Who will be Big Weekend 2022 special guests?


Recommended Posts


Ditto Two Door Cinema Club & Sean Paul who hadn’t been on playlist rotation for a good while prior to the time of 2019’s big weekend.

A lot of it will depend on who the organisers Festival Republic & The BBC can get booked & who is touring at the time & indeed who is available that weekend.

I mean i think at the time those two acts may have had radio play with new single. I mean Dave does have good chance popular on Radio 1 and there tends to be an act 1 Xtra would play out one performance of

That would be good - the two TBA’s leave it a bit of guess work for which day to go for! Book Saturday and know who you’re getting or Sunday and perhaps end up with the best line up (or not!)

She lives mostly in America Adele but no longer an import could it be an artist like Dua Lipa. I mean Adele would be big act that still gets a lot of radio 1 play and has a mass appeal beyond the station and may seek interest of making it a BBC One special for her performance. 

If it wasn’t for Glastonbury the dead obvious one would be Billie Eilish. Contenders may include Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga a while since they performed. The Weeknd think the station would like him returning considering he’s put out few projects since last time.  BTS less likely but a lot of social media interest when comes to radio play on radio 1 of the act and given a BBC One special. Think when future pop lands it would be case that on Mollie Kings show may play some K-Pop and some non-western pop acts

Harry Styles has just said his new single is out Friday. I suspect if he is on the bill, they'll time the announcement around this publicity. 

Wonder if he’ll pop up on Breakfast plugging it. Look forward to listening to his new single.

Well at least we've got a guess right for once! Capital narrowly pipped them with the Summertime Ball announcement. Assumed he would be at Big Weekend after that!

He seems to be very much a big deal for festival bookings atm, Capital have announced him as their main billing for the Summertime Ball as well. Pà Salieu and Rina Sawayama have been added to the Future Sounds stage on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

It sounds like someone might have dropped out, there seemed to be mixed messaging about how many other acts were being added to the line-up and Charli XCX seems to have swapped stages.
