Following its successful first three years, during which tens of thousands of people enjoyed the likes of The Flaming Lips, Brian Eno, Underworld and Caribou (2016) and Pixies, Orbital and Alt-J (2017), Bluedot Festival returns to the grounds of Cheshire’s Jodrell Bank in July 2019.
With many more announcements to follow, the festival recently revealed their first headliner: groundbreaking electronic group, Kraftwerk. A huge score for the festival, the German pioneers are perhaps the biggest act ever to grace the Bluedot stage. The rest of the lineup now has a lot to live up to, but judging by previous years, there’s no cause for concern!
The 2018 line-up featured The Chemical Brothers, The Flaming Lips and Future Islands at the top of an all-star musical bill. Public Service Broadcasting, Gary Numan, Little Dragon and Slowdive also appeared on the programme, while Manchester venue Band on the Wall hosted a Roots stage at the festival for the first time.
The three-day festival always provides a unique programme of a diverse and exciting musical line-up with live science experiments, expert talks and comedy as well as immersive artworks – all beneath the awe-inspiring shadow of the Lovell Telescope. The rest of 2019’s lineup is still under wraps, but come back for updates in the new year!
