London, Mar 31 (ANI): ‘Poker Face’ singer Lady Gaga will be making her only live UK festival appearance this year - in Carlisle.
Gaga, 25, will headline the main stage for Radio 1’s Big Weekend in the Cumbrian city.
“I’m so excited. I can’t wait,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
The two-day event, at Carlisle Airfield, starts on May 14 and will also feature Foo Fighters, The Black Eyed Peas, Tinie Tempah and Plan B.
“This will be Lady GaGa’s only UK festival performance this year. It’s going to be a very special moment,” Radio 1 live events editor Neil Wyatt said.
“We take huge artists to places they wouldn’t normally go. It’s very exciting for Carlisle,” he stated.
And BBC bosses are expecting more than 500,000 ticket applications.
“This is without doubt the single biggest event to happen in Carlisle this side of the Millennium,” the city’s tourism chief Marie Whitehead added. (ANI)
