Exclusive Kasabian Live Lounge session planned for Big Weekend

BBC Radio 1 has announced that Lily Allen, Kasabian, Kelly Rowland, Paolo Nutini and JLS will perform exclusive backstage Live Lounge sessions at the Big Weekend.

It is the first time that BBC Radio 1 has taken the Live Lounge backstage at its annual flagship event which takes place in Lydiard Park on Saturday and Sunday.

Highlights from the special Live Lounge sessions will go out on Radio 1, between 1pm and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Listeners will be able to see what’s going on in the Live Lounge via the backstage webcam at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1.

Jo Whiley, whose weekday show is home to the Live Lounge, announced the news on Radio 1 yesterday morning.

She said: “I’m so thrilled we’re taking the Live Lounge to Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Swindon – it means we can offer listeners something that even the crowd in Swindon won’t get to see. I’m especially excited about Jack Penate and also Paolo Nutini who is tipping up especially to play the all new portable Live Lounge on wheels! It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
