There are two stages to registering. Firstly, users need to go to the Radio 1 website, where they will be asked to enter their details and upload a photo.

Those who register will then be able to apply for up to two tickets online or by phone on the 25 and 26 March.

Tickets for the event are free, but there will be a small handling fee.

The line-up for the festival was announced on Friday with Jessie J, Ed Sheeran and David Guetta all set to perform.

Other artists playing at the event include Professor Green, Labrinth, Florence And The Machine, Tinie Tempah and Calvin Harris.

More than 25 acts have been announced in total, with more to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

100,000 tickets are available for the festival which takes place on 23 and 24 June.

The majority of the tickets are being allocated to people living in Hackney and the surrounding boroughs.
