One of the hottest acts in music is heading back to the UK but not somewhere you might expect
The duo have spent the last few months travelling the world on their incredibly popular Bandito Tour but will take a break from playing venues in the US and Canada to play the festival in one of the most unlikely of locations.
The BBC choosing to host their annual Radio 1 Big Weekend in the North East town is a great coup for Boro but the town hardly the pinnacle of culture, speaking as someone who lived there for three years.
Still, the festival will really help but Middlesbrough on the map and the whole thing Twenty One Pilots does with the burning car should fit right in.
Twenty One Pilots are set to join the likes of Miley Cyrus, Stormzy, Little Mix and The 1975 at the two-day festival which takes place on the weekend of May 25-26, 2019.
Unfortunately, tickets for the festival have long since been sold out but if you have managed to snag a ticket or two, you should be in for a real treat. Not least for the Middlesbrough delicacy that is the Parmo.
