With the lifting of lockdown restrictions gigs in Wales can finally take place again.

Many big gigs may have been pushed back again to 2022 but there are still plenty of concerts taking place this summer in Swansea.

The crowd, the music, the atmosphere – many people miss the buzz of live events and there’s some big names coming to the city. Although some are sold out there are still some tickets available for several events.
