Radio 1 have announced the full line up for the Radio 1’s big weekend being held at Powderham Castle in May.

Fifty thousand free tickets were on offer for the 2 day Event at Powderham Castle on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May. The tickets were snapped up in around an hour on 4th April.

For this year’s event, more Big Weekend tickets than ever were made available for people living in Exeter, Teignbridge and the surrounding areas. Of the geographically weighted tickets, 60 per cent were reserved for residents living within the area covered by Exeter City and Teignbridge District Councils combined; 35 per cent were reserved for people living in the surrounding parts of the South West, which includes those with other Exeter (EX) and Torquay (TQ) postcodes, plus those with Truro (TR), Plymouth (PL), Taunton (TA) and Dorchester (DT) codes; while the remaining five per cent of tickets were for other audiences across the UK.

Neil Wyatt, Head of Live Music and Events for BBC Popular Music, says: “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing Radio 1’s Big Weekend to Devon, and this year we’ve been able to give away a higher proportion of tickets than ever before to people living close to the event. The Big Weekend is always one of the highlights of the UK festival season, and this year is shaping up to be one of the best ever – we’ve got a great line-up, a beautiful site and more young people attending from the host region than ever.”
