[Watch] Arctic Monkeys - Surprise Set at Radio One's Big Weekend
This weekend, 40000 competition winners hot footed it to Carlisle for Radio One's Big Weekend. With performances from some of the biggest names in music, including Lady Gaga, Foo Fighters, My Chemical Romance and The Strokes just to name a few. Today we'll be doing our best to bring you as much footage as possible from the fun filled weekend in the rainy UK countryside.
To kick the weekend off the DJ's over at Radio One had managed to keep one hell of a big secret, as opening the Main Stage on Saturday was Sheffield's finest, Arctic Monkeys! They appeared on stage to the shock of fans expecting Jessie J to be first on. Performing a mix of their greatest hits including, "Brianstorm" and "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" the band also threw in some new ones to boot including, "The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala" and "Don't Sit Down 'Cos I've Moved Your Chair". The set was finished of by fan favourite, "When The Sun Goes Down". A great opening to the weekend of free music and festival fun. Check out the performance here. Part one is at the top with the rest of the broadcast set after the jump. Happy Monday!
