How to watch BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend: stream the festival from anywhere

Social distancing won’t put a stop to BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2020. Though the event was originally planned as an in-person music festival for the end of May, BBC is taking the event virtual and letting everyone watch the show.

With live (at home) performances from artists like HAIM, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, and the Jonas Brothers, as well as replays of past performances from musicians like Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, and Calvin Harris, the festival is certain to include something for everyone.

BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend festival will have several ‘stages’ showing performances, including the Radio 1 Stage where live at home performances will be aired and the Headliner stage which features past performances from top artists from around the world. Meanwhile, BBC Music Introducing Stage offers up 40 acts you probably haven’t heard of before. Radio 1 Dance and 1Xtra stages feature their own performances as well.
