We are now into April in what seems like a year where we're going full steam ahead. Luckily, this is looking like one of 2023's busiest months, so it should leave you with plenty of lasting memories. In this month's recommendations, we have an amazing festival down in Liverpool, Sound City.

A place for you to discover your next favourite indie/pop artist, it has often been a stepping stone toward much bigger things for small artists. Aside from that, we have a fantastic range of club nights and raves for you to choose from that will have you making the most of every weekend. 

Now that the weather is a bit brighter, it is the perfect time to start heading to craft beer festivals too to make the most of it. Fin all of this and more in the list below.
