Tri-city urban festival Dot To Dot have unveiled a first wave of names for this year’s events in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham. Each year the festival hosts an array of diverse talent in eclectic venues across the three cities, with a history of hosting impressive names before international popularity. Joining fellow fan-favourite Sounds From The Other City in reaching its fifteenth year, the award-winning all-dayer has quickly put its own unique stamp on the festival circuit since a first outing in 2005, and looks to again build on its successful history with an excellent new line up for 2019. Previous names who have graced the festival include Florence And The Machine, Pulled Apart By Horses, Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, Courtney Barnett and Metronomy. Tickets for this musical extravaganza will cost you just £14 for access to over fifty acts and some of the city’s favourite venues.
English-Spanish trio Crystal Fighters will headline this year’s festival, following the release of fourth studio album ‘Gaia & Friends’. Hip hop and jazz multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rakei will also be performing, along with Birmingham indie five-piece Swim Deep. Attendees can also look forward to performances from Liverpool four-piece The Night Café, hard-hitting trio Dream Wife and local favourites The Orielles.
