It's a breath of fresh air to concert goers — a galaxy of stars shining brightly in the great outdoors this summer.

As CD sales continue to slide, it has become increasingly important for the music world’s big names to get out on the road more often and play live — much to the delight of gig lovers.

So the summertime blues years of the past have been banished as a multitude of festivals and major open air shows both north and south now vie for your attention and cash.

Only in tomorrows Sunday Life we give you a  selection of the most sizzling star events this summer.
