Swansea Biggest Weekend

Swansea Biggest Weekend 2018 Line Up

What is Radio 1's Biggest Weekend?

This year Swansea hosted Radio 1's The Biggest Weekend and The Fringe.

From the 18th to the 28th May there were Radio 1 events happening all over the City. The weekend of 26th and 27th May saw acts such as Sam Smith, Florence and the Machine, George Ezra and Jess Glynne descend on Swansea for one of the Biggest festivals we have seen.

Thanks to Swansea City Council, the Welsh Government and the BBC working behind the scenes, Swansea secured the Welsh Leg of the Home Counties event.

Why Swansea?

Swansea University's social life is often voted one of the best in the UK and it's no surprise with events happening throughout the year!

With Varsity, Summer Ball - a mini festival itself, Freshers' week and many more events every week, Biggest Weekend was a welcome addition to all of these.
