If you ask someone to describe their perfect summer’s day, it's likely to involve friends, ice-cold beverages, and music. Though we’ve bid goodbye to the likes of Glastonbury and Field Day for another year, there are still so many more shows out there to tantalize your eardrums and eyeballs alike. Lucky for you (and us), there's no time or place better than summer in the U.K. for checking out live concerts. The sheer variety of acts alone is enough to make you nix the rest of your plans.
So, open up your calendar and make some room for the artists and festivals that you can’t afford to miss. From the return of an iconic songstress to the coolest new fest in the East End, there's a gig out there with your name on it. You (and your Spotify account) can thank us later.
