Thanks to our friends at Ginger Pigeon Promotions, the Chronicle has got THREE sets of FOUR 'Atmosphere' festival tickets available to give away in our latest brilliant competition.
The 'Atmosphere' festival promises to be a live music event to rival any other in the north when the mega line-up of bands and DJs arrive to strut their stuff at Mossley FC’s Seel Park on Saturday, May 26.
Headlining ‘Atmosphere’ are two terrific and massively popular chart bands from the last couple of decades – Cast and Scouting for Girls.
Also on the stellar bill will be 90s faves Republica, Manchester heroes A Certain Ratio, Northern Uproar, as well as highly-rated up-and-coming outfits Corella, Time for Action, the Smashing Lads and ace Oasis cover band, Oaces.
The line-up will also be complemented by a terrific DJ line-up, which includes Bez (of Happy Mondays fame), Leeds legend Dave Beer (Back to Basics), Jay Wearden and Revolution Radio’s very own Dave Sweetmore.
To be in with a chance of winning one of the three sets of four 'Atmosphere' tickets, simply email your name and daytime contact number to us here at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for entries is Thursday, April 26 at 12 noon.
London-based, and formed in 2005, Scouting for Girls signed to Epic Records in 2007.
They released their self-titled debut album that September and it reached #1 on the UK albums chart in 2008.
To date it has sold over 1,000,000 copies in the UK.
A second album ‘Everybody Wants to Be on TV’ was released in April 2010 and peaked at #2 on the charts.
This was preceded by the single "This Ain't a Love Song", which went to #1 on the UK singles chart for two weeks.
To date, Scouting for Girls have sold over 2,000,000 records and have been nominated for four Brit Awards and one Ivor Novello Award.
Emerging from the Britpop movement of the mid-1990s, Liverpool-based Cast signed to Polydor Records and their debut album All Change (1995) became the highest selling debut album for the label.
Led by the uber-talented John Power, further commercial success continued with Cast’s albums Mother Nature Calls (1997) and Magic Hour (1999).
The band split, then re-formed in November 2010 and released their fifth album Troubled Times in November 2011.
Cast's sixth album Kicking Up the Dust, which was released on April 21, 2017.
Ginger Pigeon's Dave Hulmes said: “I’ve always wanted to put a festival on in Mossley. As Ginger Pigeon is growing bigger, we wanted to do something bigger.
“You can’t go much bigger than putting a festival on in your home town.
“It’s going to be a Greater Manchester festival. Forgive the pun, but we didn’t want to pigeon-hole ourselves.
"We always wanted to put on a festival for everyone, and that’s reflected in the line-up.
“There’s something for everyone at Atmosphere. We always wanted to open it up to a wide audience, and hopefully we’ve done that.”
'Atmosphere' tickets are now available via the link on the festival website: www.atmosfest.com.
