Radio 1's Hackney Weekend

They don’t call it a Big Weekend for nothing!!

But this year, the epic Radio 1 two-day action will be super-sizing as it transforms Hackney Marshes into the UK's biggest free ticketed music event - Radio 1's Hackney Weekend.

The extravaganza on 23rd and 24th June sees Fearne hosting live as the Radio 1 team bring music from over 100 incredible artists to the masses.

Fearne will be live on BBC Three and BBC HD with Greg James from 7pm on Saturday, covering the day’s events in the build-up to Saturday’s epic Headliner Jay-Z.

She will then be reunited with good pal Reggie Yates on Radio 1 at 4pm on Sunday to bring us music from Tinie Tempah and Lana Del Ray.

At 7pm, the busy lady will be back - this time with Greg James on BBC Three, where acts will include Florence and the Machine, Jessie J, Plan B, Ben Howard and the live performance from Headliner Rihanna...


Highlights from what is set to be an awesome weekend will be shown on Monday 25th June at 7pm on BBC Three and again at 1.30am on Tuesday 26th June presented by Fearne and Greg.
