BBC Radio 1's Hackney WeekendRadio 1's Big Weekend free music festival comes to London's Hackney Marshes in 2012 for the biggest event of this kind they've ever staged, to mark the London 2012 Olympics. A host of British and international artists including Leona Lewis, Will.i.am, Jessie J, Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran and Tinie Tempah will be performing across the six stages to 100,000 people. Tickets to the event are free (plus £2.50 handling fee), but demand will be high and luck will play a part if you're successful in securing one. To be in with a chance of getting a ticket you must register your details and upload a photo on the BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend website before 11pm on Monday 19th March. Only those who have registered will be able to apply for tickets (maximum of two) online or by phone, and if you're a Hackney resident or live in the other five Olympic boroughs you'll have a better chance of getting in. More than 25 acts have been announced in total, with more to be confirmed in due course.
