Radio 1 Statement:
“Tickets for BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Exeter are free and we work with those running major auction websites and sales outlets to have posts offering tickets for sale or trade removed. Those offering tickets for sale are breaking the Terms & Conditions they agreed to during the booking process and we reserve the right to cancel them. Radio 1 is the only place that you can get tickets for the event, and whilst tickets were snapped up in just over an hour, some further tickets will be given away on Radio 1 in the lead up to the event. Those who don’t have tickets will be able to enjoy the event on Radio 1, Radio 1’s channel in BBC iPlayer, online and on BBC Four.”
So, keep listening to Radio 1 and hopefully they’ll be a few more tickets given away.
