Thirty Seconds To Mars said in a statement: “We are very excited to join the madness once again with our old friends at Big Weekend. It’s always a magical event, and we’re very much looking forward to sharing the stage with so many talented artists. Big thanks to our friends at Radio 1 for having us again, we can’t wait to be back. And we may even have a few.”

Jonas Brothers added: “We can’t wait to perform in Scotland for Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2023! We’re excited to play your favourite songs as well as some new music. There are going to be some great artists there. It’s going to be epic!”

Earlier this year The 1975, Lewis Capaldi and Arlo Parks were some of the first names announced for the festival.

BBC Radio One’s Big Weekend was intended to take place in the Scottish city in 2020 but was cancelled due to the COVID pandemic. In 2022, Coventry hosted the festival with Ed Sheeran, Lorde, Calvin Harris, and Sam Fender among those on the line-up.
