Radio 1s Big Weekend

The Big Weekend is now an annual fixture in the EnTEE calendar, having been involved at Hackney in 2012, Derry in 2013, Glasgow in 2014, Norwich in 2015 and Exeter in 2016.  Work is currently underway for the yet to be announced location in 2017.

Initially, EnTEEtainment Ltd worked on behalf Festival Republic to oversee production and artiste technical liaison for all 6 stages at the BBC Radio One Hackney Weekend. Attended by over 100,000 lucky ticket holders over 2 days on the Hackney Marshes site adjacent to the Olympic Park – this unique show was packed full of ‘headliner acts’ including Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kasabian, Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran,, Calvin Harris, Tinie Tempah, Jessie J, David Guetta, Chase & Status and Emeli Sande – just to mention a few! As part of the London 2012 celebrations, Hackney Weekend was the biggest free ticketed event staged the UK.

Whilst Festival Republic are no longer involved with the event, the BBC retained the production services of EnTEEtainment Ltd which has seen them working with the likes of the Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, One Direction and Coldplay, co-ordinating both the band’s needs and those associated with a live radio and television broadcast.
