[wide]dot | Dot to Dot: 24th/25th/26th May 2013, Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham[/wide]Dot to Dot Festival started back in 2005, taking place in three venues in Nottingham. The proceeding years have seen it expand over a wider range of venues and grow to encompass Bristol and Manchester. Taking place on consecutive days in the different cities over the Bank Holiday Weekend at the end of May, it’s now firmly established on the UK festival circuit.

2013 sees a mix of established and up and coming British artists along with some from further afield. Dry the River, Lucy Rose, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Tom Odell are joined by the likes of Bo Ningen, Deap Vally, Chapel Club, Little Green Cars, To Kill a King with more still to be announced.
