The first names were announced today for this year's Radio 1 Big Weekend, which is being held on 28-29 May at Powderham Castle in Exeter. Drum & bass crossover superstars Chase & Status will headline the festival, alongside dad rockers Coldplay and US rock band Bring Me The Horizon.

Chase & Status appeared on Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 breakfast show this morning to announce the news. Craig David and Ellie Goulding will also be appearing at the Big Weekend, with the full line-up details expected to be announced soon.

The Big Weekend, which is held in a different location each year, is Europe's largest free ticketed festival. Chase & Status have appeared there several times before, headlining the In New Music We Trust stage in 2012, and playing on the main stage in 2011 and 2013.

Details of how to apply for tickets will be announced on 21 March.
