Radio1 Big Weekend Highlights

Happy hump day! I hope you're all having a fantastic week so far? edging closer to the weekend, once again! Although, I'm still slightly recovering from last weekend and sneaking in naps when I can - I swear my body feels like it's 90 - but I thought I'd share just exactly what I got up to whilst at the Radio 1 Big Weekend and my highlights from the line up! Which, I might add, was all caught on my iphone in between dancing sessions, so apologies for the lesser quality...

The weekend kicked off for Adam and I in the BBC Introducing tent with a set from Kill It Kid - Think classic rock infused with a heady case of the blues. The band are actually local to Norwich but spend a lot of time touring Europe, so to see them on home turf was a treat. Even though I've had the pleasure of meeting them a few times, this was my first time seeing them play, and they didn't disappoint! Awesome! A set from Kill It Kid was the best way to jump start my weekend! 'I'll be the first' is a song you can't help but move to. 

There was time to squeeze in a quick Bullitt burger (there is always time) and we were off to watch Mallory Knox at the In New Music We Trust tent. They are a 5 piece alternative rock band and are actually another local group from just down the road in Cambridge. It was Adam that really wanted to make this set, but I think I got into it more than him! I recognised a couple of their songs once they started playing ('Shout AtThe Moon' & 'Getaway'and it was one of my favourite sets of the weekend. I'm actually listening to them whilst I type this post.

Over the 2 days we also caught Snoop Dogg (I wasn't actually in the tent, but I could see him so that counts, right?), Florence and the Machine, Fall Out Boy (Adam was in his element reliving his teenage years), and a great set from man-of-the-moment James Bay - but it was all about the babe that is Taylor Swift. Oh Yes. It felt as though the whole weekend had built up to her - forgive me, Foo Fighters - and the main stage was packedOf course, I used this opportunity to sing to my hearts content, my deafening notes thankfully muffled by crowd noise, and really not caring about the 25,000 people surrounding me, I pulled some shapes!

I have to say how amazing it was that Norwich got to host such a huge event like The Big Weekend, but most importantly I think my city done R1 proud.

Did you get tickets for Radio 1's Big Weekend? I hope you had an awesome time!
