No Ziggy, that's for a different event. 

 

Jake Bugg and The 1975 (ask your grandkids, folks) have both been added to the bill for One Big Weekend. 

 

The full lineup will be announced much nearer the time.

I was just going to say " hang on a minute I thought the BBC Big Weekend festival was free" when I read MV's post.

Easy to get confused though.

@Lynne, don't you mean "free"? ;)

Well it's free in the same sense that pensioner bus pass fares are free, and over 60 prescriptions are free, and state schooling is free, and NHS treatment is free (but not dental), and lollipop school crossing patrols are free and so on and so forth.

Tax payers money being used to provide a service that not all tax payers will use or are necessarily eligible to use.

(note to self - now await the responses to the above)

Just out of interest, is there a limit to the number of people who will be able to attend. The reason I ask is because I have been to a number of events at Powderham & obviously there is a limit to the amount of parking it can take & also when it comes to finishing, there is a mad scramble to get out of the exits (usually 2). So therefore the "free" entrance will presumably be only for a certain number & once that is exceeded, no-one else can attend.

It's entry by ticket only Cassandra.  Which will be available to secure via on-line applications later this month. I believe that it's a total of 50,000 tickets over the two days and lots of local b&b's and campsites are already reporting mass bookings for that weekend.
