You'll cry, you'll go into existential crisis, you'll dance. Our recommendations for the weekend ahead.

If there was ever a reason to leave behind the UK festivals and head to the sunny land of Spain for a few days; Bilbao BBK Live 2016 is the one. 

A day like today is a welcome reminder that Summer is on the way, and this Summer seems to be as saturated with festivals as festival-goers will be by the inevitable downpours.
