WEEKEND UPDATE
Sam Smith Drops Out From the Line-Up as BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend Nears

Island U.K.'s Catfish and the Bottlemen have been added to the main stage lineup at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend. The group was originally supposed to play the In New Music We Trust stage, but agreed to the opportunity when Capitol's Sam Smith regrettably had to to drop out due to a hemorrhage on his vocal chords.

The festival will take place 5/23-24 in Norwich's Earlham Park. Click here for the full lineup.

And now, a message from a post-op Smith:

Just woken up from op. I'm high on pain killers and listening to Whitney Houston hahahahaha
