Boldly going where no festival has gone before…

Jean-Michel Jarre, Underworld and Caribou will be headlining a new festival that’s set to take place in the towering shadow of the Lovell radio telescope at Jodrell Bank, Cheshire.

The festival promises an all-star line-up across three days alongside a host of speakers, scientists and performers.

Set to play the three-day festival are electro-rock darlings Everything Everything, art-rock archivists Public Service Broadcasting, neo-psychedelic titans Mercury Rev, folk experimentalist Steve Mason, post math-rock instrumentalists 65daysofstatic, genre-transcending indie rockers British Sea Power and Californian space-rock adventurers Moon Duo.

The late-night electronic line-up promises to be equally enthralling including Erol Alkan and Richard Norris’ electro-house alter egos Beyond the Wizards Sleeve, Hessle Audio founder Ben UFO and turntable maestro DJ Yoda with many more still to be announced.

A special treat for festival goers, and science fans alike, will be a live recording of Radio 4’s The Infinite Monkey Cage with Prof. Brian Cox and Robin Ince. 

Professor Tim O’Brien, Associate Director of Jodrell Bank and together with Professor Teresa Anderson, one of the festival’s science directors, said: “bluedot is going to be special. We want to blow people’s minds with some amazing music and some incredible ideas – from the Big Bang to black holes, AI to climate change, and loads more.

Festival director Ben Robinson, said: “We have a lot more still to announce including our full science and culture programme and some more big name acts that we feel will really fit the ethos of what we are trying to achieve with bluedot – a forum where music, science and the arts can really come together.”
