Get Out - your weekly live music update, featuring Pale Waves, The National, Whenyoung and more.

We know what it's like - we're all busy people. But when it gets towards the end of the week, we want to start thinking what we're going to do with our down time.

Live music doesn't always hang around for the last minute roller-uppers, though. We have to plan in advance. That's why we've committed to bringing you a weekly round-up of all the week's tour, festival and live announcements, so you can be ready for that traditional Friday morning ticket scramble. Published at 4pm every Thursday, you know exactly where to come to make sure you've not missed anything important.

This week we've had loads of new tour and festival announcements, including - but not limited to - Pale Waves, Whenyoung, The National and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. There's also been new festival news for Citadel, The Great Escape, Standon Calling, Barn On The Farm and more.

If any of that takes your fancy, you can find the full dates and details in the stories below. Jump on in!
