What were you doing a year ago today? You might have been in Earlham Park for Radio 1's Big Weekend, which brought acts like Taylor Swift, Snoop Dogg and the Foo Fighters to Norwich.


In January 2015, Greg James announced Norwich had been chosen to host Radio 1's annual festival, the Big Weekend, with pop princess Taylor Swift confirmed as the first headliner.

Tickets for the event were released online in March and sold out within just 40 minutes of becoming available.

Flash-forward to May and the musical extravaganza became a reality with three stages set up in Earlham Park, ready for the likes of Rita Ora, David Guetta, James Bay and Muse to perform their hit songs.


Roughly 50,000 people flooded into the park over the weekend to watch as Snoop Dogg danced around in a Norwich City football shirt, Florence Welch overcame a broken foot and Fall Out Boy made everyone feel like it was 2005.

The event was so popular, that several desperate music fans even tried to dig their way into the festival.

This year's Big Weekend will be taking place at Powderham Castle in Exeter on the 28 and 29 May, where headliners include Coldplay, Ellie Goulding and Bring Me The Horizon.
