How to apply for Big Weekend tickets

Madonna to headline Big Weekend

Madonna is to headline the main stage at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Maidstone, in Kent.
The international superstar, who went to number one in the UK singles chart with 4 Minutes on Sunday, will play the two-day event on Saturday 10 May.
30,000 fans are expected at Mote Park to enjoy more than 50 other bands and solo artists on 10 and 11 May.
Other acts taking part include The Fratellis, Robyn, Duffy, Scouting For Girls, The Feeling and The Hoosiers.
Listeners can register for tickets for one week from 8am on 21 April until 10am on 28 April.
More than 470,000 people applied for tickets in 2007.
Organisers say demand is expected to be even bigger this year. 100,000 people have registered already today.
Successful applicants will receive a pair of tickets for either Saturday or Sunday.
Gates open at 12pm and close at 10pm.
Tickets will be allocated randomly, but weighted in favour of those living in Maidstone, Kent and the surrounding areas.
A smaller amount will be distributed nationally.
Listeners registering across the UK will also have the chance to win tickets via Radio 1 on-air competitions in the week before the event.
With over 30,000 free tickets being made available for listeners, if you are a successful applicant then you'll truly be one of the lucky ones!
'But for those that can't get to the event, there will be access via BBC TV, Red Button, Radio 1 and online.'
