Summer's here and it's festival season. It may be quieter on the local music front but there's still plenty of gigs including many provided by bands criss-crossing the country and the skies to play in those green fields.

Pick of the bunch this month in Manchester is the Cloud Sounds and Hear Here gig at The Castle Hotel: H Hawkline, Yoke (Cate Le Bon + Meilyr from Race Horses) and The Maladies of Bellafontaine. All for just £5 advance.

As ever a mixtape [47 mins / 54 MB] of bands playing Manchester this August to help inform your gig-going decision-making - link in the post below this one.
