Katy Perry has been revealed as the Saturday night headliner for this summer’s BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend, joining the likes of previously-announced Kings of Leon, Little Mix and Stormzy.

Set to take place in Hull’s Burton Constable Hall across the 27-28th May, Big Weekend 2017 will see over 50,000 music fans enjoy performances from some of the biggest and newest UK and international acts, with the majority of the free tickets going to the residents of Hull and the surrounding areas.

Back in January, Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw said: “I’m super excited for Big Weekend as it kicks off festival season and always has a mega line-up of the best live music. Roll on May – I can’t wait to party in Hull alongside Kings of Leon, Little Mix, Stormzy and loads more!”

Radio 1’s Big Weekend will be broadcast live on Radio 1 and simulcast with a video stream on the Radio 1 website.
