Bluedot Festival returns this summer, marking the festival’s first instalment since 2019.

Heading back to its incredibly unique and breathtaking setting of Jodrell Bank observatory, the festival makes its return in supreme style, with an incredible lineup of world-renowned names now confirmed.

Topping the bill are Björk, Groove Armada, Mogwai and Metronomy, as four days of music transform the scientific hotspot between 21-24 July.

Björk’s exclusive set will round off the weekend with a uniquely commissioned performance alongside Manchester’s owen Hallé Orchestra, featuring showstopping bespoke projections upon the Lovell Telescope.

Also joining will be the likes of Working Men’s Club, Tim Burgess, Kelly Lee Owens, Anna Meredith and A Certain Ratio.

See the full lineup below.

Taking to Twitter earlier, the festival promised that this would be a golden new era for the beloved event: “What you are about to see is our first launch of a new Bluedot. A fresh start. A chance for us to explore everything you love about Bluedot—to go right back to the foundations of this incredible, unique concept and return with our most exciting and diverse lineup yet.”

Tickets go on sale Fri 4 Feb at 10am. For more info, visit the Bluedot website.
