Radio 1's Hackney Weekend

Hackney Weekend has grown out of Radio 1's Big Weekend. These in turn grew from the incredibly popular One Big Sundays - free open-air shows with top pop acts. There will be live music across six stages, with a Main stage, Dance Arena, 1Xtra stage, In New Music We Trust stage, Outdoor stage and BBC Introducing stage there is a varied mix of UK and international artists - from household names, to brand new artists championed by Radio 1 DJs. As 2012 is a very special Olympic year, it feels right to celebrate the occasion and the location of Hackney with a enormous party - the UK's biggest free ticketed music event.
