The weather’s (gradually) beginning to turn and music’s most sizzling entertainers are prying us out of shelter into the lovingly-loud embrace of concert halls and stadiums across the globe. But with the sheer breadth of live and direct experiences currently on the calendar, seemed only right we’d illuminate just how gratifying these spring and summer seasons could be.
Titans of r&b, hip-hop and rock, new and old, are currently or shortly gracing the road, which means in the weeks and months ahead you can come under the spell of Radiohead‘s howls, two-step til dawn with Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, catch infinite feels from Kehlani, Kelela, Little Simz and Sampha, scratch trap itches you didn’t even know you had with the gamut of impossibly-lit ATLiens (Guwop’s first-ever headlining tour is easy best-life material.) Combos and configurations galore. Jump over to the next page to peep the powerhouse bills of 2017 and how to cop those most coveted stubs. Godspeed, and happy (slightly) warmer 2017.
