BBC Radio 1 announces their Rock All-Dayer

By Ben Tipple

This is probably the most ridiculous gig that will happen all year. Ridiculous in the best way, of course.

The folk of BBC Radio 1 are revamping Radio 1 Rocks, shifting things slightly into the Radio 1 Rock All-Dayer. As well as the usual promise of exclusively playing guitar led music all day, they’ll also be hosting a intimate show in the evening.

Set to take place on Wednesday 8th June, the show will see blink-182 play an acoustic set, plus plugged in sets by Asking Alexandria, A Day To Remember, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Moose Blood, Creeper and Against The Current.

That line-up would be good anywhere right? Well, to make things even more mind-bending, it’s all taking place at the station’s Maida Vale studios. That means there’s only 40 pairs of tickets up for grabs, all of which are available to apply for via the BBC Radio 1 website.

Head over there before 11:55PM on Sunday 5th June to be in with a shout of grabbing a pair. If you can’t get hold of them, because there’s only 40 pairs, you can listen to it all on Radio 1.

In the meantime, listen to blink.
