BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

Recommended Posts

Last year, Big Weekend had 9 acts on each stage so still plenty more to be added to all days including (I hope) a decent act above Sam Smith in Swansea!

Hi. I am thinking about going to the one in Belfast. It got a good line up for that price

Do you think the sets are gonna be as short as it was on the big weekend?

Kasabian only played 7 songs last year and Kol who were headliners played 13 songs.

There's rumours Arctics are announcing their album on Thursday... might just be coincidence, also might not be true :lol: But seen it a couple of places now.

The line-up has now been split to show the breakdown for the two stages

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4bzvTKWBMzGGdDCxfcWhgyd/the-biggest-weekend-swansea

8 acts listed for Saturday on the main stage but only 7 for the Sunday. Is the Sunday headliner still to be announced? 

Barely, anything announced for the second stage yet. I'm going on the Sunday so hoping for a strong second stage as the line-up is doing nothing for me at the moment!

 

edit: looking at last years line-up, there were 9 acts on the two main stages on each day.

No second stage for Coventry on Sunday even though its 5k more capacity than Monday which has two stages?

I kind of feel like the Ed/Sam situation, the Saturday people just got 'lucky' if you want to call it that, that Ed can't play last and it'd be bizarre having someone small on last. Pretty convinced we have Sunday headliner in Taylor, though I would be well up for a big Sunday opener!

One more in Belfast..

 

Been keeping an eye on this with tickets still available, 7 on main stage Saturday 8 Sunday... think Beck will definitely headline? Pretty decent second stage Sunday with Shame and Superorganism too.

It's Arcade Fire, surely. Playing Dublin on Friday, have been practicing in Belfast. Used in the promo vids. Too much of a coincidence.

Yes of course, my bad! Arcade Fire would be hard to resist, supposed to be at that Neighbourhood Weekender on the Sunday so it'll depend if I can convince the other half!
