Ben Howard and Roller Trio are set to headline Barclaycard Mercury Prize ‘Albums of the Year Live’ gig on Wednesday 17 October and you and a lucky friend could be there to share this magical and monumental event. Free tickets will be available in a ballott but we have been lucky enough to get our mits on a pair to give away to two special IAmMusic.TV followers.
All you have to do is answer the following question:

Email us the answer to firstname.lastname@example.org ~ Winners will be picked at random after 14th October. Travel to and from the event is not included.
The event will be held at LSO Luke’s in London to help raise money for War Child, supporting the fantastic work they do assisting children affected by conflict around the world.
