Dot To Dot 2011 is shaping up to be the tri-city festival’s finest outing yet with a wealth of new talent joining the bill.

With a heavy line-up including Hurts, We Are Scientists, The Naked And Famous, The Joy Formidable, Ed Sheeran, Darwin Deez, Dananananaykroyd and many more confirmed to travel between Bristol, Nottingham and Manchester from May 28th – 30th.

Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood said: “This is what Dot To Dot is all about. The exciting new bands announced add to a strong line up of established acts (and the odd new one we’ve sneaked out already).
