BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend up for awards

THE BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend has secured four nominations in this year's UK Festival Awards, which celebrate the best in music event management.

Hackney Weekend has been nominated for best major festival; best new festival; best dance event; and best headline performance.

It was Radio 1's largest ever free, ticketed, live music event, with an attendance of 100,000. The event was headlined by global superstars Jay-Z and Rihanna and featured more than 100 UK and international artists in total, across six stages.

Hackney Weekend was part of the London 2012 Festival to mark the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and was delivered in partnership with Hackney Council.

The nominees were short listed by a panel of UK music journalists and the winners of each category will be decided by a public vote which is open until 31 October.
