Hey! Manchester’s 10th birthday

It’s somehow 10 years to the month that Hey! Manchester promoted it’s first show: featuring Jens Lekman, Bill Wells and Vinny Peculiar at The Kings Arms. Since then, we’ve organised around 1,000 events, including Manchester debuts for Final Fantasy/Owen Pallett, Espers, Vetiver, Band of Horses, Frightened Rabbit, Mark Kozelek/Sun Kil Moon, Efterklang, Akron/Family, Johann Johannsson, Murcof, Bowerbirds, Grouper, Momus, The Burning Hell and countless others.

To celebrate the occasion, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to each of our 30 upcoming shows – including C Duncan, The Wave Pictures, Kiran Leonard, The Besnard Lakes, BC Camplight and Robert Forster. Simply fill in the form below and then keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for the results – we’ll be announcing five winners each day, starting on Wednesday 17 February. Good luck!

PLEASE NOTE: This competition has now ended and the winners have been notified.
