When I saw The Darkness 4 years ago at Gods of Metal in Milan, I experienced a life-changing moment. Justin Hawkins’ energy and connection with the crowd was like nothing I’d ever seen before. And I’ve seen a looooot of bands in my lifetime.
So I can tell you this much: The Darkness are the real fucking deal.
That’s why we’re beyond excited for The Darknesstival — yes an actual fan convention for all of us crazy rockheads out there. Yes, you’ve heard of fan conventions before, but let’s be honest — you mostly see them in TV show and film fandoms, right?
It’s kinda rare to see bands actually caring about their fans so much these days. Breathing an event like that to life is not an easy task. AT ALL. So extra points (+ love) to The Darkness for getting their priorities straight (aka their fanbase).
Okay, not let’s get to the GOOD STUFF. And by good stuff, we mean FREE STUFF FOR Y’ALL.
We are giving away THREE PAIRS of tickets for The Darkness live show.
The tickets don’t include access to the convention itself. They are tickets for the actual concert on December 18th, at The Indigo (O2). It’s pretty straight-forward to enter the giveaway below:
The competition ends this Friday (16/12) at 13:00 GMT.
p.s. Shoutout to the band’s management for the tickets.
