Madonna Signs On For Radio 1's 'Big Weekend'
The Material Girl hitmaker, who on Sunday scooped the number one spot in the U.K. singles chart with 4 Minutes, has agreed to headline Radio 1's Big Weekend in Mote Park in Maidstone, England - instead of larger, more famous festivals such as Glastonbury.
The singer, who played to arena audiences of thousands on The Confessions Tour in 2006, spoke of her dream to scale down her gigs in March and will now perform at the two-day event on May 10.
More than 470,000 people applied for tickets last year, with 30,000 expected to receive tickets for the festival.
Madonna will share the spotlight with Nelly, Usher, Robyn and more than 50 other bands and solo artists.
