Last updated: 30th Apr 2021

What a week... Another huge wave of fantastic summer festivals, post-lockdown club nights, sweaty gigs, and outdoor food and beer festivals have been announced and added to Skiddle over the past seven days. And even still, the events just keep on coming.

There are quite literally too many events to choose from. Putting this list together was no easy task. And the range of experiences on offer, well, let's just say you won't be struggling to find something new. 

Fancy a rave on a beach courtesy of one of the worlds best DJs? We've got just the thing! How about a German beer festival with a Mancunian twist? A bit niche, but yes, we can accommodate. Ok, what about a trip back in time to the '90s, joining 5,000 other people in singing Peter Andre's 'Mysterious Girl'? Ermmm... yes, we have just the event for you. Who are we to judge. 

They say that variety is the spice of life. If that's the case, 2021 is looking pretty damn spicy with Skiddle.
