Things are hotting up in the Dot To Dot office with just 11 days until everything kicks off in Bristol on 28th May before joining up the dots between Nottingham on the 29th May and Manchester on Bank Holiday Monday 30th May. Boasting a line-up that includes Hurts, We Are Scientists, The Joy Formidable, The Phoenix Foundation, The Naked And Famous and Braids amongst many others, Dot To Dot is set to unveil some special late night club action and a raft of local bands for both Bristol and Nottingham.
Dot To Dot are delighted to announce that, one of the countries favourite actors and a renowned party smashing DJ, Mat Horne will be hosting his lauded club night Session at both the Bristol and Nottingham dates over the bank holiday weekend. Playing alternative, indie and party tunes, with the emphasis on fun, Mat will also be joined by cutting edge collective The Trash Society DJs and Push Music DJs who will be dropping indie dance, electro, disco and the best new buzz bands around plus there will be special guests each night.
International Songwriter of the year 2010, King Charles will also be joining the bill for the Bristol and Nottingham dates. Enjoying support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Rob da Bank, John Kennedy, the NME and many more, King Charles’ majestic psychedelic pomp is set to see him ruling the rock ‘n’ roll kingdom, making him one not to miss. Mysterious sextet Yaaks are also coming on board to play the Bristol and Nottingham Dot To Dot dates. Yaaks’ Jean-Jacques Rousseau citing noir-dance vibes have been setting the A&R community alight and have so far let their music do all the talking, so make sure you catch them to see what all the fuss is about.
As well as some of the most exciting new music from around the country there will also be plenty of the top talent from each city on the bill including Bravo Brave Bats, The Broken Arm Of Love, Cajita, Count To Fire, The Fauns, The Hit-Ups, Hysterical Injury, Idles, Koshiro, Little Victories, The Naturals, The Other Tribe, Ouija Birds, Scarlet Rascal & The Trainwreck, SJ Esau, Termites, These Black Shores and Towns who will all be getting in on the Bristol action.
