Save the date!
Lomond Auditorium, Glasgow
From bike feats on impossible-looking ridges with trials rider Danny MacAskill, to slacklining at faint-inducing heights with record-breaker Faith Dickey, the Banff Mountain Film Festival – currently touring the UK and Ireland – presents adrenalin-fuelled films that defy belief. Don’t miss Sun Dog, the story of Conga, a two-year-old dog who skis as well as his pro owner.
Escape to the sea
Various venues, Brighton
Combine a curated selection of the best new artists with a trip to the seaside and you’ve got one of the year’s top urban festivals. The Great Escape takes part over three beat-heavy days, during which any venue in the city worth its salt will be packed with talented up-and-comers. Grab a wristband, a beer and possibly a doughnut from the pier, and watch artists such as rap ingenue Little Simz and AK/DK with their improvised synth-and-double-drum creations.
Great British bike-off
Donington Park Racing Circuit, Leicestershire
The Superbike World Championship returns for the British round of the 2015 season, with 25 of the planet’s top riders revving up to race at Donington Park. This year’s line-up features six competitors from these shores, including Northern Irishman Jonathan Rea. The 28-year-old, who took third place overall in last year’s championship, will be hoping for a victory on UK asphalt to push him to greater success this time round. But, as all fans of the sport know, anything can happen in bike racing. Whatever the outcome, you can guarantee a big turnout for this knee-grinding, high-octane spectacle.
Feel the love
Eastville Park, Bristol
Back for its fourth year, the Love Saves the Day festival is bursting with good vibes. Jessie Ware (right) is primed to set hearts alight on Saturday, alongside long-time collaborator Julio Bashmore. Acts including Azealia Banks, Grandmaster Flash and Floating Points will keep the passion burning on Sunday.
Club of the month
LWE Tobacco Dock, London
London Warehouse Events, or LWE, has been one of the city’s most exciting party series over the past five years. What sets LWE apart is not only its consistently top-notch choice of unique warehouse venues and DJs – from minimal-house honcho Richie Hawtin to local newcomers such as Krystal Klear – but its refreshing approach to party hours. LWE events start at midday and finish before midnight at the Tobacco Dock industrial site in Wapping. It’s convenient in terms of public transport and, the promoters explain, “daytime raving seems to bring an altogether friendlier atmosphere”.
