Ed certainly, I can't see any way at all he wouldn't be booked, unless he wants to save doing it until next summer when the album sales have dropped off a bit or something 

It'd look good for the BBC to have Sheeran there. One Direction did it in the past at their peak.

I wish more festivals had "big" surprise opening acts but I guess the names on the line ups sell tickets

I'm applying! Never gone to R1BW before, I assume it'll be delightfully crap and I'll have a wonderful time. Can you apply for a specific day? Like I definitely want the Little Mix day, don't want to be binned off with KOL.

Past few years there has been no applying, simply first come first served on a busy ticketmaster server!

hope it's like 2015 and Taylor Swift comes and plays for half an hour to certain people who travelled 200 miles at £250 to be there :sorry:

With a YO postcode what do you reckon the chances of getting a ticket would be?

Last year they divided the tickets up into three pots: 60% for EX postcodes, 35% other SW postcodes, and 5% rest of UK. Presumably YO postcodes would fall into the 35% pot if they kept the same system, although twice as many people live in Hull as Exeter so they might want to give Hull more than 60%. Idk will be announced in March-ish.

No Leeds date on Ed Sheeran's tour so looks even more likely for this now. Not that playing one shortened set at a festival it's impossible to get tickets for is enough to justify ignoring Yorkshire other than that, mind.
