Radio 1‘s Big Weekend event lurks in London’s Hackney Marshes this year on Saturday 23rd June and Sunday 24th June, with a bursting line-up that includes Ed Sheeran, Professor Green, Michael Kiwunaka, D’banj, Dappy, Plan B, Jessie J, Labrinth, Florence And The Machine, Tinie Tempah, Emeli Sande, Lana Del Rey, Michael Kiwanuka and Rizzle Kicks.

“This is a concert in the heart of East London and we will use it as an opportunity to shine a light on and celebrate the young people of east London too,” says Radio 1’s event director for 2012, Jason Carter.

Ticket registration for Hackneys Radio 1 weekend is now available. Open for six weeks, music lovers can register for the chance to obtain up to two of the 100,000 tickets available.

To register:
– First upload a photo and enter details into Radio 1’s website . This will be available up until 11pm on the 19th of March.
– Those who register in time will then be able to apply for up to two tickets online or by phone on the 25th and 26th of March.

Registering does not guarantee a ticket, and successful applicants will be notified at a later date.

I guess money really can’t buy happiness – or the ability to watch the above live – and on the same day. Which pretty much constitutes as the same thing. Good luck folks!
