Dot 10 Dot
2015 marks Dot To Dot Festival’s 10thbirthday and will see us returning toManchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 22nd to 24th May. Our ever eclectic line-up is set to make this landmark year one of the biggest and best in our history. With lots of exciting announcements to follow, this is just the first wave of artists to play this year’s Festival:
Following a stand out set at last year’s festival, headlining this year 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 Morrisalso joins us 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, you 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 our 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!
Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood said: ‘We’re very excited to be celebrating our 10th birthday here at Dot To Dot and can’t wait to bring the festival back to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham! We’re proud of the reputation we’ve developed over the last 10 years for promoting new, up and coming talent by giving artists their first chance in front of a festival crowd, and this year’s line-up is no different. Having seen so many previous Dot To Dot artists become huge successes in recent years we can’t wait to watch some of the emerging talent that the music scene has to offer at this year’s festival. This announcement is only the start of it!’
