5 Seconds of Summer, Charli XCX, Fall Out Boy + More Rock Out at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2015
One of the major festivals opening up the summer fest season in the UK, the two-day event was packed with high energy live sets from seasoned veterans and up-and-coming stars that are sure to be headliners real soon. While 5 Seconds of Summer brought the their punk vibe to the stage with their cover of "What I Like About You," Fall Out Boy lit up the stage with "My Songs Know What Did in the Dark." The ladies ruled the stage with Charli XCX's performance of "Famous" and Florence and the Machine's "Ship to Wreck."
Other performers included Rita Ora, Olly Murs, Snoop Dogg, Hozier and Imagine Dragons. While David Guetta put on a great club set, Nicki Minaj did not make a cameo when he played "Hey Mama." Also due to Sam Smith still recovering from vocal chord surgery, he had to cancel his appearance on the main stage, which mean that upcoming and coming English indie rock band, Catfish and the Bottlemen, were upgraded to the main stage to perform their live set.
George Ezra, who opened for Sam last year, had some kind words for him, during his set. "I'd like to say from everyone here that I hope Sam makes a speedy recovery and comes back to us soon," the UK singer-songwriter said to the crowd.
Still set to perform today (May 24) is Taylor Swift and the Foo Fighters, who are set to hit the stage later this afternoon or -- depending on which time zone you're in. You can head over the BCC to listen to the festival stream live or watch it on the BBC website.
