DOT TO DOT 2017 SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT!

2017 dot to dot second announcement

The UK’s premier festival for unearthing the best new talent, Dot To Dot Festival, returns to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 26th-28th May for its 12th edition. After smashing record attendance, and marking a sell-out Manchester event in 2016, more of the same is expected for 2017, with a huge lineup of established performers and emerging artists from around the world. Dot To Dot, are delighted to reveal the second wave of artists to play this year’s festival, with more bands still to follow:

Hotly tipped four-piece THE BIG MOON open the list of new additions. Bold, articulate, and with an insatiable ear for melody, they are perfectly poised and ready for their Dot To Dot debut. With their highly anticipated debut album, ‘Love In The 4th Dimension’, scheduled for release at the start of April through Fiction Records, we’re sure you’ll be hearing plenty about these girls over the next few months. Manchester’s own THE SLOW READERS CLUB are also set for their first Dot To Dot appearance. Currently halfway through a UK tour, with sell out shows in London and Nottingham, we can’t wait to see a series of imposing live sets at Dot To Dot by this much acclaimed band. They’ll be joined by Stockholm’s JOSEFIN ÖHRN + THE LIBERATION, whose brand of radiant psychedelia stands effortlessly apart from the increasingly staid, and often paradoxically predictable, modern take on the genre.

The second wave announcement also includes: ANNA STRAKER, ARTIFICIAL PLEASURE, ATLAS WYND, AVANTE BLACK, C. MACLEOD, CALLUM BEATTIE, CONFIDENCE MAN, ELLIE ROSE, EYRE LLEW, GOTHIC TROPIC, HANNAH GEORGAS, HOLIDAY OSCAR, HUSKY LOOPS, INDIGO LO, ISLAND, JACK LADDER, JAKL, JESSE TERRY, JORDAN ALLEN, KUDU BLUE, LITTLE CUB, LITTLE HOURS, MIYA FOLICK, MYSTIC BRAVES, PIXX, SONDRE LERCHE, SORRY and TO KILL A KING. They’ll be joining SUNDARA KARMA, AMBER RUN, THE GROWLERS, LOUIS BERRY, HONEYBLOOD, PINEGROVE, CHERRY GLAZERR, TOM GRENNAN, PICTURE THIS and lots more on this year’s Dot To Dot line-up.

Previous Dot to Dot line-ups have seen performances from The xx, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, The 1975, Frank Turner, Caribou, Wolf Alice, Jake Bugg, SBTKRT, Florence + The Machine, Peace, Courtney Barnett and many, many more. With the emphasis on showcasing the hottest new talent on the planet, there will be lots more exciting additions to be announced for Dot To Dot’s 2017 line-up.

Will Varley!

2017 will varley poster

After selling out the Union Chapel in London last year, rambling folk singer Will Varley announces his biggest headline tour to date, culminating with a show at London’s legendary Shepherds Bush Empire.

Momentum has been growing around the young troubadour since the release of his 4th studio album ‘Kingsdown Sundown’ and this year he is poised to bring his music to an even wider audience. The album was released in November 2016 to rave reviews, reaching number 5 in the Official Independent Album Breakers Chart and receiving four stars from The Independent.

Darkly comic, often politically charged and always emotionally loaded, Varley’s live shows have been drawing crowds across the world, and his headline tours have seen him selling out venues from Berlin to New York and everywhere in between. Last summer saw triumphant festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival, with packed tents shouting along to every word. 

Tickets can be purchased from http://www.willvarley.com/

It’s been a meteoric rise for the 29 year old who started self-releasing his albums and travelling around England on foot only five years ago. Since then he signed a deal with independent music champions Xtra Mile Recordings and toured extensively across the UK, Europe and North America opening for supporter and label mate Frank Turner, Scottish heroes The Proclaimers and Billy Bragg.

Will Varley epitomises the DIY attitude. From the festival and record label he co-runs in Kent to his self-directed music videos which have clocked up millions of views online, Will revels in being a driving force in every aspect of his music. Since its release Will has been working on more new material and after lots of adventures abroad he’s hugely excited about returning for a headline tour in the UK this autumn.

“A serious new talent who has found his own, unique voice and will quench the thirst of audiences across the world" - Simon Nicol of Fairport Convention

“There’s a flinty, wounded edge to Will Varley’s delivery that recalls the Dylan of The Times They Are A-Changin’,” 4/5 - The Independent

“One of the best songwriters in the UK” - Frank Turner

Declan McKenna!

 

The hotly-tipped young Brit will headline ten dates in May, kicking off at Thekla in Bristol on the 15th May, and concluding at Concorde 2 in Brighton on the 30th May. The run includes a night at Heaven in London on the 23rd May. This new run of dates is in addition to the previously announced UK shows in March, and will be preceded by Declan’s first appearances at Coachella in California this April.

Tickets for the May tour go on general sale from Friday 24th February via www.DeclanMckenna.net

Following twelve months of persistent touring across the UK, US, and Europe, Declan and his band’s live shows have soon become spectacles in themselves. As an artist who interacts regularly with his fanbase on social media, the energy and elation in the ever increasing sized rooms when the artist and fans are all brought together, makes for an incredible atmosphere and experience.

in a very short period of time, the recently turned 18 years old has become synonymous with wrapping his fizzing alt-pop songs in smart, engaged lyrical content. It’s been a timely arrival for this young British musician who doesn’t proclaim to have all the answers, but believes it his duty to at least pose a few pertinent questions. Crucially perhaps, none of the activist in Declan comes at the expense of his ear for a melody, and with new single, Kids Don’t Wanna Come Home, Declan has divulged another tantalising taster to his debut album, due for announcement imminently.

Winner of Best Festival at the Live UK Awards 2016

“Dot To Dot is proof that you don’t need to pitch a tent in a muddy field to get that festival feeling” The Independent

“With a stunning bill and venues within yards of one another we’ll leave you to join the dots” Clash

“Each place opens up all of their best venues to embrace these soon-to-be-huge acts and we all get to boast that we saw them up close before they were huge. The only real worries are the inevitable agonising clashes and where to begin.” Virtual Festivals

The UK’s premier festival for unearthing the best new talent, Dot To Dot Festival, returns to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 26th-28th May for its 12th edition. After smashing record attendance, and marking a sell-out Manchester event in 2016, more of the same is expected for 2017, with a huge lineup of established performers and emerging artists from around the world.

With many exciting announcements to follow, Dot To Dot, are ecstatic to announce the first wave of artists to play this year’s festival:

Euphoric guitar rock supremoes SUNDARA KARMA will return to the Dot To Dot stage, this time as festival headliners! Their meteoric rise and epic debut album came as no surprise to anybody who have seen these guys at Dot To Dot before. With stage presence in abundance, and a plethora of huge songs such as ‘Flame’, ‘Loveblood’ and ‘She Said’, Sundara Karma embody everything Dot To Dot stands for and we can’t wait to see them own the headline slot.

Joining them will be more Dot To Dot legends, in the form of Nottingham’s own AMBER RUN. Their scintillating second album just dropped after a year in the studio, and we couldn’t be happier for their return. Californian rockers THE GROWLERS also join the party, after their latest album ‘City Club’, produced by The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas, took the UK by storm when it was released last year.

After a memorable performance in 2015, high octane Scottish duo HONEYBLOOD, have also been confirmed to return. With their blend of Americana influenced, emo-tinged indie rock PINEGROVE are crossing the Atlantic for this year’s Dot To Dot. LOUIS BERRY will be stamping his own brand of Merseyside rock ‘n’ roll on this year’s festival. We’ll also be treated to sets by much-hyped LA 3-piece CHERRY GLAZERR, Irish chart-toppers PICTURE THIS and BBC Sound Of 2017 shortlisted vocalist TOM GRENNAN.

The first wave announcement also includes: ALASKALASKA, ALL WE ARE, ARDYN, BANFI, COSMO PYKE, CROOX, CUCKOOLANDER, EASY LIFE, FREAK, HEATERS, HORSE THIEF, KOLARS, LIV DAWSON, LOW ISLAND, NILÜFER YANYA, OVERCOATS, PARCELS, PAREKH & SINGH, REDFACES, SONNY, SWIMMING TAPES, TEN TONNES, TENDER, THE NIGHT CAFÉ, VAGABON, WILLIE J HEALEY, YELLOW DAYS and YONAKA.

Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood, of DHP Family, said: “After our record breaking festival in 2016 we are so excited to bring the festival back to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham this year! We are always proud to see so many previous Dot To Dot artists become huge successes, with Sundara Karma working their way up the ranks to headline this year’s event. We pride ourselves on finding & nurturing new artists, we can’t wait to see the stars of the future playing in small venues this year before their big breaks. This first announcement is only the tip of the iceberg, and there are loads more phenomenal performers still to be announced across multiple venues very soon!”

Previous Dot to Dot line-ups have seen performances from The xx, Ed Sheeran, Mumford and Sons, The 1975, Frank Turner, Caribou, Wolf Alice, Jake Bugg, SBTKRT, Florence + The Machine, Peace, Courtney Barnett and many, many more.
