UK Festival Awards Tomorrow. Fancy It?

The first ever UK Festival Awards ceremony takes place tomorrow night and we've got 20 pairs of tickets to give away. Brakes, Nizlopi, Rob Da Bank and loads more will be performing at the festival party of the year...

The UK Festival Awards 2006 takes place at Islington Academy, London, tomorrow night (Thursday, 19 October).

A plethora of sought after gongs, from ‘Best Headliner’ to ‘Best New Festival’ to ‘Best Toilets’, will be handed out to a baying pit of festival organisers and bands – and you could be among them.

As well as two rooms of music featuring Brakes, Nizlopi, The Levellers, Rob Da Bank, C/O/R/D, Nate James, a very special Happy Mondays collaboration and much more, there will be some secret and very special guest presenters popping in.

One room is being curated by our friends at Shelter, who hope to raise awareness for their Million Children campaign, while the mezzanine will be hosted by Bacardi’s cocktail-spinning bar legends. 

To win your way into this otherwise industry-only bash, simply email with one sentence explaining why you should win a festival award for being the ‘Best Fan’. The funniest or most original 20 entries will win a pair of tickets each to the awards ceremony.

You must be over-18. Visit for more.
