A UNIQUE WEEKEND OF

MUSIC · SCIENCE · COSMIC CULTURE · FAMILY FUN

revealed, Spring 2023

EXPLORE BLUEDOT

Bluedot 2022’s unique combination of music, science, arts, culture and family fun saw us host music headliners Björk and The Hallé, Mogwai and Metronomy, Groove Armada and Hannah Peel & Paraorchestra, iconic science speakers including Tim Peake, Libby Jackson and Brian Cox, cultural icons including Helen Pankhurst, Delia Derbyshire Day and Rough Trade Books and family fun from Big Fish Little Fish, Brainiac Live, Clangers and much, much more. Bluedot 2022’s line-up was our most diverse and most varied line-up to date, with a broader range of non-music activity than any previous year, record crowds for science and culture names, and a higher proportion of female/non-binary and non-white performers than ever before.

‘A triumphant return… myriad of eclectic delights and musical highlights’ – BBC

‘A unique festival in which science and music go hand-in-hand, and where homemade spacesuits are as plentiful as band T-shirts’ – The Guardian

★★★★ The Guardian · ★★★★★ Manchester Evening News · ★★★★ The Times
