Event Information:

On 23rd May , it was announced that for Radio 1 would be replacing the Big Weekend with a 'Hackney Weekend' to form part of the London Festival, in the build up to the Olympics. The festival will take place on the Hackney Marshes on 23 and 24 June . Florence and  The Machine were initially announced as playing on Saturday 23rd, but a double booking at another European festival meant that they were moved to the bill for Sunday 24th. The Ting Tings were initially announced as to be playing on Saturday 23rd, but due to logistical reasons beyond their control they have had to pull out.

Hackney Marshes is an area of grassland on the western bank of the River Lea in the London Borough of Hackney. It was incorporated into the Lee Valley Park in 1967. It was originally a true marsh, but was extensively drained from Medieval times, and rubble was dumped here from buildings damaged by air raids during World War II.

The principal area of the marsh lies below Lea Bridge Road between the Old River Lea, and the Hackney Cut – an artificial channel of the Lee Navigation, dug about 1770, to avoid a loop in the natural watercourse. The southern extent is marked by the A12; although the industrial land around Hackney Wick Stadium was originally an extension of the marsh; now to form a part of the Olympic Park for the Summer Olympics.
