Register with BBC Radio 1 for a chance to see Flo Rida, Sean Paul, Tinchy Stryder, Mindless Behaviour and Devlin

Flo Rida and a host of other urban music acts including Sean Paul, Tinchy Stryder, Mindless Behaviour and Devlin were added today to the line-up for BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend 2012.

Other acts announced for the event on Hackney Marshes this June include Chip, Boy Better Know Feat Skepta & JME and Azealia Banks.

The biggest ever free-ticketed event with 100,000 tickets up for grabs takes place on June 23 and 24, the same weekend Glastonbury – which is not taking place this year - is usually held.

They will join the likes of previously-confirmed acts Professor Green, will.i.am, Lana Del Rey, Tinie Tempah, Plan B, Leona Lewis, Florence & The Machine and Jessie J.

The weekend will feature over 100 UK and international artists performing on six BBC stages including the Radio 1 Main Stage, Radio 1Xtra Arena, Dance Arena, In New Music We Trust Stage and the BBC Introducing Stage.
