According to the astronomical definition of the seasons, measured by the earth's orbit around the sun, we are now officially three days into the autumn. Farewell, summer of 2021. You gave us back our freedom, welcomed back live music and provided us with some stereotypical British weather. We'll never forget you.
Now begins the long countdown to Christmas... But before we start getting carried away with thoughts of overweight bearded fellas in red suits riding reindeer through the sky, we should remember that there's still a multitude of fantastic festivals, epic warehouse raves and rowdy gigs to experience over the next four months.
Below, you'll find just ten of those said events - all brand new on Skiddle - with tickets now on sale! Be warned - Tickets for nearly all of those listed are flying out! Be sure to get your hands on one or two before it's too late...
