Radio 1 DJ Matt Edmondson said planning was the best way to get the most out of the Big Weekend, and would ensure no favourite bands were missed.

The presenter, who hosts a radio show on Saturdays and Sundays at 10am, said: 'You don't want to find yourself trapped in one stage and have missed a band you wanted to see.

'It is good to be a bit of a geek about it.

'I have become unstuck about it before, so do some planning.'

He added Muse, 5 Seconds of Summer, Snoop Dogg and Years and Years were on his must-see list, along with DJ and producer David Guetta.

Matt can be heard live from Earlham Park both days at 10am, where he and Greg James will sneak on site to get the gossip before the day begins.

'This is the best one we have ever had,' he said. 'There are so many people I am keen to go and see.
