Bluedot Festival 2021 at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre, 22–25 July 2021, from £59.75 - Book now

Located at Jodrell Bank Observatory, Bluedot is a weekend-long festival of live music, science experiments, expert talks and immersive artworks. Only four years old, it’s already carved out a strong identity in the British festival scene, offering 21,000 welly-clad revellers a unique collision of entertainment and information.

2021’s festival – postponed from 2020 – will be topped by Björk, one of the most influential and ground-breaking musicians of all time. She’ll close the weekend with a uniquely commissioned performance alongside Manchester’s Hallé Orchestra, featuring bespoke projections on the Lovell Telescope.

Also topping the bill are indie-electro giants, Metronomy, who will headline Saturday evening, whilst Groove Armada, one of the planet’s best-loved dance acts, will close Friday night. The stellar line-up also sees Spiritualized, Roisin Murphy, Squarepusher, Tangerine Dream and EOB (the new solo project of Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien) take to Jodrell Bank for what promises to be a killer weekend of live music and discovery.

With plenty more names still yet to roll in, check back here for the latest scoop!
