“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

Dot To Dot Festival is established as the UK’s Premier Festival for unearthing and showcasing the hottest new talent around, alongside established acts from across the globe. 2016 marks the Festival’s 11th edition and will see it returning to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham from the 27-29th May. Dot To Dot’s ever eclectic line-up is set to make this year one of the biggest and best in the festival’s history.

We are delighted to unveil our very special co-headliners as the native New York rockers, AUGUSTINES. Self-proclaimed “jovial and energetic people” they have built up a reputation for their intense shows and heavy interaction with the audience. With sold out headline tours across Europe and America, Augustines’ reputation as a fearsome live band proceeds them.

Joining Augustines is Kosovan-British 20 year old DUA LIPA, who’s sultry dark pop stylings got her recognised by Lana Del Rey’s management when she was just 16. Championed by Radio 1 as a Future Sound Of 2016 nominee, and breaking chart top 20s all over Europe, Dua Lipa is being talked about for all the right reasons.

Infectious post-punk four piece SPRING KING from Manchester are making waves all over, and will definitely be one to watch at this years’ festival. Their track ‘City’ was the first song ever to be played on Apple’s Beats 1; we can see why Zane Lowe loves their energetic, punchy tracks. Also joining the Dot To Dot party are THE HUNNA. Fast becoming one of indie rock’s most exciting prospects, with a massively growing fan-base, high octane singles and a sell-out headline tour, these guys are a must see. “An eclectic mix of innovative, ground-breaking acts manage to secure the festival’s spirit and provide the musical kudos” Virtual Festivals

All these and many more will be joining the previously announced artists already making up the bill, these include the anthemic MYSTERY JETS, Australian indie giants THE TEMPER TRAP, beautifully honest balladist LAUREN AQUILINA, euphoric guitar rock supremoes SUNDARA KARMA and the Dot to Dot debut of NME Awards Best New Artist, RAT BOY.

Dot To Dot booker Anton Lockwood said of this year’s line-up “With this announcement we’re pleased to welcome some exceptional artists to Dot To Dot. Augustines are long-time friends of DHP, and their heartfelt songs are sure to prompt many a singalong, and perhaps even raise a tear or two. Dua Lipa is one of the most exciting new talents to emerge in the last few months, her sassy pop-noir, and riveting stage presence is going take her to be a superstar sooner rather than later, so we’re delighted to be able to have her come and play for us. Of course, as ever with Dot To Dot, we have a list of handpicked new artists, many of which will become your new favourites, so we urge everyone to check them out, and come down to the festival early to enjoy the UK’s finest new music event!”

The second wave announcement also includes: BABA NAGA, BABEHEAVEN, BEN CAPLAN & THE CASUAL SMOKERS, BLAENAVON, CLOVES, DAY WAVE, DIET CIG, DRELLER, EERA, FACE, FEWS, FORMATION, GIRL FRIEND, HANNAH GRACE, HAUS, HUDSON SCOTT, INTO THE ARK, JOHN JOSEPH BRILL, MEADOWLARK, MT WOLF, NEW DESERT BLUES, NIMMO, PALACE WINTER , PLEASURE BEACH, RAPHAELLA, REIGNING DAYS, RIVRS, SARAH WALK, SEGO, SKINNY LIVING, STARLING, STEVIE PARKER, SWAY CLARKE, SWMRS, TAMU MASSIF, WHITE ROOM, WILL JOSEPH COOK
