The Barclaycard Mercury Prize Albums of the Year Live series continues on Wednesday 24 October with special performances from The Maccabees, Michael Kiwanuka and Alt-J.
The shortlisted artists will be playing the event at LSO St Luke’s in London to help raise money for War Child, supporting the charity’s work assisting children affected by conflict around the world.
Tickets are available to fans through competitions and a special ballot system developed in association with Barclaycard Unwind and partner The Ticket Factory. Entry to the gig will be free, although a donation of £10 to War Child is required to secure each pair of tickets.
Barclaycard will be matching all donations made using a Barclaycard. Fans can apply for tickets at: https://www.theticketfactory.com
Those not able to attend the gig will still be able to catch tracks and interviews on television as part of Channel 4’s coverage of this year’s prize. Each artist will be the subject of a dedicated programme broadcast on Wednesday 31 October ahead of the Barclaycard Mercury Prize Awards Show on Thursday 1 November.
