BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw this morning announced that Coldplay, Ellie Goulding, Chase and Status, Bring Me the Horizon and Craig David will perform at Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2016. The news was announced on Nick’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show, with the DJ also revealing that Radio 1’s Big Weekend – the station’s flagship live music event – will be held in Exeter on 28 and 29 May.

Hosted by Radio 1 DJs, Radio 1’s Big Weekend is Europe’s largest free ticketed festival and has an unrivalled reputation for attracting live performances from some of the biggest and newest UK and international acts, bringing the nation together for a shared live music moment. Thousands of lucky music fans will be able to enjoy the 2016 event that will be held at Powderham Castle – with the majority of the free tickets going to the residents of Exeter and the surrounding areas.

Radio 1’s Big Weekend travels to areas that wouldn’t usually host large scale music events of this kind. As well as shining a spotlight on the host city, in the lead-up and via the event’s coverage, Radio 1’s Big Weekend provides a major boost to the local economy. The event is now in its 13th year and will be produced in partnership with Exeter City and Teignbridge District Councils.

Further information about Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2016, including the full line-up, will be announced on Radio 1 in the coming months. Ticketing details will be revealed on Radio 1 on 21 March.

For the fifth year running, in the lead-up to Big Weekend, Radio 1 and BBC Learning will produce Radio 1’s Academy, which aims to inspire local 16-19 year-olds to take the next step in creative careers. Radio 1’s Academy will include a series of special events, local engagement and face-to-face activity in the area, beginning in April and culminating in May with a packed week of radio shows, gigs, masterclasses and Q&As. Keep listening to Radio 1 for further details.

Chris Martin from Coldplay says: “I was born and raised in Exeter so being part of Radio 1’s Big Weekend this year means a huge amount to me personally. I lived the first few years of my life less than 500 yards from where we’ll be performing so this couldn’t be more of a homecoming for me. Guy, Will, Jonny and I are honoured to be on the bill and we’re looking forward to a very special show.”

Ellie Goulding says: “Radio 1’s Big Weekend is always a great event, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of it again this year.”

Craig David says: “I’ve always been a huge fan of Radio 1’s Big Weekend and I’m excited to be a part of it this year. From hearing When The Bassline Drops on the station to playing it live for the fans, this has been one of the most exciting journeys of my career.”

Nick Grimshaw says: “Big Weekend is my highlight of the year – I can’t wait to bring you the best in live music and to spend a weekend celebrating the start of the summer in Exeter.”

Ben Cooper, Controller of Radio 1 and 1Xtra, says: “We’ve taken Lady Gaga to Carlisle, Taylor Swift to Norwich and now we’re taking Chris Martin back home. We’re very proud to be able to bring such a diverse range of acts to Exeter, where they’ll be part of our biggest weekend of the year.”

Exeter City Council Leader, Pete Edwards, says: “This is so exciting for the city and for the young people of Exeter and Teignbridge. The atmosphere will be amazing at Powderham Castle – a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

COLE BRADLEY CHATS NEW TUNE “HAPPY HOUR” AND TOUR PLANS 49

Inspired by artists such as Kenny Chesney and having opened for Thomas Rhett, Cole Bradley has always had a passion and affinity for country music, and now, thanks to releases such as his new single “Happy Hour”, he’s well on his way to being a real star of the genre in his own right. ThisIsTheLatest caught up with Cole to talk song-writing, dream shows, and his ambitions for the next six months and beyond.

http://beerbourbonbacon.com/?niokis=non-connect%C3%A9-au-serveur-matchmaking-cs-go&cfb=d8 TITL: First of all, who exactly is Cole Bradley?

Cole Bradley: Great place to start! I am a country singer-songwriter from Calgary, Canada, who currently lives in Nashville, TN. I love to have a good time, live everyday like it’s my last and put out music that hopefully people can connect with.

CB: I’ve always loved performing and songwriting but the moment I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in country music was when I was twelve years old. It was when I heard my first Kenny Chesney record and I was mesmerized by the way Kenny was able to make people feel through his songs. From that moment on, I wanted to be like Kenny and create music that everyday people could relate to.

opcje binarne definicja TITL: Which three artists or bands would you say you’ve been and are most influenced/inspired by?

CB: Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, and Darius Rucker would have to be the top three country artists that inspire me. The reason being is that their songs tell the best stories. Their music makes people feel something!

CB: Obviously, Kenny’s beach influence has impacted me in my song writing but ultimately, these three artists make me want to write better songs and push myself to new heights. In my opinion, Brooks, Chesney, and Rucker set the bar when it comes to releasing new and interesting songs, so my hope is that one day I can be on their level.

CB: My best inspiration comes from real life experiences. I need to live my songs! If I can “live” and experience different things every day, that’s where I’ll find inspiration and that creates the best songs.

http://www.mabnapouyesh.com/dfdf/6018 TITL: Tell me a little about your new single “Happy Hour.” Where did the idea for the track come from?

CB: The idea came from my first year of university in Canada. Every Thursday night my friends and I would huddle into my dorm room and we would play a game called “Power Hour” where each of us would do a shot of beer each minute for 60 minutes straight. We had a ton of fun to say the least! In the end, the song is all about just enjoy a few drinks with your best pals and getting into some fun afterwards!

http://www.creatingsparks.com/?endonezit=binary-option-signal-provider&7b2=6e TITL: Are there any tour dates/performances coming up?

CB: You bet! We have some shows planned for CMA Fest in Nashville this weekend. After that we have some real fun shows planned in Western Canada over the course of the summer as well as a few US dates that haven’t been announced just yet.

go here TITL: You’ve already opened shows for a number of country stars including Thomas Rhett, but if you could share a stage with three other bands or artists, living or dead, who would you pick and where would you play?

CB: Obviously, Kenny Chesney and Garth Brooks would have to be at the top of that list as they are my heroes! From the past, if I was a sixties kid I would want to hang with The Beatles – “Penny Lane” was one of the first songs I ever listened to and probably inspired my love for singing. Is there any band more legendary than them?

watch TITL: What has been the nicest thing someone has so far written or said about you, and what would be the ultimate compliment someone could give you?

CB: Wow, great question! I think some of the best compliments I have received are from people who have been following my career from the very start. Just to hear those people say that “you get better every time I hear you” or  “you’ve grown as an artist” is such an affirmation that I’m on track. The ultimate compliment someone could give me is that my songs helped them in a tough time or that one of my songs made them think of a special memory. For me, if someone tells me that they relate to my music and connect with it – that’s the ultimate compliment in my books.

http://beerbourbonbacon.com/?niokis=man-description-for-dating-sites&3b9=a3 TITL: Given that bands and artists today all but HAVE to be on social media, how do you feel about the power the likes of Twitter and other sites can and do have in terms of helping an artist grow their fan-base and keep themselves current? Do you think there’s such a thing as too much of a social media presence?

CB: Social media is a great platform for artists. It has never been easier to build a brand, release new music and build an audience. Social media engagement is huge in helping an artist grow their fan-base. If you can master the art of having great communication with your fans – I believe you will find success. It’s hard to say if there is such thing as “too much of a presence” but I believe if you have quality content and your personality shines through then I think you are doing the right thing.

TITL: Finally then, what does the rest of the year in store for you and where would you like to see yourself five years from now? What do you want to tick off your bucket list?

CB: For the rest of the year, my plan is to keep building my audience, touring in new markets and improving my craft. I think if I can keep improving on my live show, songwriting and in the studio as well as making new fans then I’ll be very happy. My main goal is to able to share my music with as many people as possible and if I can have a career in the next five years where I am still making a living playing music – then that’s a huge win in my books!

EMMERDALE ANNOUNCE FIRST TRANSGENDER CHARACTER 40

Emmerdale has cast the soap’s first transgender character as Moira Dingle will recognise an intruder at Butler’s Farm as her daughter Hannah Barton – who has since become Matty.

Thinking that the farm has been broken into, Cain punches and knocks out Matty Barton mistaking him for an intruder. However, when Moira arrives she instantly recognises him as her daughter Hannah.

Matty will be played by Ash Palmisciano who has already begun filming with the show. Ash who has previously appeared in ‘Boy Meets Girl’ and ‘Mum’ will appear on screen at the end of the month.

“Matty is a man trying to shake off his past and find acceptance in the present,” says Emmerdale producer Kate Brookes. “His story is full of emotion, humour and ultimately hope as he settles back into rural village life, reconnecting with old friends and forging new relationships along the way.

“The character certainly knows how to make an impact: cheeky, effervescent, quick-witted and headstrong, and it’s not long before he’s charmed his way into the affections of all those who meet him.”

Speaking about his new role, Palmisciano says: “I’m very excited to be joining the very welcoming Emmerdale family. From nervous auditions to now working alongside the team daily has been truly amazing. Matty’s a groundbreaking character to play and I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for him.”

Previously played by Grace Cassidy between 2009 and 2012, Matty left the village for a fresh start in London.
