On Tuesday morning BBC Music announced the broadcasting plans for its Biggest Weekend, which takes place at the Perthshire estate from Friday, May 25 until Saturday, May 26.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will take to the stage at the event along with Simple Minds, Emile Sande, Julie Fowlis, Nigel Kennedy, Jamie Cullum, The Shires, Amy Macdonald, The Beat starring Dave Wakeling and the Scottish Jazz Orchestra.

The BBC has announced that the set by Gallagher on Saturday will be broadcast on BBC Two, while Simple Minds are due to appear on a highlights show on BBC Four.

Performances will be available to watch “both live and on demand” on BBC iPlayer.

Perth’s TV presenting team for the weekend will be Edith Bowman and Claudia Winkleman.

BBC Radio Three will cover the Scone Palace event on Friday and Radio Two will take over on Saturday.

Presenters Ken Bruce and Sara Cox will join Winkleman live backstage at Scone Palace from 3pm-10pm on the Saturday and, alongside interviews and live coverage, will discuss the “incredible history” of the estate.

Across the weekend, performances will be broadcast on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four, Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, 6 Music and made available on BBC iPlayer. The Biggest Weekend includes three other events in Belfast, Coventry and Swansea.

Bob Shennan, director BBC Radio and Music, said: “No one does music like the BBC – across TV, radio and online we’re bringing the UK nations together to enjoy a musical celebration unprecedented in its scope, scale and range of artists.”

Ken Bruce said: “I’m delighted to be in beautiful Perthshire for this fabulous weekend of brilliant music. It promises to be the event of the year.”

Claudia Winkleman added: “I’m so excited to be part of the Biggest Weekend. I’m going to be in Perth chatting to the people who have come to watch the brilliant bands. If you’re there, come find me. I’ll have snacks.”
