Coldplay have revealed that they will headline this year's Big Weekend for BBC Radio 1. The band confirmed the news today when they dropped into Fearne Cotton's show for two special Live Lounge performances.

The booking means that Coldplay will top the bill when Radio 1 hosts a weekend of live music in Glasgow from May 24 to May 25. They join the likes of Rita Ora, The 1975, Paolo Nutini and Pharrell Williams on the bill with a host of other bands yet to be revealed.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have been asked to play Radio 1's Big Weekend in Glasgow this year," Will Champion told the station.

"Playing in Glasgow is always so much fun and Radio 1 have always been wonderful to us so it couldn't really be any better!"
