Gig giveaway

Win gig tickets to the Courteeners at <i>In the City</i>

Published on October 17th 2007.

Gig giveaway

Xfm Manchester will this month be showcasing some of the UK’s best newly signed talent at a series of gigs during Manchester’s annual music event, In The City.

Xfm’s Breakthrough at In the City, will be held at Manchester’s Roadhouse on Sunday 21 and Monday 22 October. The two day event, currently in its second year, will feature a number of new musicians on the edge of national and international acclaim.

Sunday’s line-up features London-based trio Scouting for Girls who have had a whirlwind breakthrough year with a debut album out later this month. Currently unsigned Scottish act, Figure 5 are also set to generate a buzz at this intimate venue along with hot new Welsh act, The New 1920.

Monday will see Manchester four-set, The Courteeners, making a welcome re-appearance after last year’s sell out performance. The band return from successful performances at Glastonbury and D:percussion and are set to be one of the definite highlights this year – and they always provoke heated argument too if the Manchester Confidential article on 30 August is anything to go by. Scouse indie rock act, The Wombats will also perform on Monday, having just come back from a sold out NME tour.

Tickets for these gigs are not for sale and are only available to competition winners. To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets for either Scouting for Girls or The Courteeners, please enter your details into the form below specifying which gig you would like to attend.

For other chances to win tickets listen to 97.7 Xfm Manchester.
