Setting out to explore the archives of streaming and social media platforms in search of new bands, artists and DJs, more often than not, demand's a huge amount of time and patience. And in this modern and fast-paced world we all live in, who's really got the time? (And could we borrow some if you have any going spare?)
Don't get us wrong, there's nothing we love more than falling down a digital rabbit hole of music, seeking out that next big DJ or band or rapper that lives on repeat inside our ears for weeks and weeks on end. 'But there's got to be an easier way to find new music' we hear you say, and what's more, how to find out when and where they're playing live. Well, actually, there is...
Introducing, our brand new Skiddle playlists. Designed and carefully curated to help you discover new artists, as well as the ones you already love, performing live each month in some of your favourite clubbing destinations, independent music venues and at festivals throughout the festival season.
Split into two separate listings and updated at the start of every month, the 'Raves In...' playlist will shine a light on a wealth of DJ talent from around the world, whilst the 'Live In...' playlist deals with everything from rock bands, to indie outfits, hip hop collectives and more.
Including up to forty acts across both playlists, each of the artists featured will also have tickets for upcoming shows available to purchase on Skiddle! That's right, we do all the leg work so you don't have to. It's what we do.
So, stop spending so much time of your time looking for new music, raves and gigs, and instead spend it listening to our all-new 'Live This Month' playlists, specially catered to you, below.
