The 16th annual music event is scheduled to take place over two days at Stewart Park in North Yorkshire, North East England, between May 25 and 26.

Cyrus said: “I’ll be playing Big Weekend in Middlesbrough this year! Hope you’re ready to party cause I’m bringing my fans their favourite songs and possibly some new ones! See ya in the summer!”

The 1975 will give the songs from their forthcoming album 'Music For Cars' their live debut during their set.
They said: "We’re delighted to come to the North East for the first UK show of Music For Cars. Radio 1 has been a massive part of our story over the years and this will be our fourth time playing Big Weekend. It’s great to be coming back, this time as headliners.”
