A Brief History: Dot To Dot started 12 years ago in Nottingham in just three venues and hasn’t looked back since. After huge performances from Ladytron and Simian Mobile Disco, it expanded into Bristol in 2007, which saw The Cribs and Kate Nash take to the stage. Since, they’ve held electronic days in London, saw The 1975 in their early days and introduced the hoard of attendees to new and upcoming acts they would never otherwise love.

How To Get There: The festival stretches over the city centres of Manchester, Nottingham and Bristol so transport is easy! Catch a train or coach, or just drive to the cities and head to the wristband exchanges to get started.

Gigslutz Top Tip: There’s over 400 acts playing across the three dates, so it’s not likely you’ll get to see everyone you want to (sadly). They’ve published all the set times, so we suggest it’s now time to plan! Plan. Plan. Plan. It’s the only way to fit everything in.

Memorable Moments: In 2015, Gigslutz headed up to Manchester to catch what was going on. We caught Saint Raymond’s “sweetly humble voice and poetic lyrics” and the “folky undertones and captivating vocals” of Holy Holy. We can’t wait to be back!

Did You Know? In 2008, the festival held the event in Shoreditch London, known as Hox to Dot. It was a more electronic line-up, with DJs taking up the majority of the line-up. It features live sets from Juiceboxxx and Cutting Pink With Knives.

How To Get Tickets: Tickets are still available for all cities here.
