Winner of ‘Best Metropolitan Festival 2013’ at the UK Festival Awards, Dot To Dot Festival is established as the UKs premier festival for unearthing the hottest new talent around, alongside established acts from all over the globe. 2015 marks the festival’s 10th year and will see it returning to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 22nd to 24th May. Dot To Dot’s ever eclectic line-up is set to make this landmark year one of the biggest and best in the festival’s history.
Following a stand out set at last year’s festival, headlining this year’s festival will be Saint Raymond, Nottingham’s latest success story. It’s been an incredible year for the singer-songwriter, which has seen him embark on an arena tour with Ed Sheeran as well as a take on a sell-out headline tour of his own. Twenty-one year old Rae Morris also joins the festival in Manchester and Nottingham following a sold out UK tour and top 10 critically acclaimed album “Unguarded’. Irish pop folk duo Hudson Taylor, comprising of brothers Harry and Alfie join the bill, along with The Wytches who bring their blend of critically acclaimed surf-psych to the festival. Also joining Dot To Dot 2015 are Canadian punk-rock band Single Mothers and New York based indie-rockers, Cymbals Eat Guitars.
Glaswegian duo Honeyblood bring their brand of grunge-pop to the festival alongside the folk infused Haim-esque harmonies from Australian trio Little May and Hinds (formerly known as Deers), the garage rock up and comers from Madrid. Laura Doggett (whose music you may recognise from ITV Series Broadchurch) will also perform with her distinctive soulful sound along with the hotly tipped pop fuzz of Menace Beach. Further along the line up, Dot To Dot fans can expect to hear sensual R&B pop courtesy of Brooklyn based singer Tei Shi, atmospheric indie sounds from Racing Glaciers and 4-piece Welsh rock band Pretty Vicious who’ll perform their angsty anthems at the Bristol and Nottingham dates. The full line-up also features Alex Burey’s tenderly emotional pop music, the ‘80s infused electro pop of April Towers and the playful bohemian indie tunes of Vitamin as well as many, many more incredible acts yet to be announced!
