Tickets are on sale from 10am today, Friday 28th October, for the second bluedot taking place from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th July 2017 at Jodrell Bank, the Cheshire observatory at the cutting edge of humanity’s quest for knowledge. After the inaugural year last year Bluedot promises another three-day festival of discovery that promises to fuse a complex mix of artists, speakers, scientists and performers into an event unlike any on earth, all in the shadow of the towering Lovell telescope.
There are no acts confirmed yet for 2017. A full science and culture programme will be announced in the coming weeks but attendees can expect an incredible array of talent from across the scientific, literary and arts communities with five distinct arenas featuring space orchestras, talks, screenings of films, lectures, comedy and debates and a vast spectrum of hands-on activities including the Luminarium, art installations, robot workshops, a planetarium, the Galaxy Garden, pulsar hunting, graphene making classes and much more.
Prices start at £129 for adult weekend tickets, including camping.
A Teen Ticket (aged 11-15 Years) with camping ticket is priced at £79.
A Children's (aged 6-10 years)weekend ticket is priced at £27.50 (under 5's get in for free!).
There is also a 9 month payment plan, where after the first instalment of £16 + booking fees the remaining face value payments for a weekend with camping ticket, teen or child ticket can be paid for over the next 8 months.
Full access to the magnificent Discovery centre is included with each ticket, and offers a chance to find out more about the mind-blowing research happening at Jodrell Bank. Explore the wonders of the universe and find out for yourself why stargazing has enjoyed a massive resurgence in the past few years.
With over 10 stages of memorable music and cultural encounters, all spread across three days and nights in the fields, it's time to celebrate the summer and another day on bluedot.
