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. Now in its ninth year and touring Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 23rd to the 25th May, Dot To Dot’s ever eclectic line-up is set for its biggest and best year to date.

Headlining this year’s festival will be Peace, the zeitgeist guitar band of 2014. It’s been a phenomenal couple of years for the group, having released their critically acclaimed debut album In Love and going on to woo crowds worldwide. Indeed, seasoned Dot To Dot-goers will be aware that the band return to the festival as headliners following a stand out performance in their formative years at Dot To Dot 2012. With third studio album “Atlas” imminent, lo-fi surf rockers Real Estate make a welcome visit to the UK.

A trio of parody upstarts with musical know-how The Midnight Beast also join this year’s line-up. The bonafide internet sensations, with over 64 million YouTube views, are sure to crack a wry smile on the Dot to Dot-goer whilst they dance to their humorous hits. Parisian alternative indie-electro-pop trio We Were Evergreen and indie revivalists Wolf Alice also join the bill. Further along the line-up, expect a quixotic mix of folk-electronica from Fyfe, grunge tales of youth and love and anger from Darlia, the soul tinged styling’s of London based New Yorker Norma Jean Martine plus lots, lots more. All of whom could one-day be headlining Dot to Dot Festival!

Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood (of DHP Family) said: ‘At Dot to Dot we are really proud of our record of giving fresh young artists one of their first chances to prove themselves to a festival crowd, so in 2014 it’s especially pleasing to see Dot to Dot veterans Jake Bugg, Ellie Goulding and Ed Sheeran selling out huge arena shows! Who of this year’s line up are going to make the leap to superstardom? We can’t be sure, but we do know the artists we are announcing today are just the first few of a line of exciting and diverse new artists, and Dot to Dot is your chance to see them now before the arena stage beckons!”

Previous Dot to Dot line-ups have seen performances from The xx, Mumford and Sons, The 1975, London Grammar, Jake Bugg, SBTKRT, The Cribs and many, many more. With the emphasis on showcasing the hottest new talent on the planet there will be lots more exciting additions to be announced for Dot To Dot’s 2013 line-up.
