ironik_festval_for_heroes***UPDATE*** Er, the My Chemical Toilet kiss of festideath has struck again folks – Festival For Heroes has been “postponed” due to… well, lack of ticket sales.

You can find a pithy yet optimistic statement claiming it will return next year here.

IT IS FOR A VERY GOOD CAUSE. Let’s just say that now. Festival For Heroes is aiming to raise over a million squids for The Royal British Legion, which is the charity that provides support to military service personnel and sells poppies for Remembrance Day.

Festival For Heroes kicks off Armed Forces Week at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire on Saturday 20th June, and what a heroic bill it offers. Elton John-sampling Ironik (pronounced ey-ronik; above) is probably the highest profile name as far as young ‘uns are concerned, but their Mums and Dads Nans and Grandads will be able to enjoy Lulu, while the moody adolescent sibling in the family will be free to nostagify over the heady days of 2006 as The Automatic blast out all of their hit “Monster” (and possibly some other songs).

Also available for your delectation on the day: “Pretty Green Eyes”-possessors Ultrabeat, pop-dance chart-botherers Booty Luv and never-seems-to-hang-around-the-charts-long-but-never-really-goes-away star Gabrielle. And on top of that, you have some people called “Escala”, “Blake” and “All Angels”, all of whom I imagine I would probably know if I paid more attention to ITV’s Saturday Night Talent Factor.

I believe the term is “something for everyone”, and if you’d like to experience this something, My Chemical Toilet has a pair of tickets just begging to be pocketed and presented at the gates of Blenheim Palace. Click over for deets on how to win.

Tickets for Festival For Heroes are availabubble at SeeTickets.com, but this very web portal if offering a pair to YOU for FREE.

For your chance to win, do the followings:

1. Answer this question: The video for “DJ” Ironik’s “Stay With Me” sees him rhyming to his girlfriend, but is the lady in question conscious or unconscious for the majority of the clip?

2. Send your answer via electronic mail to stuart[at]mychemicaltoilet.com with the subject line “I CAN BE YOUR HERO BABY”. Be sure to include a postal address where we can send the tickets should you vanquish your competition rivals.

You have until the stroke of midnight on Sunday 24th May to enter. One entry per person, UK entrants only, sozzyploppers.

Have your say!
