Joint Headliners for Next Mercury Prize Gig Announced. Barclaycard's Mercury Prize gig series continues on Wednesday October 24 with joint headline slots from the Maccabees, Michael Kiwanuka and Alt-J. These Mercury Prize shortlisted artists will play at LSO St Luke’s in London to help raise money for War Child, supporting the fantastic work they do assisting children affected by conflict around the world.

Tickets are available via competitions and a special ballot system which is open for 48 hours from 10am on Monday October 15. Entry is free although a ten pound donation to War Child will be needed to secure a pair of tickets. Fans can apply for tickets here.

Coverage of tracks and interviews will be broadcast on Channel 4 and each artist will have their own dedicated programs broadcast on October 31. The official awards show takes place on Thursday November 1.
