The event is recognised for showcasing up-and-coming talent, having first booked The Kooks in 2005 even before they were signed!

Last year legendary Weekender parties were hosted by Xbox and Beachbombing, and Radio 1 are set to return for 2009 after a courtyard party of 3500 people broadcast on-air!
