Crosstown Concerts has announced a prize draw to raise money for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. Artists who have donated prizes include Ed Sheeran, Elbow, The Chemical Brothers, Jack Savoretti, George Ezra and Pixies.

Each prize is a special experience, with Sheeran offering three winners the chance to attend an Ipswich Town football club home game with him in his private hospitality box.

Elbow, Savoretti, Snow Patrol, Razorlight and Pixies are all offering the chance to meet them backstage at a show. Frank Turner will also allow his winner into the soundcheck at a show of their choice. Meanwhile, Ladysmith Black Mambazo will invite a fan to rehearse with them during the day of a show and then join them on stage to sing one song that evening.

“We wanted to make as much of a difference as possible, beyond giving money”, says Crosstown Concerts co-founder Conal Dodds. “We contacted artists we know and got a great response and will be adding more unique experiences in the coming weeks”.

Entry into each artist’s prize draw will cost £5, and this first round of draws will close on 29 Mar. Click here to enter.
