Enter to Win a trip for to Ireland and, while you’re there, we’ll send you to Ireland’s hottest music festival Witnness Festival 2002. That’s right – one lucky winner will score the trip of a lifetime in our coolest giveaway contest ever.

Prepare for an exciting five-day, four-night escape to Dublin, Europe’s party capital. We’ll fly you there via Aer Lingus, and you’ll have some time to soak up the sights and sounds of the city before spending the weekend at the super-hot Witnness Festival 2002. The action takes place at the Fairyhouse Racecourse just outside Dublin in County Meath. We’ve snagged two weekend passes for the event, which takes place July 13-14.

Headlining the Witnness Festival this year are The Prodigy, The Foo Fighters, No Doubt and those bad boys of Brit Rock (whose family is rooted firmly in the soil of County Mayo), Oasis.

The line-up:

Saturday, July 13

The Prodigy, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Chemical Brothers, Air, The Hives, Ian Brown, Sonic Youth, Mercury Rev, The Beta Band, The Bluetones, The Devlins, Kosheen, Electric Soft Parade, Beverley Knight, Melaton, Cornelius and many more to be announced
