good first time players

Ed Sheeran performing on Saturday of Big Weekend. 

They are simulcasting the announcement on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, I believe this is the first time they’ve simulcast on the relevant local station? Phil Upton, the DJ on CWR, faded out the song and they’ve went back to their normal show

Ed Sheeran is arguably one of the biggest acts of the last year, whether people like him or not, so it's good they've managed to get him on the bill. Looking forward to seeing what the specialist lineup is, especially given some criticism of the gender balance on the main stage.

So seems like Ed is the big Artist opener it would be good considering there hasn’t been a big weekend since 2019 to have a first time opener and maybe previous performer but never headlined the festival. I do think a band like Foals to headline over Calvin Harris headlining the Saturday and at least having that mix of having one or two female/nonbinary names.

Wonder if the Radio 1 Academy thing will return?

Another Big Weekend announcement today. Can't work out if staggering it out works, think outsiders to the station are less likely to follow two days of announcements than regular listeners. I assume that's who they want on board.
