Tickets and line-up announced for the hottest XFM Winter Wonderland 2011 - on sale now!

Posted: 31st October 2011

As reported last week, the line-up was due to be announced today for the latest XFM Winter Wonderland instalment - and the organizers certainly haven't let us down!

The first show on 5th December takes place at Manchester's O2 Apollo and features headliners Chase and Status, who have recently sold out their upcoming show at Alexandra Palace and Ed Sheeran who has a serious habit of selling out every ruddy show he announces. Dubsteppers Nero, upcoming rapper Maverick Sabre, plus The Big Pink and Fenech-Soler precede DJ sets from Eddy Temple Morris and Mary Anne Hobbs. Ticket prices start at £25 and the show starts at 6.30pm.

The second and final show (so far - you never know) takes place on 14th December at the Brixton O2 Academy and has an air of mystery about it. Headliners are Kaiser Chiefs with The Horrors, The Maccabees and Tribes in support, plus promising upcoming outfit, We Are Augustines kicking things off. But there are also some special guests yet to be unveiled. Woop! As soon as we know who it is, we'll let you know. Meanwhile ticket prices for London are also £25 with the show starting a little earlier at 6pm.

Both shows are expected to sell out pretty quickly (they went on sale this morning).
