Jessie J and Ed Sheeran join Olympic line up

Jessie J, Professor Green and Ed Sheeran are among the acts added to the bill of the Radio 1's Olympic event, Hackney Weekend.

The event - also featuring Lana Del Rey and Jack White - is expected to be attended by 100,000 people across two days in June.

Already announced for the station's biggest ever free show, taking place at east London's Hackney Marshes, are acts including Tinie Tempah and Plan B.

More than 100 artists will play on six stages as part of the BBC's Olympic celebrations.

Fans can register an interest in tickets from Monday, with applications taking place in March. The majority of tickets are being reserved for people from Hackney and nearby Olympic boroughs.

Professor Green said: "Hackney is a great place, so events like this and the Olympics will help showcase the borough in a positive light."
