GLASGOW is to host Radio 1 Big Weekend this May with Paolo Nutini topping the line-up.

The event will be held at the city’s Glasgow Green between 24 and 25 May.

The news was announced by Nick Grimshaw as he broadcast his Radio 1 Breakfast Show live from BBC Scotland, based at Pacific Quay in Glasgow.

Headline artists and the full line-up for the event will be announced on Radio 1 over the coming months.

Last year’s event in Londonderry was headlined by Calvin Harris, Biffy Clyro and Bruno Mars.

More than 60,000 tickets will be available across the two events and around 50,000 music fans will be at the performances on 24 and 25 May.
