Two weeks before the official start of San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011, we heard some news that will make the Interpol fans happy. San Miguel is offering the possibility of winning a double invitation to the intimate concert the New Yorkers will play at Apolo in Barcelona on 25th May. Only 800 lucky fans will be able to be there, a luxury if you take into account that their last visit to the city took them to the Sant Jordi Club, a much bigger venue. Obviously, the event, the performance at the Fòrum on the 26th for the festival will happen as well.
There are two ways of getting one of the 400 pairs of invitations to the evening, where local group The Lions Constellation will be warming up for the band. One is becoming a fan of San Miguel on Facebook. For five days, several questions about Interpol will be posted on that page. The first forty people to give the correct answer each day will get a ticket for two. The other half will be given two those who can prove they attended at least two gig of the San Miguel Primavera Sound als Bars. At every venue, the attendees can ask for a stamped card, which they will have to show at the entrance of Apolo on 25th May. The first 200 will get a free entry ticket for 2. The winner (not his or her guest) will also have to show a ticket to the San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011 festival, whether it be an actual ticket or the receipt of the purchase. To the right we leave you with the agenda of the San Miguel Primavera Sound als Bars season. The season starts tomorrow.
