The 1975 will give the songs from their forthcoming album 'Music For Cars' their live debut during their set.
They said: "We're delighted to come to the North East for the first UK show of Music For Cars. Radio 1 has been a massive part of our story over the years and this will be our fourth time playing Big Weekend. It's great to be coming back, this time as headliners."
