As well as the festivals there's a number of large outdoor tours and shows taking place across the summer. Richard Ashcroft, Bon Jovi, Embrace, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stones and The Who will all be playing a field, forest or football ground near you.

If you're planning your summer movements and are either an England football fan or just a football fan in general, here's the key dates from the World Cup so you can attempt to keep in touch from the comfort of your field.

The tournament will begin on Friday 9th with Germany Vs Costa Rica. England's group matches are on Saturday 10th (Download and Isle of Wight weekend) at 2 PM. The other group matches are on Thursday 15th and Tuesday 20th and so don't clash with festivals.

The knock out stages begin on the weekend of 24-25th, and England will be playing on either of those days assuming they get that far, any matches will clash with Wireless in both London and Leeds. The quarterfinals are on June 30th and July 1st which is Roskilde weekend. The semi finals are during the middle of the following week.

The world cup final will be on Sunday 9th July at 7 PM, so if you plan to go to either Oxegen or T in the Park then that's when any potential split loyalty between football and music will have to be worked out.

We now have a clearer idea of when some of the major album releases of 2006 are due, for the next big thing March is the month when they travel to the USA to impress.

The great and good of the music industry head for either the South by South West festival if they're interest is bands and those looking to find the massive summer club smash, head in the direction of the Miami Winter Music Conference.

At SxSW, Brits such as Arctic Monkeys, Go! Team and Duke Spirit will hope to catch the eyes of the world's, and especially the American Music Industry, as the talent spotters enjoy the Austin Texas sunshine between 15th-19th March. This event has become one of the most significant in the musical calendar for spotting the next big thing.

For those of us stuck at home in the tale end of winter, there's many a new album to look forward to. Delays, Morning Runner, Fightstar, Placebo, Mogwai and Massive Attack all have releases scheduled for March.

April will see new albums from V headliner Morrissey, plus Zutons, Charlatans, Streets, Lacuna Coil and Snow Patrol.

May is when two of the heavyweights of 2006 should be with us. Red Hot Chili Peppers new double album arrives ahead of their stadium tour in June, and the new Muse record is scheduled for a mid May release. As well as this, Tool, Keane and Dirty Pretty Things have new records out just in time for the summer.

Looking further ahead to when the tents are being put away for another year and the live music scene revolves around the return of thousands of students to universities around the UK, we already know that Maximo Park will be promoting their new record in September and October. Follow-up records from Killers and Bloc Party should be with us by then and before Christmas Iron Maiden are rumoured to be playing in the UK.

A Maiden tour schedule for Scandinavia in November has been circulating online. Some UK pre-Christmas Maiden fun would be very welcome and isn't out of the question.
