Radio 1 sells 50,000 tickets in 40 minutes

BBC Radio 1 has sold 50,000 tickets in 40 minutes for the upcoming Big Weekend in Norwich.

The tickets, which are classed as free but attract a £7 admin fee per pair, were released at 8:05am this morning during The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.

The station has secured artists Taylor Swift, Florence and the Machine, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Years & Years plus many more to appear at the event.

Neil Wyatt, Head of Live Music and Events, BBC Popular Music said: “It is brilliant to see the tickets go so quickly. One of the main reasons we are bringing Radio 1’s Big Weekend to Norwich is because we know that there is a real appetite for new music and it’s great to see the excitement in the city. If you weren’t able to secure a ticket for the event, we will be revealing information about Radio 1’s Academy including the sessions that will be available very soon, so keep listening to Radio 1 if you want to be involved.”

Radio 1’s Big Weekend is now in its 12th year and will be produced in partnership with Norwich City Council. It will be live on Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra and streamed in vision online, with highlights also broadcast on BBC Three.
