So, Foals have made their way to the top of Stereoboard’s Hot Ticket Chart, relegating newcomers Years and Years to #4. Meanwhile, it seems the news of the possible split of One Direction has sent fans into a ticket buying frenzy as the four-piece have shot from #8 last week to #2 this week.

Much loved crooner Cliff Richard has entered the chart at an impressive #3 , while Reading Festival and the Zac Brown Band have come in at a slightly more underwhelming #12 and #19, respectively.

We unfortunately say bye-bye to a lot of artists this week, including FaithlessThe AshesFlorence And The MachineDuran DuranJess GlynneKiss Haunted House Party and Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
