More acts confirmed for Dot To Dot 2014 and headliners announced for Splendour
Dot to Dot Festival has announced its next wave of acts, following on from the confirmation of headliners Peace, plus Real Estate, Courtney Barnett and more.
New additions arrive in the form of brothers Drenge. There’s also the arrival of Velvet Underground tribute band The Pizza Underground.
Jaws, Hudson Taylor, Luke Sital-Singh, Amber Run, The Heartbreaks and Lauren Aquilina are amongst the list of new names.
Dot to Dot 2014 takes place from the 23rd-25th of May in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham. More acts are yet to be announced.
Singer songwriter and no.1 artist Tom Odell and Madchester legends the Happy Mondays will headline this year’s Splendour festival held at Wollaton Park in Nottingham.
Odell’s appearance at Splendour on Saturday 19 July in front of up to 20,000 people will be his biggest headline performance to date. It continues his rapid rise from unknown a couple of years ago to national radio favourite, Brits award-winner and chart-topper with his debut album ‘Long Way Down’ and hit singles ‘Another love’, ‘Grow old with me’, ‘I know’, and ‘Hold me’.
The Happy Mondays are set to continue their revival following critical acclaim for the reunited original line up’s live shows celebrating the 25th anniversary of their classic ‘Bummed’ album. Famed for the party atmosphere of their shows, dancer Bez will take time out from campaigning to become an elected, independent MP and lead the band through a set including hits such as ‘Wrote for Luck’, ‘Step On’ and ‘Hallelujah’.
On the Confetti Stage, The Boomtown Rats (four original members including Bob Geldof) will be headlining. Sheffield indie act Reverend & The Makers will also be playing Confetti Stage.
Tickets for Splendour are onsale now and start at just £15. More than 30 top acts playing across three stages to be announced in the next few weeks.
