Xfm's Best NonFest

Story by Jack Foley

GLOBAL Radio’s Xfm has launched BestNonFest, an exciting new competition offering one lucky winner the ultimate non-festival package – a collection of gig tickets to see some of the greatest bands around.

Xfm will be inviting music fans to join a virtual queue – on Facebook or – whereby each position is constantly determined by a series of daily Q&As.

Questions answered correctly enable entrants to move forward whilst incorrect answers take them to the back of the queue.

The first person in the queue at 4pm on Friday, October 1, 2010, wins the grand prize of gig tickets to see an incredible line-up of BestNonFest bands.
