    The Prizes!

    We, Sofar Sounds Limited, are giving away roughly 20,000 tickets for events all around the world as part of the Give a Home 2017 event series. Events will take place across 250+ cities on Sept 20th 2017. You can enter for specific tickets to specific events in a specific city on that day.

    (Tickets have a nominal value of $0.01, are non-transferable, non-exchangeable, non-refundable, and not available to purchase separately. Tickets cannot be redeemed for cash, auctioned, bartered or resold by winners.)

    How do I enter?

    Provided that you are eligible (as described below), entering our Prize Draw is free.  You may be offered the opportunity to make a donation to Amnesty once we begin processing your entry. You’ll be sent an email to let you know if you’ve been entered into our Prize Draw.  The Prize Draw is set to take place on 10th of September 2017 where winners will be chosen. Winners are chosen at random from all eligible entries received. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

    If you are successfully entered into the draw, you’ll be sent a unique link you can share with your friends to let them know about the Prize Draw.  You’ll receive one (1) additional entry into the Prize Draw for each additional entry you generate through your link (up to a maximum of 10 entries). You should only invite people you know and who you think would want to receive the invitation – no spamming. PLEASE NOTE THAT WHENEVER YOU SHARE YOUR PERSONAL LINK WITH A FRIEND YOU SHOULD INCLUDE A STATEMENT THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE AN ADDITIONAL ENTRY IF YOUR FRIEND ENTERS THE SWEEPSTAKES VIA YOUR LINK. Failure to disclose this information is a violation of these rules. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means or by any means which subvert the entry process are void.

    Any reference to “you” is to you as a Participant in or winner of (as the case may be) a Competition.

    1. This Agreement shall be binding on you when you enter, participate in or win any Competition or accept any Prize.
    2. In the event that there is any conflict between these Competition Terms and any specific Competition Rules relating to a particular Competition then the specific Competition Rules will prevail.

    Any Participant using a mobile device or other means of communication which is not paid for by that Participant should ask for the permission of the person who owns it and/or the person who pays the bills before entering the Competition.


    Competition winners will be notified within the period stipulated in the Competition Rules, and Prizes must be claimed as set out in the notification relating to the Prize.  Any claim for a Prize made outside the time or manner specified for the relevant Competition will be invalid.

    To eliminate non-genuine, deceitful or fraudulent claims, we reserve the right to:

    Prizes offered cannot be exchanged for cash or other alternatives.

    You must let us know if any of your personal data is incorrect or becomes out of date.


    You shall be disqualified from entering the Competition, and, if you have won a Prize we may withdraw the same, or recover it from you if it has already been given, if:

    1. you breach any of the terms of this Agreement or any other terms relating to the Competition;

    We or the Prize Provider shall be entitled, in our reasonable discretion, to cancel, delay and/or recommence a Competition with immediate effect by online announcement without any liability.

    If a Competition is cancelled after a valid claim has been made, we or the Prize Provider, will use reasonable endeavours to offer an alternative Prize. If such alternative Prize is offered but not accepted by you, you shall have no claim against us or the Prize Provider in respect of the cancellation or delay of the Competition or Prize or for any expense or damage whatsoever incurred as a result.


    We and the Prize Provider exclude all liability whatever for any costs, expenses, damages, liability, injury or disappointment suffered by you arising out of or in any way connected with the Competition or Prizes, in contract and in tort (including negligence) and otherwise, in each case provided that nothing in these Competition Terms excludes any liability for death or personal injury arising out of our or the Prize Provider’s negligence or the negligence of our employees, fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation by us or the Prize Provider or our employees; or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by law. We, and the Prize Provider, exclude all liability whatsoever for any loss of profit, business, contracts, revenues or anticipated savings or for special, direct, indirect or consequential loss of any nature howsoever arising.

    We and the Prize Provider shall have no liability in the event of telephone, mobile connectivity or online entries delayed or not received by us or the Prize Provider as a result of network incompatibility, technical faults or for any other reason. Nor shall we or the Prize Provider have any liability for Prizes which are lost, delayed or damaged in the post or otherwise not validly received by you, nor for any mistakes in the source material utilised by us or the Prize Provider question compilers.

    Our decision or that of the Prize Provider’s judges is final and conclusive in all circumstances and no correspondence will be entered into. The judges for each individual competition will be specified in the terms of the conditions for that specific campaign/competition. Similarly the method of announcement of any winners will be specified in the terms of entry for that competition.


    This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and you and we submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England.

    This Agreement represents the entire agreement between you and us relating to the Competition or the Prize and supersede all prior representations, agreements, negotiations or understandings (whether oral or in writing).

    Failure to enforce any term does not constitute a waiver of that term.

    If any part of this Agreement of use is found to be unenforceable, it will be amended to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable and the remainder of the provisions will remain in full force and effect.

    This Agreement is not intended to nor shall create any rights, entitlements, claims or benefits enforceable by any person that is not a party to them.  Accordingly no person shall derive any benefit or have any right, entitlement or claim in relation to this Agreement by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999
