Fantastic news – and yet another affirmation of their rapidly burgeoning reputation – as BBC Radio 1 have announced that they’ve picked MDNGHT to perform at one of the most sought-after events in the UK, Radio 1’s Big Weekend on Sunday 25th May.
It means they will be sharing the bill with huge stars like Katy Perry, Kasabian and Rita Ora amongst many others.
The band are part of a select few artists identified by the key tastemakers in the BBC Introducing team, marking them as one of the UK’s hottest prospects.
MDNGHT will be playing the BBC Introducing Stage alongside other highly-sought-after new acts, including Catfish and the Bottlemen, Royal Blood and XO.
There’s full information on the Big Weekend here – which takes place from the 23rd to the 25th May.

In 2010, East London’s Bibelots won an opening slot at the prestigious Snow bombing festival in Austria, and were quickly spotted by John McClure of Reverend and the Makers. By the summer of that year the lads had started their own club night at Buffalo Bar, Islington and were starting to really make a name for themselves, along with support slots for such heavyweights as Detroit Social Club, Chapman Family, The Rifles, Starsailor , Dinosaur Pileup and Ocean Colour Scene, Miles Kane and Kasabian.
Already crowned HMV Next Big Thing for 2012, ‘The Revolution Will Be Digitised’ is receiving support from Geoff Lloyd at Absolute Radio, Amazing Radio & BBC Introducing and the band recently performed the track live on ESPN’s Talk of the Terrace.
