Radio 1 Presents Arcade Fire

Arcade Fire will be performing a special intimate session at BBC Maida Vale for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.

We have 30 pairs of tickets to give away to this exclusive event.

Tickets will be allocated by random draw with 75% of tickets going to Greater London postcodes and 25% to the rest of the UK.

You can register at any time until 8pm on Tuesday 11 July.

Applicants must be 18 or over. All successful ticket holders will be subject to a bag search and photo ID check by security.

Please note this is a pre-recorded session which will be broadcast on Radio 1 on Tuesday 2 August. Ticket holders will be able to watch the session in the recording studio with the band.

Admission to this recording is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.

Terms and Conditions

The ticket registration is open to all residents of the UK, including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, aged 18 and over. Proof of age, identity and eligibility may be requested in the form of a passport or photo card driving licence.

Applications will be geographically weighted – 75% of successful applications will be selected from Greater London postcodes and 25% from the rest of the UK.

Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis. As not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. We can’t guarantee that you’ll get in, and also please be aware that on some BBC shows audience members start queuing well before the doors open.

Applications must be received by no later than 8pm on Tuesday 11 July. Applications received after that time will not be eligible.

The tickets are free and cannot be sold. If you buy tickets from anyone they will not be valid and entry to the event with such a ticket will be refused.

Only one application will be accepted per person per event. If successful, applicants will each receive one pair of tickets. Multiple applications will not be eligible for selection. Applicants must give their main residential address when applying. Please do not apply for tickets if you think you may be unable to use them.

Successful applicants will be sent a pair of tickets as an e-ticket on Wednesday 12 July. If you have not received a ticket by that date your application has not been successful. No correspondence will be entered into.

All ticket holders will be asked to arrive by no later than 6pm on the day of the event.
