Doves / LCD Soundsystem / Massive Attack or Bjork

All of those are a great shout, wouldnt disagree (or be disappointed) with any of them, and they all seem to fit into the vibe of the festival. Maybe a bit strong to have three of those. Might also add Elbow into the frame as well, having payed Jodrell Bank before and also being from Manx

Bjork I'd say is probably a no, considering she's already on an arena tour at the moment, her last UK festival show wasn't great and didn't sell well and it'll be even further away from an album cycle for her.

Tame Impala are out as their London show is a UK exclusive.

Mogwai would be great but they're definitely subs rather than headliners.

Portishead would be amazing but Surely there’s no chance. They’ve played like one show in about ten years and that was at Glastonbury. Also Geoff has Beak now. Who I would love to see at Bluedot!

 

i see Iggy POP has just been announced at  all points east. That makes him possible. 

I would be very happy with LCD Soundsystem/  Pet Shop Boys / Massive Attack.

Are LCD rumoured to be touring? Would love those 3, but haven't heard anything about LCD but may have missed it.

Yes pet shop boys would be so good ! But maybe the year after  , you’re right doubt they would do another Manchester date so close . 

Still holding out for the LCD dream ! Can we have Al Doyle can put in a word please. And get despacio in the tent too

Aphex twin would be another awesome shout , especially with visuals up on the telescope - imagine !!! 

Realistically - fourtet ? He was headlining green man. 

When do we usually get announcement? We need a bluedot thingy

This year's was announced third week in January. There's no indication that LCD are active this year so I wouldn't get your hopes up on that one.

Most likely for me at the moment are Massive Attack, Underworld, Four Tet or Flaming Lips again – going off who's doing festivals next year and the kind of acts Blue Dot books.

Not convinced about Pet Shop Boys as they're doing their own Manchester headline barely two months beforehand and it won't have sold out by the time Blue Dot goes on sale. It'd be a perfect booking but I'd be surprised with that timing.

Pretty sure Pixies played Manchester Castlefield very near to them playing BlueDot. So it is done.
