Liam Gallagher, KASABIAN – Knebworth – 04/06/2022. Set on Oasis’ old stomping ground, the younger Gallagher brother seeks out a reunion for the ages.
Elbow – Hampton Court Palace, London – 10-11/06/2022. Widely hailed as quintessential to an orchestral sound of summer, Elbow return with their fruit baskets and flannel shirts for a UK tour in June.
A free open-air concert hosted by the London Symphony Orchestra at the heart of London at Trafalgar Square in June, the 32-piece orchestra is set to play collections from the likes of Gershwin and Ernest. Now it doesn’t get more British than that.
A pivotal outdoor event for this summer, The Big Top is set to be an unforgettable experience taking place in Edinburgh across the stretch of June. Featuring iconic artists with Scotlands-own Biffy Clyro and Londoners Madness. Meanwhile, further down south, the return of Download Festival throws us into the summer heat (or mud) at full throttle in Donington Park.
Venturing further south, both Standon Calling Festival and The Cambridge Club Festival boast highly -sought line-ups for both Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire regions, while Lytham Festival opts for a coastal regime of strawberry-and-cream delights swaying into July this year.
Likely staples of world-renowned Glastonbury Festival and Scottish-counterpart TRNSMT Festival finally return this year, embezzling the esteemed wealth and riches of the UK live music industry. It’s difficult not to mention Slam Dunk this year. Now bigger than ever, an eclectic maelstrom with the best in punk and rock returning to the Leeds and Hatfield cityscapes. Good luck getting tickets for either of these, mind.
