Win tickets to Bloc Party!

Celebrated post-punk Brit band Bloc Party will grace their legion of loyal local fans at this year’s Future Music Festival (yes, please and thank you!) with their unmatched presence.

As a group celebrated for their unique sound and strand of performance, the Kele Okereke-fronted group has announced three sideshows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney for those unable to attend the festival (or, correspondingly, for punters who, come March, simply cannot hack another day under the unforgiving Australian sun).

Following a three-year break, a myriad of personal side projects and the release of their fourth feature length album last year, the band will be back on home shores just six months after a welcome return to 2012’s Splendour in the Grass lineup.

Deeply aware of the crippling side effects chronic FOMO is able to induce, TheVine, in cohesion with Future Music Festival and Bloc Party, have two double passes to the Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne sideshows to giveaway. All you have to do to win is fill out this form and tell us, in 25 words or less, what you would ask any member of Bloc Party, given the opportunity. And asking them on a date is not a valid answer – while we encourage you to be shameless, a little creativity will go a long way.  

Entries close Tuesday, January 30 at midday. 


If you're not keen to take chances, we have access to a special presale. BANQUET is the password. We're amazing, we know. Sydney:;
