BBC Radio 2 in the Park 2024 heads to Preston


BBC Radio 2 in the Park 2024 heads to Preston

Radio 2’s annual live music event, ‘In the Park’, will take place this year in Moor Park in Preston…

The Beeb station will head to Lancashire on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September. Radio 2 will be decamping to the city for two days, along with many of its presenters.

Helen Thomas, Head of Radio 2:

“I’m delighted that this year’s Radio 2 in the Park will take place in Preston. 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! “

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 a 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.

Adrian Phillips, Chief Executive at Preston City Council:

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome the BBC to Preston with Radio 2’s flagship live music event, Radio 2 In the Park. As this year’s host city, 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 is a brilliant coup for Preston and 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!”
