BBC Radio 2 in the Park 2024 to land in Preston

Radio 2’s flagship annual live music event, Radio 2 in the Park, will take place in Moor Park in Preston.

The news was announced by Gaby Roslin on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show today.

The station will be decamping to the city on Saturday 7 and Sunday, September 8, along with many of its presenters.

A full artist line-up will be revealed in early June, and tickets will go on sale shortly after. Details will be available here – bbc.co.uk/radio2inthepark.

Helen Thomas, head of Radio 2 said: “Following last year’s epic extravaganza in Leicester, we can’t wait to head north with our fantastic family of Radio 2 presenters, as well as some of the most loved music artists on the planet, to party with the good people of Lancashire!”

Adrian Phillips, chief executive at Preston City Council said he was delighted to welcome the event, “We’re really excited to be staging two jam-packed days, full of incredible live performances from some of the music world’s biggest stars. This will be a huge boost for the city. We can’t wait to hear who the line-up is for this year and to welcome thousands of Radio 2 listeners to proud Preston!”

Preston hosted BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2007, and last year Radio 2 in the Park was held in Victoria Park in Leicester featuring headliners Tears for Fears and Kylie Minogue, who performed her world exclusive full concert performance for the first time in four years.

Earlier this year, Radio 2’s Piano Room Month featured an incredible range of artists including Anastacia, Johnny Marr, Gabrielle, Pet Shop Boys, and Bruce Hornsby.  Jo Whiley’s Sofa Sessions have included Maggie Rogers, Cast, English Teacher, Corinne Bailey Rae and The Vaccines.
