HyperActive installed six Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Cloud suites at Broadcasting House in London to support Radio 1’s famous Big Weekend. The huge music festival descended on Middlesbrough’s Stewart Park over the weekend of 24th – 26th May,  with pop-perennials Little Mix featuring in a line-up of all the biggest stars, including Mark Ronson, Lewis Capaldi, Billie Eilish and a new, darker version of Mylie Cyrus.

The event’s 64,000 ticketholders enjoyed a comprehensive array of rappers, solo artists and groups over two crammed days of entertainment, with highlights including Stormzy giving the New Music tent a solid pasting on the Saturday, before final headliners The 1975 – stars of the recent Brit Awards – took to the Main Stage on Sunday.

Held once a year in a different location somewhere in the UK, the Big Weekend was once the biggest free ticketed music event in Europe, until a small fee for tickets was introduced last year.
