After a UK wide city and venue search, 1 Big Summer will bring three days of entertainment to Plymouth Hoe. Each day has been curated to appeal to a plethora of musical tastes, genres and audiences, ensuring there really is something for everyone.
Friday 27th August will see Ibiza Classics 2021, featuring a full live 26-piece orchestra and a soundtrack that will transport listeners through three decades of iconic white isle classics. The orchestra night will also feature a huge headline DJ set and several support acts direct from the shores of Ibiza, all to be announced in the coming weeks.
On Saturday 28th August, the ‘1 Big Summer’ day festival and main event follows suit with one of the biggest events ever held on the Hoe. Featuring an array of UK chart-topping acts and entertainment throughout the day, it’s ‘the party we’ve all been waiting for’.
Sunday 29th August is one for the whole family. ‘The Great British Sausage and Cider Festival’ will offer an unprecedented array of craft cider, sausage flavours, street food and entertainment, including stage games, and competitions throughout the day. Not only that, there will also be some remarkable special guests in the shape of some of the UK’s best-known arena and festival bands, alongside a fantastic line up of local talent. This is set to be the perfect bank holiday Sunday.
Councillor Pete Smith, Deputy Leader of Plymouth City Council, said: “We’re delighted that the 1 Big Summer team have chosen Plymouth Hoe as their venue for what will be an amazing three days of live music and entertainment.
“It’ll be an important part of our post-Covid bounce back, bringing great economic benefit to the city by encouraging more visitors and supporting local businesses. We all need a party after the past year, and this is just the ticket!”
With demand across all three days expected to be very high, the organisers are keen to ensure the people of Plymouth are prioritised. As such, a sign-up period which starts today will be used to prioritise Plymouth residents when tickets go on sale.
To manage demand, tickets will be limited to 4 per person.
Pre-sale tickets for those who have signed up will be available from 9am on 26th March 2021. Reminders will be sent closer to the time.
Day tickets for 1 Big Summer will start at just £17.50 (Friday and Saturday) and £10 (Sunday).
