Taking place between the 7th and 9th of July at Jodrell Bank, bluedot fuses music, arts and culture and has revealed two surprise special guests for this years festival including brand new Mancunian group Rogue Emperor and pioneering dance act, Leftfield.
The Cheshire observatory will play host to this three-day festival of discovery that fuses a complex mix of artists, speakers, scientists and performers into an event unlike any on earth.
bluedot – the unique festival that fuses music, arts and culture – has revealed two surprise special guests for this years festival including brand new Mancunian group Rogue Emperor and pioneering dance act, Leftfield – presented by Amazon Music – who will be opening the Orbit stage at 6pm on Friday’s opening night.
Opening the Orbit stafe at 6pm on Friday’s opening night, Leftfield are one of electronic music’s all time greatest acts, having just recently released Leftism 22, a very special reissue of their seminal debut album.
‘Leftism’ remains one of the defining statements of dance music, a gloriously inter-woven bombardment of musical styles and immaculate grooves, nominated for a Mercury prize and later voted in the top ten greatest albums of all time by readers of Q magazine.
The festival is also proud to announce yet another world first with an exclusive performance by Rogue Emperor, a collaboration between ex Elbow drummer Richard Jupp and Martin Rebelski, Doves keyboard player.
The pair are joined by 1,2,3,4’s guitarist Mike TV – who can often be found backing Badly Drawn Boy live – and Ollie Collins the renowned session bassist. Together the four-piece have years of live and studio work between them.
Full weekend camping tickets are now on sale and start from £159 outright cost or £59 for an individual day ticket.
