Gigs, gigs, gigs. Gigs galore. Gigs aplenty. October, you temptress! You really are spoiling us...

There's quite a lot to look forward to this month, especially if you're a fan of guitar music (Just on the off chance we didn't get that across). Event listings at once-again bustling music venues across the British Isles are crammed full of quality live acts, set to perform and provide all of you keen-as-mustard musos with some cracking live entertainment. Many of whom can also be found within our Live in October playlist. Lovely jubbly. 

Promoting a broad and diverse selection of sounds and styles, there's something to appease the needs of all in this moths playlist, including a smattering of both emerging and established names taking to the stage over the next few weeks.

Sctottish folk star KT Tunstall, American alt-rap duo, Marlowe, and post-punk contemporaries Snapped Ankles and TV Priest all make an appearance, alongside a handful of other highly regarded names performing throughout the spookiest period of the year.

Tickets to events to see each of the acts featured in the playlist are now on sale and can be found further down the page.
