Katy Perry is set to headline Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull. The two day event takes place on May 27 and 28 in the UK’s City of Culture 2017. Perry confirmed the news on the Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.

“Grimmy has told me all about Hull and we’ve already set up a date to the Yorkshire pudding factory,” she said. “Radio 1’s Big Weekend is always a blast and I’m so happy to be able to make it to Hull alongside the incredible line-up.”
