Win VIP tickets to homelands
The List has teamed up with Ericsson to provide two exciting prizes for our lucky readers.
We have one pair of VIP tickets to the event at The Royal Highland Centre, allowing you and your favourite partner in crime to enjoy eighteen hours of banging sets from the best DJs.
Also, we have a VIP trip for two to London where a very lucky reader will visit Home, the brand new superclub run by Darren Hughs, the bloke behind homelands. We have two return flights to London (leave Thu, return Sun, September dates to be confirmed), a hotel room for three nights and a pair of VIP tickets to the spanking new club.
Without question, homelands boasts one of the most impressive line-ups of DJs and producers in many a year. The entire event is sponsored by Ericsson, makers of some of the coolest mobile phones since they became an essential item way back when. They have also created their own technology space with the Ericsson Zone, a communications centre at homelands allowing the clubbers on site to free UK phone calls, e-mail and Internet access, as well as massages and free recharging of "mu your Ericsson batteries.
