A host of home-grown Norfolk talent will be taking to the stage at Radio 1's Big Weekend next month, joining an all-star line-up.

Franko Fraize, Harry Edwards and Context are among the local acts who will be performing at Europe's biggest free festival in Norwich on May 23 and 24.

They are among the fresh new artists who will perform on the BBC Introducing stage at Earlham Park.

Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, who announced the line-up on his show, said: 'Radio 1's Big Weekend is going to be amazing – not only will Taylor Swift and Foo Fighters be playing, but we'll also have a group of amazing up-and-coming acts from across the UK on the BBC Introducing stage.

'I'm delighted to see so many home-grown Norfolk acts on the bill and I look forward to seeing who'll become the next BBC Introducing success story.'

Other artists performing on the stage are Amber-Simone, Best Friends, Cash+David, Claws, Fickle Friends, Formation, Get Inuit, HONNE, Hot Cops, HUNTAR, Kill It Kid, KLOË, Laurel, Star.One, Ted Zed, The Hearts, Will Robert and Youth Club.
