The line up for BBC Radio 1's One Big Weekend celebration is going from strength to strength with the announcement of another top band and solo artist to the A-list line up. Joining the bill for the event in Exeter this summer will be The 1975 and Jake Bugg

The 1975 are seasoned veterans of the One Big Weekend circuit, having played for the BBC's premier music station at their previous Londonderry and Glasgow shows, and are currently riding the success of the release of their second album. Jake Bugg, meanwhile, has been building his craft for a number of years and is a welcome addition to a line up that continues to grow and diversify.

The 'Lightning Bolt' singer, is sure to have the festival crowd dancing the afternoon away and is likely to showcase songs from his upcoming album, due out in June.

These announcements add to a line up that is sure to appeal to the Devon crowd.

The 1975 join a host of stars that have already been announced, including headliners Coldplay, Ellie Goulding, festival favourites Chase & Status, the return of Craig David and Bring Me The Horizon, who are sure to be the highlight for many of the region's teenagers. This eclectic range of musical acts will take to the stage at Powderham Castle on the outskirts of the city on the 28th and 29th of May. This is the first time that the event will be in the Southwest – many years after the One Big Sunday events that graced Plymouth Hoe – and has been greatly anticipated by the area.

Coldplay are sure to be the main attraction at this event – not only are they one of the headliners for Glastonbury this year, the Exeter event is something of a homecoming for the band, with Chris Martin hailing from the area. This is doubly important for this event as the ticketing system is designed to ensure that only locals that queue for the free tickets are able to attend. The event is set to be a great celebration of #Music for Devon and with more acts and ticketing details to be announced on March 21st, it can only get bigger. #Celebrities #Festivities
