The event takes place on the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend from Thursday 2 to Saturday 4 June 2022 and will see one of the biggest line ups ever assembled descend on to Plymouth Hoe for three jam packed days! 

Thursday 2 June 

The perfect start to the Bank Holiday weekend and is one for the dance music lovers, featuring a full live 30-piece orchestra and a soundtrack that will transport listeners through three decades of iconic White Isle classics. 

The orchestra night will feature special guests Basement Jaxx, and joined by many support acts, including MTV and Plymouth favourite DJ R3WIRE.  

Friday 3 June

The ‘1 Big Summer’ day festival and main event follows with one of the biggest events ever held on the Hoe. The Friday will feature one of the biggest artists in the world right now: Years & Years.

Years & Years will be joined by an array of UK chart topping acts and entertainment throughout the day, including L Devine and Beka. 

This day was previously sold out but due to a small number of refunds, there is now limited availability - but this will be on a first come first served basis.

Saturday 4 June 

Saturday will see two of the biggest bands - The Libertines and Supergrass - come together for ultimate finale of the 1 Big Summer weekend! .
