FESTIVAL INFORMATION

Hit The Deck takes place across four venues in Nottingham – Rock City, The Rescue Rooms, Steath, and the Forum – on Sunday April 21st 2013, and in Bristol at the O2 Academy, The Thekla, The Fleece and The Exchange, on Saturday April 20th 2013.

Wristband Exchange

You’ll be able to exchange your ticket for a festival wristband from 10am at Rock City in Nottingham and at The Thekla in Bristol. Hit The Deck starts at 12pm but we advise you to collect your wristband early to avoid long queuing times!

Please note: you will not be able to gain entry to other venues without having collected your wristband first.

Room Capacity

Each stage has a specific capacity and when this is reached entry to that stage will be limited, so if you are wanting to see a specific band please arrive early so you don’t miss out!

Underage Drinking

Hit The Deck operates a no tolerance policy on underage drinking. If anyone under the age of 18 is found drinking alcohol or attempting to purchase alcohol, or if anyone over the age of 18 is found to be obtaining alcohol for anyone underage they will be removed from the festival and have their wristband confiscated.

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

• “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

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

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.

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.

Building relationships with new artists has been at the forefront of our business for many years. We’ve had proven success with events like Dot to Dot Festival and Bristol Harbour Festival, which have been prominent in giving new artists a platform to share their music.

To maintain this initiative and to expand it even further, artists can now contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with their name, social media accounts, location and most importantly a link to their music for our team to review.

Every act will have their information logged, which will allow our team to keep a record of them so that when any opportunities arise, we can try and help secure a suitable slot at one of our shows.

If you are a solo artist, DJ or in a band be sure to drop us an email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with some links to your music, your social media assets and your location.
