Introducing Festival Radar.

Summer is fast approaching, which means festival season is nearly here! Over the next few weeks and months, URB will be counting down the days by taking a sneak peak into some of the festivals we cannot wait for. First up, here's Dot to Dot!

Dot to Dot Festival

This year, Dot to Dot will be celebrating its 10th birthday by bringing some of the world's finest acts and freshest emerging talent to Bristol, Manchester and Nottingham. Pick a city (we'll be hopping on a short train to Bristol) and get access to a whopping 14 hours of music across different stages of the city.

Some of Bristol's most exciting venues will be opening their doors on Saturday 23rd May: O2 Academy, Thekla, Louisiana, Trinity and MANY MORE!

What a lineup!

Saint Raymond, who releases his eagerly-anticipated album 'Young Blood' this June, will be headlining Dot to Dot. Also in Bristol will be Birmingham's Swim Deep and our favourite Irish duo/our pals Hudson Taylor and Amber Run. Other acts and URB firm favourites include Best Coast, Nothing But Thieves, Prides, Martin Luke Brown (who recently played an exclusive set in our studio), and Bath born-and-bred Laura Doggett. Basically, we're so psyched for this lineup!

Bring it on, Bristol

Our favourite thing about Dot to Dot is you won't need to search very hard to find all your new favourite bands and artists as they will all be in one place. (And also, it helps that this one place is just a hop, skip and jump away!) Join the dots across the city from day to night - AND it only costs £25! If you're lucky enough to finish exams by 23rd May, we're thinking this is a pretty decent blowout treat. Tickets are still available here.

Saint Raymond (he Wants You to know that he'll be there)
Scottish synth-pop band Prides. We had a chat to Stewart last year and he was pretty cool.
