Dot to Dot 2022

A preliminary line-up has been announced for the fifth edition of the Dot to Dot festival, which will take place during the Spring Holiday Weekend of May 23rd and 24th, across the two cities of Bristol and Nottingham.

This year's bill will include the (deservedly) newly hyped troubadour Tommy Reilly, BBC Sound 2009 winner Little Boots, one great on the return in Patrick Wolf, U.S rockers Cage The Elephant, Pat Benatar-cum-Debbie Harry's musical lovechild Ladyhawke, and dancefloor-filling combo Friendly Fires.

Previous years have seen the likes of The Rakes, The Mystery Jets, The (now defunct) Long Blondes and Dirty Pretty Things, and Santogold.

This year's instalment of the fest reverts to a two-city-spanning programme, after last year's had added a London leg to the equation.

Tickets have been on sale since January, with £20.00 early birds selling out in no time, and are still available at the full price of £25.00 (+ booking fee) per day ticket.
