This year, the festival will return to the field for the first time in two years and will be part of the BBC’s Centenary celebrations. 

It will also kick off the UK’s festival season and take artists to the cities that may not otherwise host a large scale event like Big Weekend, shining a light on the host city and providing a major boost to the local economy. 

The BBC is working closely with Coventry City Council to put on Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2022 during Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture.
