HAPPY SUNDAYS!

The UK station plans another bunch of 'One Big Sunday' specials...

OUTKAST, MANIC STREET PREACHERS and SHAGGY are just some of the acts confirmed for RADIO 1’s ONE BIG SUNDAY events in the summer of 2001.

The events, which last year attracted over 500,000 people around the UK, have also confirmed appearances by JJ72, S Club 7, Westlife, Architechs and Spooks.

Although individual line-ups have yet to be confirmed, the dates for One Big Sunday are as follows:

Manchester Heaton Park (June 24)

Irvine Beach Park (July 15)

Plymouth The Hoe (July 29)

Carlisle Bitts Park (August 5)

Middlesborough Stewart Park (August 19)

The station also confirmed they would once again be hosting a weekend each in Ayia Napa (June 29-July 1) and Ibiza (August 4-6), and that October’s ‘One Live’ week of events will be taking place this year in Birmingham.

Radio 1’s live events in 2001 kick off with ‘One Live In London’ over the Easter Weekend (April 11-16). The series of events will feature guest DJs such as Josh Wink, Dave Clarke and Fergie, as well as live performances from the likes of King Adora, Steven Malkmus and Papa Roach.
