It's here, people - the only guide to the summer that you'll need if you're an Irish music fan.

With more choice of gigs and festivals than ever before, it's tough to keep track of what's happening when, who's been added to which line-up and who the best bands to catch are - which is where our Summer Music Festivals site comes in.

Over the past few years, we've kept you updated on the biggest and best events of the summer, and our 2017 site has just been launced, with regularly updated news, festures and interviews from Electric Picnic, Longitude, Slane, Sea Sessions, Castlepalooza, BARE in the Woods, Indiependence, Punchestown Music Festival, Live at the Marquee, Trinity College Summer Series and the gigs at Malahide Castle and Royal Hospital, Kilmainham over the next few months.

And EVEN BETTER - we're running our annual 'Golden Ticket' competition, which will give one reader (and a friend) the opportunity to win all of the below:

2 weekend tickets to Electric Picnic 2017
2 tickets to Longitude (day of your choice)
2 weekend Mellow Campsite tickets with Surfer Bar Upgrades to Sea Sessions
2 weekend tickets to BARE in the Woods Festival
2 weekend tickets to Castlepalooza Music Festival
2 tickets to Indiependence Music & Arts Festival
2 tickets to Live at the Marquee (Elbow + Bryan Adams )

2 tickets to all of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham Music Concerts (Walking On Cars + Green Day + The Coronas)

This year, you'll be able to enter via Twitter and Facebook (more details via this link) - so get busy on your social networks and don't forget to bookmark the Summer Music Festivals site to stay in the loop.

Good luck!
