The best rock, pop, jazz & folk

• T in the Park 80,000 folks have over 100 reasons on stage to get down this weekend, from Arctic Monkeys to Wu-Tang Clan (pictured) and all in between. See full running order. Balado, Fri 6-Sun 8 Jul. (Rock & Pop)

• The Skids After Green Day and U2 got together to cover ‘The Saints are Coming’ last year many were asking just who was behind this mighty new wave anthem. Reformed and reinvigorated, this is a wee warm up before their T in the Park appearance. Glen Pavilion, Dunfermline, Thu 5 Jul. (Rock & Pop)

• Converge Hardcore’s most innovative and compulsive force make a welcome return visit to Scotland in support of their new album. See preview. Classic Grand, Glasgow, Fri 6 Jul. (Rock & Pop)

• Smokey Robinson See preview. SECC, Glasgow, Tue 10 Jul. (Rock & Pop)

• Duty Free@the Cab The students may be gone for the summer but that doesn’t mean there’s no bargains to be had. Excellent local talent, including The Magnificents who are previewed here, parading their wares in a summer-long season of free shows. Cabaret Voltaire, Edinburgh, Fri 13 Jul. (Rock & Pop)

• Indian Summer Wilco and The Flaming Lips top a bill of eclectic left field gems from the acoustic quirks of Andrew Bird and Daniel Johnston to the electronic madness of Mouse on Mars and Tim Goldsworthy. See feature. Victoria Park, Glasgow, Sat 14-Sun 15 Jul. (Rock & Pop)

• Ozomatli A furious fusion of old school funk with Bay area hip hop (they once counted members of Jurassic 5 in their troupe) and massed Latin brass makes for unbeatable summer party music. They should be playing out on Glasgow Green on a sunny Sunday afternoon, but the Arches will work instead just fine. Arches, Glasgow, Mon 16 Jul. (Rock & Pop)
