It is taking place on the late May bank holiday weekend (25-28 May) over four sites in four nations across four days with over 175,000 tickets available to the public and will be the BBC's biggest ever celebration of music across TV, radio, online and mobile.

The Swansea shows take place on Saturday May 26 and Sunday May 27.

Performances by Swift and Sheeran have been confirmed with more acts to be announced.

Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Major Projects, said: "Attracting the BBC Music's The Biggest Weekend to Swansea is a major coup for the city.

"This is a huge festival. It's fantastic news, not just for people in the Swansea area, but for Swansea traders as well because of the extra spending it will generate in our shops, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, hotels and other businesses.

"This major event, coupled with Swansea's other major events this summer, including Man Engine, Little Mix and The Killers at Liberty stadium, the Wales Airshow and Now the Hero / Nawr Yr Arwr clearly justifies Swansea's position as Wales' Capital of Culture and a city capable of attracting and delivering world class entertainment and events.

"Major events such as these will also raise Swansea's profile as a place to live, visit, invest, and study and further boost a visitor economy that's already over £400m a year to Swansea's economy."

Tickets for The Biggest Weekend go on sale on Monday February 12 priced at £18 plus £4.50 booking fee.
