Fans have shared their excitement online at securing tickets for the 2017 Big Weekend.

Not everyone was happy though…

Tickets for the annual event were free and limited to two per person, with the majority reserved for people living in and around the city of Hull, the UK’s capital of Culture 2017.

Radio 1 bosses have advised people not to risk buying tickets via social media or resale sites.

“Those offering tickets for sale or as prizes are breaking the terms and conditions they agreed to during the booking process and we reserve the right to cancel them.”

Before adding that tickets will be available to win over the coming weeks.

“We do have a final few tickets to give away in on-air competitions on Radio 1 – keep listening for further details about these.”
