Get free tickets to Road to V Gigs!

28 April 2006

Virgin Mobile's Road to V competition is about to get seriously exciting, as the 14 finalists compete for a chance to play at V Festival in front of a star-studded panel of judges - and you, if you fancy going along to the gigs in London and Liverpool!

The live contests will take place across 5 gigs at 5 Road to V gigs at the Carling Academy Islington on 2nd, 3rd and 4th May and the Carling Academy Liverpool on 9th and 10th May. The Charlatans' Tim Burgess and Virgin Radio DJ will be among the 'faces' on the judging panel. It's free to get on the guest list, but you must register in advance on a first-come-first-served basis - see below for details.

The schedule and line-ups of the 14 bands are as follows. Click on them for more info:

TO GET YOUR FREE TICKETS FOR YOU AND A MATE JUST CHOOSE A VENUE AND DATE THEN TEXT IT TO 80310 e.g. 'ISLINGTON2'.

Virgin Mobile will text you to tell you that your name's on the list - so all you need to do on the night is flash your phone (and that text) - and you're in. Texts cost just 3p from a Virgin Mobile phone and standard rate from other networks.

If you're a Virgin Mobile customer, you can also flash your phone at the bar for a free beer or two. And when you've worked up a hunger, flash it again at the Virgin Mobile Kebab Van for some free food. 

If you're not a Virgin Mobile customer you can still attend the gigs for free as above.

Each gig is being filmed by Channel 4 and will be covered online here, so if you're going to one, we'll see you there!
