At a loose end for happenings in the UK for the next week? HYPEBEAST has plenty of options for you. There’s more than enough happening this week, the concerts this time lead with Childish Gambino, The Internet, Noname, Drake and local acts such as Ray BLK and Slowthai.

There’s also more than enough sample sales, new restaurants and exhibitions to visit while you’re in the city. So without further ado, here’s a list of happenings on the weekend of March 22 and beyond.
