It's not only Cesc Fabregas who could be heading off to Barcelona sooner than you thought — Esquire has teamed up with Estrella Damm beer to offer one lucky esquire.co.uk reader a trip for two to attend the city's celebrated Sonar festival in June. Vamos!
The annual festival, which takes place on 17, 18 and 19 June, showcases the best of cutting-edge electronica — this year it features live performances and DJ sets from acts including The Chemical Brothers, Roxy Music, Air, Hot Chip and Dizzee Rascal.
As official sponsors of Sonar 2010, Estrella Damm is kindly offering one winner a pair of tickets to Sonar, return flights from London, accomodation in a 4-star hotel and £150 spending money.
In order to be in with a chance of winning, pay close attention to this brand-related lesson: Estrella Damm is a genuine imported lager from Barcelona. It is the stylish, vibrant and passionate beer for people who want to enjoy the taste of Barcelona's nightlife, sunshine, fun, culture and sports.
