Winner of 'Best Metropolitan Festival 2013' at the UK Festival Awards, Dot To Dot Festival is established
as the UKs premier festival for unearthing the hottest new talent around, alongside established acts from
all over the globe. 2015 marks the festival's 10th year and will see it returning to Manchester, Bristol and
Nottingham from the 22nd to 24th May. Dot To Dot's ever eclectic line-up is set to make this landmark year
one of the biggest and best in the festival's history. Already confirmed so far is Nottingham's latest
success story Saint Raymond, critically acclaimed singer songwriter Rae Morris, Irish pop folk duo Hudson
Taylor and Brighton surf-psych three piece The Wytches.
Kicking off the second announcement, we're delighted to welcome Best Coast to the bill for this years Dot
To Dot. The LA two-piece comprised of Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno first found success with their
lo-fi surf pop debut Crazy For You and have recently released details of their forthcoming third full length
Having played the festival back in 2013, it's our pleasure to bring back Birmingham bohemians Swim
Deep. With their sophomore album due later this year and its first single 'To My Brother' seamlessly
incorporating a new, unexpected influence of acid house to their dreamy indie anthems, theirs is surely a
set to keep a close eye on.
Joining them are the much-lauded Fat White Family, winners of the NME Radar Award in 2014. Sitting
musically somewhere in between the lo-fi jangles of The Fall and the more visceral howls of The Birthday
Party, the band have built a fearsome reputation for their wild, unpredictable live performances.
Anthemic Glaswegian trio Prides are also welcomed to this year's bill. They wowed a 40,000 strong crowd
at the closing of the ceremony the Commonwealth games last year with their nostalgic take on synth-pop
and will undoubtedly take on the D2D crowd with the same fervour.
Further additions include Alfie Connor, The Amazons, Delamere, Flesh, Francisco The Man, The Griswolds,
Holy Holy, Laurel, Man Made, Model Aeroplanes, Neon Waltz, Pixel Fix, REMI, Sugarmen, VANT and
Walking on Cars.
For the uninitiated, Dot to Dot is all about bringing the best new music to some of the most forwardthinking
venues in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham. One wristband gains you access to 14 hours of
music across multiple stages around your city of choice. Always progressing, the Northern Quarter will
this year host Dot to Dot Manchester. Considered the creative quarter of the North West, the area is
synonymous with arts and culture and its high concentration of independent venues will be sure to
showcase the hottest new artists around (Manchester Cathedral, Night&Day, Ruby Lounge, Soup Kitchen, Gullivers, The Castle Hotel, Cord, Methodist Hall, Mint House, Kraak, Roadhouse, The Whiskey House and Kosmonault.

Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood (of DHP Family) said: 'Incorporating the visceral excitement of Fat White Family, the harmonies of Best Coast and the tunes of Swim Deep, along with many more of the most thrilling current artists, I'm very happy to welcome this latest addition to the 10th year of Dot to Dot. We are by no means finished though. Watch this space for more!"
