This time around, we have compiled a list of our favourite large open-air and indoor event listings announced to date in the UK.
With promoters hard at work in the background and our much-adored venues spending their lockdown time upgrading and planning, we are expecting a return full of creativity, vibes and happiness.
Do you remember the times where we would ‘hug strangers’ and brush against sweaty t-shirts, getting elbowed as arms got thrown in the air amidst a break full of heavily applied reverb ascending to the expectant drop of bass? Yes, another thing we miss and cannot wait to get back to.
Although the roadmap scheduled dates may change, we are positive the post-Covid world will continue to take shape.
Lamex Stadium, Stevenage
Sunday 30th May 2021
Even though still socially distanced, we could not ignore the magnitude of the new Stadium Series, which will see Hot Creations and Paradise boss, Jamie Jones, touching down at the stadium on Sunday 30th May with support from future stars Ben Sterling back-to-back with Mason Maynard, Jaden Thompson & Fleur Shore.
The covid secure event offers pods of six, so you must book with five friends, but do not worry, there are still deals on offer.
Carl Cox Live
Friday 23rd July 2021
The Godfather of dance music and undoubtedly one of the most influential artists of all time, Carl Cox, will return to Brighton this summer, performing an exceptional headline DJ set to celebrate the 21st Birthday of Brighton’s premier venue, Concorde 2.
The setting is Brighton beach, where Fatboy Slim performed his iconic DJ set almost 20 years ago, back in 2002. This event will be an equally momentous occasion off the back of one of the world’s most challenging periods in years.

Haus 22 8th Birthday
Albert Hall, Manchester
Friday 8th October 2021
The renowned Manchester techno brand celebrates their 8th birthday in style at the magnificent Albert Hall and previously a Wesleyan Chapel built just after the turn of the 20th century in 1908. When it comes to head-turning techno line ups it doesn’t get more emphatic than a triple threat in Berghain resident and prolific techno producer Ben Klock, Dubfire, who has enjoyed commercial success under his Deep Dish alias as well as notable releases on Crosstown and Drumcode, and last but not least Nastia with her spellbinding twilight techno style. You can be assured this event will be of holy proportion.
