Radio 1 axe Big Weekend over virus fears
The latest musical casualty of the Coronavirus is Radio 1’s Big Weekend, which has been cancelled today. The event was due to take place in Dundee from Friday 22nd of May to Sunday 24th, but will now nit happen.
The Radio 1 Twitter explained “After careful consideration we have come to the decision that Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2020 in Dundee will not go ahead… This decision has been made in conjunction with the advice from the Scottish government, and while we know fans looking forward to purchasing tickets will be disappointed, it is important that we prioritise the health and safety of all those involved.”
It’ll be interesting to see if 2021’s goes back to Dundee.
