Festival Guide: Dot To Dot

Here's the skinny on Dot To Dot Festival 2018 ...

Festival season is fast approaching! It’s not all campsites and muddy fields, though. Multi-venue festivals bring the rock in a rain-free environment. One of our favourites is Dot To Dot. Brought to you by the team at DHP, Dot To Dot will be bringing some of the UK’s best established, and up and coming talent to a town near you in May.

Check out this highlights video from Dot To Dot 2017 to get a feel for the vibe:

What’s Dot To Dot then?

Celebrating their 13th year, Dot To Dot takes place on the 25th May in Manchester, 26th May in Bristol and finishes on the 27th May in Nottingham. It’s a metropolitan music festival that makes use of all the coolest venues in each of the three cities while still facilitating an irresistible music-loving community buzz.

Dot To Dot prides itself on showcasing new talent; acts who have previously played the festival include The xx, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, The 1975 and loads more. Dot To Dot provides music fans with the chance to see the next big thing on their doorstep.   

Where’s it happening?

Details are hush-hush at the moment, but the festival will find itself located in some of the finest venues Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham have to offer. Best of all, no wellies will be required.
