New this week: HAIM, Download Festival + more

Here's our weekly round-up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.

Los Angeles trio HAIM will be marking the recent release of their third studio album Women In Music Pt. III with headline dates in June 2021, including a performance at London’s The O2.

Comprising sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim, the band reached No.1 on the UK album chart with the record upon release in June 2020.

Expanding on their garage-rock infused pop, and touching on a multitude of styles including retrospective RnB, distorted rock and outward pop, Women In Music Pt. III includes the singles Summer Girl, The Steps and the anthemic Now I’m In It.

HAIM will be arriving in the UK for headline dates in June 2021, kicking off their arena run with two nights at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse. The tour will then see them take to London, Nottingham, Glasgow and Cardiff, before heading to Irish capital Dublin.

Donington Park, the UK’s spiritual home of rock, will once again play host to Download Festival in 2021, with the festival revealing KISS, Biffy Clyro and System Of A Down as their trio of main stage headliners.

Some of the most successful bands in rock music history, they’ll be joined by the likes of A Day To Remember, Deftones and KoRn on the main stage.

Download Festival will make its triumphant return to the Midlands following its 2020 postponement, running from Friday 4 – Sunday 6 June 2021.

News: Line-up revealed for Download Festival 2021


Camp Bestival organisers have confirmed that the family focussed event will return to Lulworth Castle from 29 July – 1 August 2021.

With the line-up expected to drop in the near future, tickets for the event are available now – including various instalment plan options.

British DJ and production duo CamelPhat have announced headline dates, touring across the UK throughout March and April 2021.

Comprising Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala, the pair have been releasing music together under various monikers since the early ’00s. In 2017 they dropped the huge single Cola featuring Elderbrook, breaking into the top three on the UK dance chart and rapidly propelling their career forward.

Oxford four-piece Glass Animals have also announced their triumphant return following the rehabilitation of drummer Joe Seaward, who was involved in a serious traffic accident in July 2018.

Announcing their third studio album Dreamland earlier this summer, they have now revealed a string of headline dates for May 2021, including a show at London’s imposing Alexandra Palace.

The band will drop Dreamland on 7 August 2020.

Elsewhere, Manchester dark-pop duo Hurts, British singer and songwriter Marc Almond and the fourth outing of RuPaul’s Drag Race Werq The World tour have all announced new shows.
