Brighton duo Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher recently put on an excellent performance of their new single ‘Boilermaker’ at Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2021. The performance was recorded “on top of the seaside town’s famous Palace Pier, complete with neon-lit backdrop courtesy of the thousands of lightbulbs that illuminate store signs, rides, and attractions,” describes NME. 

For this year’s Big Weekend festival, Royal Blood is joined by Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, London Grammar, and Wolf Alice. Though the festival was held online this year, fans were able to tune in via BBC Radio 1, BBC iPlayer, and BBC Sounds to listen.
