Your unique chance to party hard with the stars...

To celebrate this year’s NME CARLING AWARDS, NME.COM would like to invite some of our readers along to join us for the party.

This is actually the first time NME and NME.COM readers will have a chance to attend our annual awards bash – which, as the photos prove, is always the biggest and best party of the year. Last year, Kylie Minogue hung out with Bono, the Gallagher brothers were on top form, and Faye from Steps got friendly with Alfie.

The lucky winners of tickets for this year’s awards will be in similarly esteemed company. Some of the stars who have already RSVP’d include Strokes, Charlatans, Kylie Minogue Slipknot, Radiohead, Muse, Ash, Dandy Warhols and Adam Ant. And all of them are expected to party hard.

The awards take place at The Arches in London’s Shoreditch on the afternoon of Monday, February 25. The winning readers will get to watch the awards ceremony and then carry on partying into the early hours at the aftershow bash.

For your chance to win a ticket to the party of the year, answer the question below – and remember it. Then make sure you get next week NME (February 23) and look to NME.COM next week, which will feature the second question and the all-important exclusive phoneline you’ll need to enter (when you’ll need the answer to the first question). Then all you’ve got to do is choose your outfit.
