Win Goldfrapp Tickets with Xfm!

Published on March 8th 2006.

As you, and every other person in Manchester should know by now, it's not long to go until Xfm Manchester appears on our airwaves. The new station, broadcasting a well chosen playlist of credible rock and indie, will be launched at 8am on Wednesday 15th March and to mark the occasion Xfm are launching a competition to name and proclaim the best Manchester anthem of all time.

The song, which will be chosen by listener's votes, will have the honour of being the first ever song played on Xfm Manchester, and the details of all voters will go into a prize draw to win one of five pairs of golden tickets to a month of Xfm gigs in April.

To cast your vote for the best ever Manchester anthem, click here. If you aren't successful in winning the golden tickets however, we have a pair of tickets to give away to the Xfm Goldfrapp gig at the Ritz on April 18th. Goldfrapp's recent visit to Manchester Appollo was a complete sell out, so tickets to this event will undoubtedly be extremely hard to get hold of. To be in with a chance of winning Goldfrapp tickets, simply fill your details into the form below.

So which song will you vote for? There are surely too many contenders to choose from. Clint Boon of Inspiral Carpets fame raves, "I think that there are dozens of anthemic, up-lifting songs such as 'Sometimes' by James, 'Temptation' by New Order, but my favourite Manchester Anthem has to be 'Pounding' by The Doves as it's such a spiritual song."

The launch of Xfm Manchester will be another landmark in Manchester's musical history, with the DJ line up reading like a who's who of Manchester music. Joining Paul Tonkinson are big local names such as Clint Boon, Dave 'Hacienda' Haslam, Guy Garvey, Andy Rourke and of course the inimitable Tony Wilson.
