Festival Preview: Dot to Dot Festival 2017

Dot to Dot Festival brings you back to the UK with a real unique take on the festival experience. Unlike your standard UK Festivals like Reading, it takes the whole line up through each city together. So they all travel together to play in the following city the next day.

This metropolitan festival taking place across Nottingham, Bristol and Manchester has our team salivating at the mouth thought of the carnage each day will bring. Bands roaring in and leaving the city not quite sure has happened to it within a matter of 24 hours.

As it is within a city the festival makes use of the best venues across the cities, bringing with them new talent to fill their stages. This is a great one for the local lovers, who prefer a Great British holiday over the sunburn and Cerveza.
