What's On? - Monday 13th June - Sunday 19th June

Another Monday off work, another chance to do the 'What's On' guide. There are some cracking gigs on this week, as usual too many to be able to afford to go to. Through in the West End of Glasgow, the aptly named West End Festival is still in full swing, I've selected my picks for the week, but head to the website for full listings.

Also in full swing is The Leith Festival. No listing from that here, but if your are in Edinburgh or fancy a day trip, check out the website for a guide to what's happening.

And quite excitingly outside Aviemore is The Insider Festival which is running from Friday 17th to Monday 20th June. Check the website for a full list of bands playing, but highlights include; Admiral Fallow, Let's Talk About Trees, Washington Irving and more!
