MDNGHT performed to an enthusiastic crowd at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Glasgow – and got them to their feet and dancing to their summery tunes immediately!
Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens was won over by their performance, and recognised MDNGHT’s dancefloor potential: “This’ll get the whole place bouncing… sounding wonderful!”
Huw’s colleague, influential DJ Ally McCrae, thought so too: “MDNGHT were great… I loved their set!”
After wowing the crowd, and the DJs, the boys headed backstage and hung out with Rita Ora, Nick Grimshaw, Fearne Cotton, Paulo Nutini, Jameela Jamil and a whole host of stars, capping off a hugely successful day!
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.
