Can you feel that? Yep, there's a definite buzz in the air at present, especially where live music is concerned. An unmistakable atmosphere of excitement you might say.

From last month's Independent Venue Week celebrations and the hype which surrounded the recent GRAMMY Awards to this weekend's annual BRIT Award ceremony, it's without question that music has taken front and centre stage in recent weeks. And all this before we've even considered commenting on the building anticipation for the coming UK festival season. 

The teams behind some of the nation's best open-air events, and one-off live music spectaculars, have been relentless through the early part of 2023, issuing mind-blowing lineup after mind-blowing lineup. The trouble is, we just can't decide which events to attend. There are too damn many to choose from!

See for yourself. Scroll further down the page to view some of the latest events, now on sale with Skiddle, and begin planning for the spring and summer months ahead.
