Want free tickets for Liverpool Sound City?

THE first ever Sound City music festival and conference is just weeks away. It will take place in Liverpool from 27-30 May with some of the hottest acts and hottest hopefuls all lined up to grace a city which turns out music legends in its stride.

This four-day event, which is part funded by Merseyside Acme, will see the city play host to a number of established acts, such as Reverend and the Makers, The Wombats, DJ Yoda, and Hercules and Love Affair as well as breakthrough talent from across the globe, and all played out in Second Life for anyone across the globe who can't make it here.

As well as labels and artists, Sound City plans to stage lots of debates including Liverpool vs Manchester, featuring the likes of Peter Hooton, Ian McNabb, Peter Hook and John Robb who will all argue the toss over which city has produced the best music. The Smiths, versus The Bunnymen? The Farm versus The Mondays? The Beatles versus the world? Is there a contest? Does the fact that this event is being staged in Liverpool say it all?

But that is far from all. Other conferences, at the Hard Day's Night Hotel, will feature keynotes from luminaries from the music business, such as Midge Ure.

There will also be label parties taking place such as Domino (home to The Arctic Monkeys), Deltasonic (The Coral, The Zutons), Moshi Moshi and Wall of Sound (Reverend and the Makers, The Infadels).

So would you like to go? Today we are offering you the chance to win one of three pairs of gold wristbands which give you VIP access to all the gigs and parties across the whole four days. Phew.

To be in with a chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes, tell us, in your humble opinion, which is the best musical city (Liverpool or Manchester) and why in the RANT box below.

Actually, if you haven't got a humble opinion, but would quite like to enter the competition anyway, just fill in the COMPETTION boxes beneath that.

Got it?

Closing date: Friday May 17

Re Liverpool v Manchester I think it depends entirely on your mood of the day. Liverpool equals upbeat, Manchester equals introspective (or miserable)!

If a City can produce bands such as The Real People, that do not get noticed then it just goes to show the quality of bands that come out of this City. Liverpool continue to produce music that appeal to people right accross the board.Most people have only heard "There She Goes" by The La's, and still most of the bands today, from all over the country, cite them as one of their biggest influences.No contest!!!!
