Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood, of DHP Family, said: "After our record breaking festival in 2016 we are so excited to bring the festival back to Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham this year! We are always proud to see so many previous Dot To Dot artists become huge successes, with Sundara Karma working their way up the ranks to headline this year’s event. We pride ourselves on finding & nurturing new artists, we can’t wait to see the stars of the future playing in small venues this year before their big breaks. This first announcement is only the tip of the iceberg, and there are loads more phenomenal performers still to be announced across multiple venues very soon!"
Tickets are on sale, priced at £12 for the day at any one of the three locations, which give access to the entire bill across all the venues in that location.
