From April 1
Pick a spot
Skaters should ditch the half pipes and get creating. Red Bull DIY is a competition that challenges any skaters who think they have got what it takes to make the best skate spot. Participating skate shops supply all the tools, you post a picture of your finished spot on Instagram and the top three spots will be tested by skate pros such as Nick Remon and Jordan Thackeray, who appeared at last year’s event. The winners get new kit and bragging rights.
Aaron Bruno and his band Awolnation finish up their spring tour at Camden’s Electric Ballroom in London, showcasing songs from their keenly awaited new album, Run. The US outfit topped charts, broke records and had platinum-worthy sales in countries around the world with their debut effort, Megalithic Symphony. Did Bruno feel the pressure creating a follow-up?

For the 186th time, top rowers from Oxford and Cambridge universities will take to their boats for a head-to-head race down the Thames in front of thousands. Cambridge lead with 81 wins to Oxford’s 78, but on the day anything can happen: there was a dead heat in 1877, and on several occasions one or both of the team’s boats has sunk.
The UK’s top B-Boys are set to descend on Birmingham’s Q Club for Red Bull BC One 2015. They’ll go head-to-head and toe-to-toe in tough rounds in front of expert judges, battling it out to be named the country’s best. The winner will win a coveted place in the European competition later this year, representing the UK. Turn up and try out, or simply take a seat and watch the action unfold.
Club of the month
An archway next to a motorway might not sound like the most vibrant location, but this warehouse space in Glasgow hosts launch parties, club nights, mini festivals, gigs and exhibitions showing the work of artists who have colonised studios at the venue.
