    The 25-year-old will headline the main stage, alongside The Foo Fighters, Black Eyed Peas, Plan B and Tinie Tempah.

    She told fans: ‘I’m really excited. I can’t wait.’

    BBC bosses are equally as pleased, anticipating up to 500,000 ticket requests for the two-day event at Carlisle Airfield, which will take place between 14th and 15th May.

    Radio 1 Live Events editor Neil Wyatt commented: ‘This will be Lady Gaga’s only UK festival performance this year. It’s going to be a very special moment.

    ‘We take huge artists to places they wouldn’t normally go. It’s very exciting for Carlisle.’
