The summer is closing in quick but there are still some class events taking place.

Electric Picnic normally marks the end of the summer fun and that is only three weeks away.

So don't let the summer slip away with regrets about not doing enough and pop along to one of these this weekend:

1. Love Sensation

Possibly one of the most anticipated events of the summer.

Love Sensation is kicking off for the first time with acts such as Lily Allen, Clean Bandit, and Kelis ready to headline. There will be plenty going on over the weekend and there are still some tickets on sale.

2. Another Love Story

ALS was one of the most talked-about festivals last year and this year is set to be even better.

The bespoke festival offers drink, food, music, art, and conversation. This is not to be missed and there are limited tickets left.

3. The Big Grill Festival

Little needs to be said about The Big Grill.

Tonnes of food and drink - just take a look at this mouthwatering picture:

4. Solas Festival

This is a new mini-festival showcasing Irish underground electronic artists and DJs.

On top of that, it's all in aid of Pieta House Suicide & Mental Health charity.

Grab your tickets here.

5. Dogs Trustival

Okay, something a little different but arguably the top runner for me.

Music, food and puppies. What more could you possibly want?
