Dot To Dot returns for 2013 ready to take over Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham yet again.

The festival, which spans three cities over one weekend, has long been the barometer for acts that are about to break and 2012’s event was no exception. The line-up for last summer’s event speaks for itself with Jake Bugg, Bastille, Peace and Dog is Dead (to name but a few) all subsequently achieving huge success.

Previous line-ups have also included The xx, Florence & The Machine, The Naked and Famous, Friendly Fires, Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons, Mystery Jets, Beach House, The Cribs, Wild Beasts, The Joy Formiddable, SBTRKT, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and many, many more.

v We pride ourselves on bringing thousands of music fans an eclectic mix of innovative, exciting and ground- breaking acts in intimate settings we feel compliment the artists.

The first wave of acts for this year will be announced in the coming months. Tickets provide access to the entire bill across all the venues and are incredible value for money, currently priced at just £20 per day.

“One of the UK’s fastest rising festivals” - NME

“An eclectic mix of innovative, ground-breaking acts manage to secure the festival’s spirit and provide the musical kudos” - Virtual Festivals

“With a stunning bill and venues within yards of one another we’ll leave you to join the dots.” - Clash
