This competition is now closed.
As we know, this year’s edition of the Hyundai Mercury Prize is set to look a little different, but to mark the occasion - and look ahead to the future all at the same time - we’re teaming up with Hyundai to offer one of our lucky readers a very special VIP package, and the chance to head to the 2021 Hyundai Mercury Prize awards show.
Fancy heading to next year’s ceremony to celebrate the best of British music, and see which of the shortlisted artists picks up the coveted prize? One lucky reader and a friend will be able to head to event, where they’ll be given a pair of tickets to watch the show that’s set to include performances from a selection of the shortlisted artists. You’ll also be able to stay the night in the capital at a 4* London hotel and given £250 spending money for your trip, as well as being transferred to and from the event, too.
And that’s not all: as we’re unable to send you to celebrate this year’s edition of the Hyundai Mercury Prize, we’ll also include a copy of each of this year’s shortlisted albums on vinyl, giving you the chance to properly dig into all of those incredible records. The VIP prize package is available exclusively to DIY readers courtesy of Hyundai.
