The line-up for Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2019 in Middlesbrough just got bigger with Twenty One Pilots, Dave and Foals being added to it.
It takes place in Stewart Park on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May and will see an audience of 64,000 enjoying the event.
Following the success of their most recent album Trench, Grammy award-winning US band Twenty One Pilots will now be playing, as will British rapper Dave who has topped the UK charts with his debut album Psychodrama.
Brit award and Mercury Prize nominees Oxford band, Foals will, no doubt live up their NME and Q Best Live Act award when they play their set.
