Radio 1’s Big Weekend is set to return to Dundee in 2020, 14 years after it last took over the city, according to reports.

Plans to host the three-day music event, which attracts some of the biggest names in the industry, at the city’s Camperdown Park have been submitted to planning chiefs.

The BBC has refused to confirm the location of this year’s concert series, due to take place over the weekend of May 22-24.

However, The Courier reports talks to bring the event - headlined in Middlesbrough last year by the likes of Miley Cyrus and The 1975 - back to the city are at “an advanced stage”.

Events management firm Festival Republic, which also produces the Download, Latitude and Wireless festivals, has submitted proposals for a three-day event at the park.

According to the newspaper, they are seeking permission to erect four stages, bars, food stalls and funfair rides.

Glasgow hosted the event in 2014 when it was headlined by Coldplay and Katy Perry, while it also visited Scone Palace near Perth in 2018 after it was split across four cities in the UK to capitalise on the absence of Glastonbury.

In 2006, Camperdown Park played host to Muse, Paolo Nutini, Sugababes and Razorlight among a number of other major acts across the weekend.
