Dot to Dot Festival has become one of the UK’s premier music events showcasing both up and coming talent as well as established artists.
Dot to Dot Festival will take place over the weekend of May 27 – 29 in Manchester, Bristol, and Nottingham. Over recent years, the festival has highlighted acts such as Mumford & Sons, Florence & The Machine and Jake Bugg to name but a few. With an overwhelming amount of talent on display, here at National Rock Review, we give you our picks for the festival this year.
The Temper Trap
It has been four years since The Temper Trap’s self-titled last album. Following the departure of lead guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto in 2013, the band is getting ready to release their eagerly anticipated third album,Â Thick As Thieves, in June.
National Rock Review recently caught Sundara Karma whilst on tour with Nothing But Thieves, and they are not to be missed. Their latest single conjures up images of early Arcade Fire.
One of the more established artists on the bill, US rockers the Augustines are known for their ability to interact with fans and their rather intense concerts. The band’s new album, This Is Your Life, comes out on June 10.
The Manchester-based four-piece post-punk outfit, Spring King, recently caught our attention following their appearance on Later With Jools Holland. The band is sure to be one of the standout acts of the festival
Award-winning Australian quintet The Rubens recently unveiled the comedic video for â€˜Cut Me Looseâ€™. The band is currently in the UK in support of their debut album Hoops, released earlier this year.
The Hunna are getting ready to release their debut album, 100, on the August 28. The Hertfordshire four-piece have established themselves recently as one of the music industry’s hottest emerging artists.
