Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend 2012
Held in Leona’s hometown, Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend will take place on Hackney Marshes on 23-24 June 2012, as part of the London 2012 Festival.
Joining Leona on the bill is fellow Hackney artist Plan B along with 80 international and UK artists, bands and DJs including 1Xtra’s Trevor Nelson.
The massive event will replace Radio 1’s annual Big Weekend festival in 2012 and, as with the Big Weekend, the majority of tickets will go to people living in Hackney and the surrounding boroughs.
The event will be broadcast on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra, BBC Three, and there will be full coverage right here on bbc.co.uk/radio1
Two days, 100,000 people, six stages - don’t miss it!
