Carmarthenshire residents with an SA postcode are in with a chance of getting early tickets for the biggest festival to ever come to Swansea.

BBC’s The Biggest Weekend is heading to Swansea this May and 26,000 tickets are to be made available for the two-day music event.

Residents of Swansea will be given the first priority tickets for the festival which is taking place at Singleton Park on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27.

In order to ensure this, organisers have designed a pot system with phases of availability depending on postcode.

Pot 1 is reserved for residents of the respective council area, in this case Swansea Council.

Pot 2 is for those living in the wider surrounding area of the event.

If you have an SA postcode, but not living in an area covered by Swansea Council, this is the Pot for you.

Also included in Pot 2 are people with a Cardiff (CF) Newport (NP) or Llandrindod Wells (LD) postcode.

Entering any of these four postcodes will allow access to tickets reserved for those area only.

The reminder of the tickets in Pot 3 are unreserved.

In order to apply for tickets in Pots 1 and 2, you’ll need to enter your postcode on the Ticketmaster website.

Your purchase card must be registered to the same address, or else you will be asked for proof to verify that you are a resident of the respective area for each pot.

Tickets obtained by using fake address may be cancelled without notice.

Pots 1 and 2 will be in operation for seven days from Monday, February 12 until noon on Monday, February 19.

Tickets for both the events with Ed Sheeran heading the Saturday and Taylor Swift headlining the Sunday will cost £18 each plus a booking fee.

Ed said: “So excited to be part of The Biggest Weekend this summer.

“I’ve always loved performing at Big Weekend with Radio 1 and this year it’s going to be even bigger. Bring it on Swansea.”

Nick Grimshaw, BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast presenter, added: “You know it’s the start of the summer when we put on a massive festival, and we’re bringing two of the biggest artists in the world to Swansea.

“Taylor and Ed plus a whole massive line-up to be announced make The Biggest Weekend the event of the year.”

Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2’s Breakfast presenter added: “The Biggest Weekend is shaping up very nicely indeed.

“I can’t wait to find out who else is going to be performing.”

Tickets go on sale Monday, February 12 at 7.45am.

Craig David, Jess Glynne, Years and Years, Niall Horan, J Hus, Wolf Alice and James Bay will also be performing across the weekend.

Further acts and performers for each day of the festival are to be announced before the tickets are released.

The one-off event will be covered extensively on BBC TV and radio, with full sets available on the BBC iPlayer.
