It's a pleasant quirk that come summer, the music industry and all its composite parts decamp to the farthest corners of the British countryside. Festival season is upon is, and it's time to pick out the best of the bunch.
One of the most eagerly anticipated festivals on this year's circuit is The Big Chill. Taking root in the Herefordshire countryside for the first weekend in August, this year's line-up includes the likes of Massive Attack, M.I.A, Lily Allen, Kelis and Thom Yorke.
Should the shirtless masses prove too much, whisky brand Monkey Shoulder will be erecting a specially designed "Tree House" retreat overlooking the festival, for the second year in a row. Crafted from sustainable timber and reclaimed whisky barrels, the structure will feature a range of pods, dj booths, outdoor seating and lounge areas - where festival-goers can sit back and chill big with a Monkey Shoulder cocktail.
We're offering one pair of tickets plus a "VIP experience" for two at the Monkey Shoulder Tree House. To be in with a chance of winning, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, being sure to include all your contact details, alongside Big Chill in the subject box.
