Paul Weller, The 1975, Sam Fender are among the stars who have donated prizes to the Vans for Bands raffle.
As well as tickets to see Paul Weller, The 1975 have offered up an exclusive goody bag. Sam Fender, meanwhile, has donated a signed limited-edition vinyl and poster bundle. Elbow’s contribution is a beautiful A2 lithograph poster signed by the band.
5 Seconds Of Summer (5SOS) meanwhile, have donated 4 tickets to see them perform at a venue near you during their No Shame Tour of the UK in 2021. The lucky winner will also get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join the pre-show soundcheck experience.
Also up for grabs at Vans For Bands are a pair of tickets to see Hans Zimmer, who has created some of the best-known and most influential film scores of our time, at either London’s O2 on Friday, 5 March 2021 or at Manchester Arena on Sunday 7 March 2021. The composer – who received his 11th Oscar nomination in 2018 for the film score of Christopher Nolan’s box office hit Dunkirk – has reinvented the format for live film music performance.
Other prizes – which can be found here – include a drum skin and guitar signed by Frank Turner, a 2018 UK Tour Poster signed by Blossoms, and even the chance to hire a luxury splitter van for seven days. The Vans For Bands raffle is open now and closes at 6pm BST on Friday, 29 May.
Ed Thomson, director and co-owner of Vans For Bands, said: “Despite the fact that the live music industry has been decimated by the effects of social distancing due to COVID-19, we are so pleased to see everyone coming together to offer such exciting raffle prizes and memorabilia. A huge thank you to the artists and companies for their generous donations without which this raffle would not be possible.”
Last month, Vans For Bands also hosted their live-streamed music event Bustival, which saw the likes of Frank Turner performing to raise funds for Britain’s NHS.
