Dot To Dot, the UK’s only tri-city traveling festival returns to venues across Bristol for 2012 – announcing its first salvo of must-see artists, including The Drums and Pulled Apart By Horses.
Renowned in its seven year history for offering guaranteed crowd-pleasing bands alongside the first live glimpses of some of today’s biggest acts, which have included double Brits winner Ed Sheeran, The xx, Florence & The Machine, The Naked and Famous, Friendly Fires, Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons, this year’s multi-venue event will take place across the Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend, visiting Bristol on June 2nd, Nottingham on June 3, making its triumphant finale in Manchester on June 4th.
Other acts set to traverse the triumvirate of cities include timeless folkster Willy Mason, whose recent hook up with Lianne La Havas opened him up to a whole new audience, Nottingham art-pop quintet and fast-rising stars, Dog Is Dead, bliss-drenched duo Summer Camp and Bombay Bicycle Club collaborator Lucy Rose. And there are still many more acts to be announced in the coming months.
Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood said: “More than ever Dot To Dot 2012 will see a great line up of exciting new music alongside the hottest live acts at the moment. Our first announcement of indie titans The Drums and fast rising rockers Pulled Apart by Horses sets the tone for Bristol, Nottingham and Manchester to each have a great day of fresh and exciting music.”
