Event background

BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend, also commonly known as R1BW (previously known as One Big Weekend, for 2012 as Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, and for 2018 as BBC Music's Biggest Weekend) is a music festival run by BBC Radio 1. It is held once a year, in a different location within the United Kingdom each time. It was previously the biggest free ticketed music event in Europe, until a fee for tickets was introduced in 2018, and always includes a host of new artists.

The festival is a spin-off of Radio 1's "One Big Sunday", where every Sunday during July and August, a different town would host the roadshow, usually next to a beach or in a large park. These were also free, but non-ticketed.

Tickets to the festival are, notably, free (except the small booking fee which was introduced from the 2012 event onwards) but are usually now restricted to one pair per person. Prior to 2006, a ticket booth would be set up in an easy location in the centre of the hosting city, and anybody who wished to obtain a pair of tickets would queue up, before a Radio 1 DJ gave them out (pairs of tickets for the Saturday given away on a Saturday and on the following day for the Sunday), on a first-come first-served basis. The theory there was that the majority of tickets would go to local residents, as people from further away would not make the journey. However, as more and more 'non-local' residents came to the giveaways, and the capacity at the events grew year-on-year, it was decided that a different system was needed. From 2006, therefore, pairs of tickets have been given away through an online lottery. People wishing to attend register on the BBC Radio 1 website and pairs of tickets are then randomly allocated and given out. In order to make sure that those who live locally get the majority of tickets, the applications are split into categories of 'local postcodes' and 'other postcodes' and the majority of the tickets (usually 95%) are reserved for the former.

The location for the 2019 event is Middlesbrough. On the 28th of February, 2019 the first eight acts were announced. It was announced that Miley Cyrus and The 1975 would be headlining, and that they would be joined by Future, Mumford and Sons, Little Mix, Khalid, Zara Larsson and Mabel. On the 11th of March, 2019 the remaining acts were announced; Stormzy, Bring Me the Horizon, Billie Eilish, Anne-Marie, Charli XCX, James Arthur, Lewis Capaldi, Jess Glynne, Sam Fender, Sigala, The Amazons, Vampire Weekend, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Ellie Goulding, HRVY, Pale Waves, CamelPhat, Fredo, Jax Jones, Rita Ora, Sean Paul, Sigrid and Two Door Cinema Club. In addition to announcing the remaining acts, the days of which the artists would be performing was released. 100 free tickets for each day were released on the 13th of March, selling out in a few minutes. On the 14th of March 32,000 tickets for each day were released for a cost of £22.50 per ticket, with the limit of 2 tickets per person, all 64,000 tickets sold out in 90 minutes. On the 16th of April, the last 3 acts were announced; Foals, Dave and Twenty One Pilots.

On the 19th of April, during Radio 1's Rave Lounge, Annie Mac and Danny Howard announced that a further day had been added on the event. Acts included MK, Mark Ronson, Danny Howard, Annie Mac, Purple Disco Machine and Wilkinson. Tickets were released the following Friday. On 21 May, it was announced that Fredo would no longer be performing and was replaced with AJ Tracey.
