Recommended Posts



Tickets are free, but you do have to register to get one


Wont know about acts etc til end of April however it takes only a few minutes to register so worth it just in case. The ticket process goes on postcodes so maybe if we do have peeps living around Preston area they could register kinda on behalf off ppl. who can attend...

Big Weekend line-up announced

Monday, 30 Apr 2007 08:02


Mika is set to play the Big Weekend in May


The line-up for BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend has been announced with Mika, the Fratellis and Razorlight set to play.


Coming to Preston on May 19th and 20th, 7,500 pairs of tickets for each day of the free music festival will be dished out to listeners who register online with priority given to local residents.


Picking the names from a hat, Chris Moyles and his comedy crew announced that indie rockers the Fratellis and Razorlight would be joining Wales' finest, the Stereophonics, and Grace Kelly singer Mika in Preston.


Leeds-based indie boys the Kaiser Chiefs and camptastic pop band Scissor Sisters are also set to rock the northern city alongside hip hop singer Just Jack and Natasha Beddingfield.


With some of the biggest music acts due to play, demand for the first British music festival of the year is expected to be massive.


As the biggest free-ticketed event in Europe, the main stage will see a host of pop and rock stars strut their stuff while a dance party will be held in a separate tent. Breaking artists will also play the In New Music We Trust stage.


More acts are expected to be announced throughout the day by DJ Jo Whiley as listeners start to register for tickets.


Last year's Big Weekend in Dundee saw thousands of music fans watch Franz Ferdinand, the Kooks and Mylo.

I've registered for the Sunday - I'm kind of local (Wigan) so have a slightly better chance than most, fingers crossed.

I will get any local friends I can think of to register, never know, may be spare tickets around if we get lucky!:biggrin2:

I ticked for both days as we don't know what day Mika is playing yet, I don't mind though because the line up is fantastic. The Stereophonics are playing!I hope they play Vegas 2 Times, I love that song!
