The lineup for “BBC Introducing Stage” will be announced on Thursday, followed by Friday’s announcement about the “Outdoor Stage” acts.

Although the event is free fans still need a ticket to get in. The majority of tickets will be given out through a ticket ballot. Registration opens Thursday, March 31. Fans are encouraged to tune in to Scott Mills on Radio 1 at 6:30 a.m. GMT tomorrow for more information.

The festival has 40,000 tickets to give out with 10,000 pairs of tickets given out for each day of the event. When registering for the event, fans must choose which day they would like to attend as the ticket is only good for one day. Fans can only apply for one of the two days. According to the festival website, last year nearly half a million people applied for tickets.

    Not entirely true since they do have that Verizon free fest on the East coast and Ozzfest did free multi-city festival as well. Nothing to the level of this line-up, but it is still feasible. Ticketmaster does not vend for all live events you know.

    This could NEVER HAPPEN IN THE STATES!!!! with a free concert there is no way ticketbastards can get there 25% - 30% mark up just to give you a ticket. It would be so nice to have a great show like this in the states but the whores at tricked-em -bastards cant get there greedy little paws on FREE money from the true fans of music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And they wonder why they have dwindling ticket sales year after year after year?????
