How do you get tickets to Radio 1's Big Weekend 2016 in Exeter?

BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend is back for 2016, and it’s in Exeter!

This year's festival will be taking place on 28 and 29 May 2016 at Exeter's Powderham Castle.

Further information including the full line-up and ticketing information will officially be announced on 21 March, but if you're wondering how the process works, we'll tell you.

On a given date tbc, booking opens at 8:05am and tickets will be available by phone; however R1 strongly recommend booking online via the Radio 1 website if you can because their online system is able to handle far more simultaneous transactions.

There is no charge for the event itself, but last year a handling fee of £7 per pair of tickets will be applied to cover ticket handling, postage and other associated ticketing costs.  It is worth noting that last year, only 5% of the tickets were allocated to "the rest of the UK" which means if you live nowhere near Exeter, you're going to struggle!

We'll have more details on how you can get tickets on 21st March.
