Win a Pair of Tickets to The Great Escape!

The Great Escape is Europe’s leading festival for up and coming bands and this year boasts a killer line up. Thanks to Amazon Student we are giving one lucky Verse reader a pair of full passes to this year’s festival for them and a friend to enjoy.

Amazon Student will be taking over the Brighthelm venue from the 14th to the 16th May. Over the course of the festival, the stage will see plenty of up and coming artists, including Shannon Saunders and Kadebostany just to name a couple. For the full line up, head over to TGE’s website.

Amazon Student is Amazon’s membership programme created especially for UK students. It gives uni students a six-month free trial of Amazon’s Prime service, which offers benefits including unlimited one-day delivery, and then the opportunity to convert to a cut-price yearly full membership for the discounted price of £39 to gain access to services including Prime Instant Video. It’s a great deal, and one that always comes in handy for last minute present buying and those times when you really don’t want to wait more than 24 hours to receive something.

Follow the instructions below for the chance to win! The more things you do, the more entries you get. Winners will be contacted via email.
