A statement on the Radio 1 Big Weekend site reads: “We have 8,000 tickets available to purchase for Friday and 39,500 tickets available to purchase, per day for Saturday and Sunday but we expect demand will massively exceed supply and that tickets will go very quickly – so there is an element of luck in getting them.
“Friday tickets will cost £12.50 (+£2.50 booking fee per ticket). Refunds will only be considered if the event is cancelled or postponed. Friday tickets will be sold in pairs (or individually) and you can only purchase a maximum of two tickets per person.
“Saturday and Sunday Tickets will cost £21.50 (+£4.50 booking fee per ticket). Refunds will only be considered if the event is cancelled or postponed. Tickets will be sold in pairs (or individually) and you can only purchase a maximum of two tickets for either Saturday or Sunday (but not for both).
“This restriction is in place in order to give as many people as possible a fair chance to buy tickets.”
