Radio 1 will be making sure the majority of free tickets go to residents of Preston and the surrounding areas.

Jason Carter, Live Music and Events Editor, said: "Radio 1 is delighted to announce Preston as host city for our seventh Big Weekend. The event has grown from strength to strength over the past few years, with massive line-ups with some of the biggest artists in the UK and from around the world performing.

"Radio 1 will be decamping for this weekend with all of our DJs to Moor Park. As well as bringing a stellar line-up it'll be an opportunity for Radio 1 to put a national focus on the North West and all that people are proud of there."
