One pair of tickets for Barcelona bash, and another five for London's A Taste Of Sonar event

As we at The Quietus sit in our sub-zero office this afternoon, we offer you a fantastic competition haul: the chance to go both A Taste Of Sónar, the preview showcase in London, and this year's Sónar festival itself in Barcelona.

Firstly, we have one pair of tickets for this year's event in Barcelona, which runs from June 16 - 18. Names confirmed for the festival include Underworld, Aphex Twin, The Human League, M.I.A, Janelle Monae, Nicolas Jaar, How To Dress Well, Actress and Dominique Young Unique. We also have five pairs of tickets up for grabs for this year's A Taste Of Sónar bash which takes place at the Roundhouse, London on March 19 and features the likes of Braiden, The Gaslamp Killer and loads more. To find out more about the event, or for ticket enquiries, click here.

Our main competition winner will get a pair of tickets to both events, while the four runners up will win a pair of tickets for the A Taste Of Sónar preview. If you want to be in with a chance of winning, just answer the following question:

After hearing their first single 'Being Boiled', which singer insultingly described The Human League as "trendy hippies" in a 1978 guest review for NME?

[A] Siouxsie Sioux

[B] John Lydon

[C] David Bowie
