Britney Spears has reportedly been approached by people from BBC Radio 1 to headline their Big Weekend in Swindon. "Everyone's got their fingers crossed that Britney will come on board," a source tells The Sun.
If the rumor is true and Britney says yes to the offer, she will join previously-announced performers Snow Patrol and N-Dubz. Up to date, no statement has been offered by both Radio 1's and Britney's camps concerning the rumor.
Radio 1's Big Weekend will be held for two days on May 9 and 10 at Swindon's Lydiard Park, promising to bring "some of the biggest international and U.K. artists". Other musicians to sing at the event will be announced soon.
Commenting on the upcoming concerts, Phil Young, a councilor at Swindon borough council, shares his excitement. "This is a fantastic announcement for Swindon and we are working in partnership with Radio 1 to make sure that this is the best Big Weekend ever staged. As soon as Radio 1 approached the Council we were determined to make this happen in Swindon," he states.
Aside from the news of Big Weekend, Britney Spears, in the meantime, is in the middle of finishing her tour to support her latest installment "Circus". She is taking The Pussycat Dolls on the road to complete the American leg and will have Ciara joining her for the European leg.
