It's easy to focus on the Oh God Noes of returning to reality after holiday bliss, but let's not forget the Thank Fuck of it all: GIGS! While I'm sweating away in the UTR office, all my favourite bands are back in their offices too, by which I mean practice spaces, music venues, and in front of a laptop in their bedroom, readying themselves for the rest of this stinking hot summer. If your calendar app of choice doesn't already resemble a crochet blanket of wool off-cuts, now's the time to load in a few months worth of upcoming shows — starting with our handy selection of festivals, tours and gigs to look forward to in the near future. From DARTZ taking it upon themselves to 'Save Summer', to The Others Way Festival finally actually happening, and Hollie Smith melting all our brains with her stellar pipes, it's a wonder any of us are managing to get any sleep under this level of excitement...
