Acts have been sharing their delight at playing BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee later this year.
Earlier this month The Courier revealed that the popular event would be returning to Camperdown Park in 2020.
The list includes Biffy Clyro, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, Calvin Harris, Camila Cabello and AJ Tracey.
And the musicians have been having their say on the return of the Big Weekend to Dundee after a gap of 14 years.
Harry Styles said he is “absolutely thrilled” to be playing in the City of Discovery.
He added: “Yes Radio 1! Absolutely thrilled to be back at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, it’s the start of the summer and the crowds in Scotland are always insane. See you soon Dundee!”
Scot Calvin Harris said: “I can’t wait to see you back at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee in May. See you there.”
Simon Neil from Scots rock band Biffy Clyro added: “We are going to be playing BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee. We can’t wait. Bring on May. We can’t wait. See you there. We better see you there.”
Camila Cabello said: “I can’t wait to be performing at the Big Weekend this year. I can’t wait to see you all in Dundee in May. It’s going to be a good old time.
“Radio 1 has been a huge part of my journey over the last few years so I am beyond excited to be coming back to Big Weekend! It’s going to super fun to perform for you guys in Scotland.”
Dua Lipa said she was “so excited” to be playing Camperdown Park.
