Dot To Dot Festival comes to Nottingham this Sunday, on what will be the event’s first live appearance in its usual May slot for three years.
Postponed because of Covid-19 in 2020 and then moved back to September in 2021, the festival – which gives a platform to up-and-coming artists of all genres – is back again to provide its overwhelming, multi-venue glut of performers.
After taking on Bristol on Saturday, the likes of Alfie Templeman, Squid, Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn, Baby Queen and Ghetts will be bringing the party back to Notts this Sunday.
It will be a manic one, too.
There are 23 different stages set up for performances from 1pm until as late as 3am at some venues, with an incredible array of artists bringing their skills.
Rock City hosts Cucamaras, Cassia, Templeman and Squid amongst others, while it’s well worth looking out for piri & tommy and NiNE8 Collective at Rescue Rooms.
The Bodega welcomes Girlband, Lime Garden, and Honeyglaze, while BETA hosts Retro Video Club and Jane Weaver.
Nottingham Trent Student Union’s very own The Level welcomes King No-One, Baby Queen and Ghetts amongst many others, while The Loft will have Prima Queen, Bridges and Feet to entice punters upstairs.
Literally all corners of the city centre are covered, with The Playwright, Rough Trade, Jamcafe, 31K, The Angel, Percy Picklebackers and Malt Cross all playing host to fantastic music too.
With stages at Rock City, Rescue Rooms, Stealth, Spankies and Black Cherry Lounge all very much on the doorstep of City Campus, the atmosphere around NTU this Sunday will be unmissable.
The culinary delights on offer are outstanding as well.
Squeaky Beaver Poutine will be at Rescue Rooms, Tacolypto will be at Bodega, and Rock City will have Prad Thai, The Alpine Pizza Co. and Pola Ice Poles on hand to cater to festival-goers, whatever the weather.
As a long-overdue celebration of Nottingham music culture and all the fabulous talent around in the UK right now, it’s a delight to see Dot To Dot back to its rightful place.
Live music, great food, excellent company.
What could be better?
