Dundee’s Camperdown Park is set to be named as the host for Radio 1’s Big Weekend this May.
The Courier reports that the music festival is on the verge of a return to the City of Discovery, fourteen years after it last took place on Tayside.
Tens of thousands of music fans will be expected to descend on Dundee for the three-day event, which sees some of the biggest names in music take to the stage.
Snow Patrol, Muse, Keane, Pink, Sugababes, Editors, Razorlight and more performed at the 2006 edition.
The 2019 festival, which took place in Middlesbrough, saw the likes of Miley Cyrus, The 1975 and Billie Eilish taking to the stage.
The BBC has refused to confirm the location but The Courier reports that discussions about bringing the festival back to Dundee are at an advanced stage.
Councillors on Dundee City Council’s Policy and Resources Committee held a meeting in private on Monday night, where they agreed to support the event, which will run on May 22, 23 and 24.
A Radio 1 spokesperson said: “We know our listeners love to guess the location of Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and wherever we will be, we’ll be sure to bring the biggest UK and international artists with us.”
