Live music action on NME.COM this weekend

We'll be at the Great Escape and Radio 1's Big Weekend

It’s going to be a hectic weekend (May 19 and 20) of live action in the UK – and NME.COM will bring you all the news from the Great Escape Festival in Brighton and Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Preston.

The Great Escape kicked off in Brighton last night (May 17) – check out our first night report. The action continues tonight and Saturday – and we’ll be bringing you up-to-the minute reports and a regular blog where you can check out all the action and get all the gossip.

Among the highlights of the weekend will be our own Club NME events at the Komedia, featuring the likes of Annuals and Bondo De Role.

We’ll also be at Moor Park in Preston soaking up all the action at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, where the likes of Scissor Sisters, Razorlight, CSS, Bloc Party and Klaxons will be among the bands performing.

We’ll also have regular reports and a blog coming from there, so stay tuned.
