Radio 1’s Big Weekend: RAYE (BBC One, 25 May 2024)


Radio 1’s Big Weekend returns to BBC One this Saturday, 25 May 2024, with a performance by the incredible RAYE. The South London singer-songwriter takes the headline slot on the Main Stage, following an incredible year that saw her release her debut album, “My 21st Century Blues,” and win a record-breaking six Brit Awards.

RAYE has been on a remarkable trajectory since releasing her album in 2023, with sold-out tours and a critically acclaimed show at the Royal Albert Hall. Her appearance at last year’s Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee on the New Music Stage left a lasting impression, and now she’s back to grace the main stage.
