BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills has been announced as the final headline at this year’s NeverlanD event. The announcement was made in Club Salvation on Tuesday night.
Reverend and the Makers and Roll Deep are also set to perform. As well as these three acts, The Pauper Kings (who recently supported McFly), Itchy Feet, Taming the Savage, The Marzec group, Paul Bailey Hague, Djames and Jim Bulley are all confirmed to play, with more acts still to be confirmed.
In 2005 Mills was voted funniest DJ by Loaded Laftas. On 2 April 2012, Mills moved to the afternoon slot on BBC Radio 1, after nearly eight years on his popular drive time show. Greg James took the spot in the BBC’s drive to attract younger listeners.
Derwent College vice Chair, Lucy Hoban, told Nouse: “The theme is NeverlanD, and we hope Derwent and Langwith will be transformed into a magical place that where no student wants to leave and grow up. With the added venue of a marquee, there is a lot to be excited about. Everything is running to plan so the countdown is on!”
“We are so excited for all the Headline Acts attending Big D this year, we feel that we have catered to multiple genres and there will be something for everyone there. We feel a DJ completes the lineup perfectly.”
Big D will be held at 21:00 28th June until 03:00 29th June, and will span across three stages around campus. The Lost Boys’ Hideout, Mermaid Lagoon and Hook’s Pirate Ship are amongst the events themed areas.
