New On Skiddle: Drumcode, Carl Cox, DJ Yoda, The Sherlocks & more

Last updated: 18th Jun 2021

It's been yet another hard week for the music industry. The announcement from Downing Street on Monday evening left event organisers around the UK in a state of despair, as the continuation of the current COVID restrictions means gigs, raves, festivals and plenty of other cultural occasions have to be postponed. A somewhat irresponsible move from the government that will surely spell the end for many of Britain's best party-throwing collectives. 

We're urging all our loyal customers who've recently bought tickets for shows scheduled to take place in the coming weeks to hold onto them if at all possible, in support of the industry and the scores of teams who bring together some of our favourite live events.

It's not all doom and gloom, however... There's still a plethora of new events popping up on a daily basis, set to run from our new date of freedom, Monday 19th July, throughout the summer, and into the autumn and beyond.

So, if you haven't already started thinking about what events you'll be present at when we reach Step Four in the Roadmap out of Lockdown, now is most definitely the time!

Browse some of the excellent events added to Skiddle this week, and treat yourself to tickets for a few restriction-free parties in 2021.
