Two of the world's biggest pop stars are coming to Wales to headline a two-day festival.

Swansea is hosting this year's Radio 1's The Biggest Weekend - and that means the town will be welcoming Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift.

Whether you like their music or not, it's hard to argue with the pop stars' success.

Swansea is one of four places around the UK hosting the Biggest Weekend, which the BBC says is the biggest music festival it's ever organised.

The other locations are Perth in Scotland, Coventry in England and Belfast in Northern Ireland

The festival will take play on May 26 and 27 and tickets for the Swansea Biggest Weekend will go on sale on February 12.

Tickets are priced at £18 - which is a bargain when you consider the size of the first two acts already announced.

This is no standard festival, and getting tickets is a little different to usual. Here's what you need to know.

The festival uses a 'pot' system to allocate tickets to those in local areas with tickets 'geographically weighted' to those living close.

So essentially, if you live in or close to Swansea you will have a better chance of getting tickets.

The tickets are split into Pot's

Pot 1: The first number of tickets will initially be reserved for residents of Swansea, i.e in the council area.

Pot 2: The second set of tickets is then reserved for those living in the wider surrounding area of the event.

Pot 3: The remainder is unreserved and will be sold as general tickets.

You can find out more information about the event on the BBC's website.
