Music Beats Mines auction 2012

Auction Update!

We raised £1600 from this year's Music Beats Mines Auction! Thank you to all the bidders and congratulations to all the winners! This is a fantastic amount to raise and will help MAG save more lives and return land to its agricultural and economic potential, thereby helping communities out of extreme poverty.

Our star item this year was an Olympic Closing Ceremony programme, which was generously donated by Elbow. Signed by some of the performers who gave the greatest show on earth a fitting send off, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece of Olympic and musical history. 

Guy Garvey said, "MAG are great because through their work they prevent people from becoming horrifying statistics. It's impossible to quantify how important MAG are. These people are the best that people can be and you can be one of them without even leaving your armchair by bidding on their online auction" he said. 

Another one of a kind item up for grabs was a signed poster perfect for fans of house music everywhere. Legendary London house label, Defected Records, kindly donated a canvas poster of their 2011 summer season at Pacha, Ibiza, signed by a host of DJs who played there including Bob Sinclar, The Shapeshifters, Junior Jack and many more.  

Defected said, "In recognition of MAG's fantastic hard work and dedication, we donated a limited edition signed canvas line-up poster from our sell-out 2011 summer season at Pacha in Ibiza."

There were a host of other signed items from the likes of Tulisa, Emeli Sandé, Sigur Rós, The Temper Trap, Nanci Griffith, Warpaint, DJ Sneak and Barem. 

For the more visually inclined, there were some striking music gig posters up for grabs, as well as a photo of Tim Burgess signed by the photographer Mark Campbell, and a 1993 artwork proof of The Verve's Storm In Heaven signed by famous rock photographer Michael Spencer Jones.

All money raised from the auction helps MAG continue its life-saving, life-changing work, clearing landmines and destroying weapons whilst allowing people to win unique items of musical memorabilia so please keep an eye out for details of the 2013 auction later this year.
