Like previous years, the tickets will be geographically weighted: 40 percent of tickets will be reserved for those living in Luton; 30 percent of tickets will be reserved for those in the surrounding areas; whilst the remaining 30 percent of tickets will be available to the rest of the UK. Ticketmaster will manage the bookings, which the BBC calls “the only official ticketing agent for Radio 1’s Big Weekend”.

The BBC said: “There is always a huge demand for tickets, with the festival selling out within minutes every year. This year, the BBC is working closely with Luton Council to ensure that Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2024 is a safe and secure environment for all those attending the festival.”

Greg James will reveal the next bunch of stars who will be joining the bill and perform on Saturday, May 25 on this morning’s breakfast show.
