Dot To Dot booker, Anton Lockwood, said of this year's line-up, "With this announcement we're pleased to welcome some exceptional artists to Dot To Dot. Augustines are long-time friends of DHP, and their heartfelt songs are sure to prompt many a singalong, and perhaps even raise a tear or two. Dua Lipa is one of the most exciting new talents to emerge in the last few months, her sassy pop-noir, and riveting stage presence is going take her to be a superstar sooner rather than later, so we’re delighted to be able to have her come and play for us. Of course, as ever with Dot To Dot, we have a list of handpicked new artists, many of which will become your new favourites, so we urge everyone to check them out, and come down to the festival early to enjoy the UK’s finest new music event!"
Tickets, which give access to the entire bill across all the venues, in each respective city, are priced at £11 Manchester, £25 Bristol, or Nottingham.
Manchester opens the event on Friday, Bristol hosts the event on the Saturday, with it then held the day after in Nottingham.
