Although it’s pretty early to be thinking about festivals, it might be worth not just pencilling in the dates for 2017’s Dot To Dot, but buying a ticket as well. The nice guys at Dot To Dot are offering half-price early-bird tickets, and as there’s probably going to be a load of acts on the bill you love, you might as well invest now.

For anyone who hasn’t been before, the festival takes place in on the May Bank holiday every year (on the 27th May this year FYI), and has venues all over the city opening their doors to ticket holders. It combines all the fun of a normal festival, but without the mud or rain or bad sound systems. Previous years have seen the likes of Peace, Mystery Jets and Lucy Rose headline, whilst giving bands like Wolf Alice, HindsĀ and Courtney BarnettĀ a taste of the UK festival circuit.
