Whilst we’ve been bathing in the glorious sunshine this bank holiday weekend, the magic of live music has returned in some realm of sorts with BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Set across three days from the 28th to the 31st, some of the biggest music artists right now headed to some glorious landscapes in the UK countryside and delved us in some fantastic live music.
Coldplay at Whitby Abbey, Ed Sheeran in the countryside, Jorja Smith at Alexandra Palace, AJ Tracey at a basketball court and Royal Blood at their local Brighton pier – the plethora up for grabs was quite favourable to any fanatic fans of music.
Whilst it’s easy on eyes with fantastic backdrops to the emphatics of music, it’s another horrid reminder of the effects live music has without its audience. Entirely reliable upon one another, BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend is another implore for COVID to dismiss from our shores and for us to get back to live-audience shows, gigs and festivals.
