Bank Holiday’s were made for this. Directing over 100 of the best artists on the new musical compass to Nottingham, Dot To Dot Festival has once again assembled a line-up that’s simply unmissable. Their second year of hosting across three city’s finest soundsystems brings them near-enough/worth the trip with local indie punk PINS, teen rockers Sundara Karma and anthemic soundscapists Amber Run among the bill-toppers. From breathy psych sorcery with Josefin Öhrn to gritty rock singalongs with Cherry Glazerr, the umpteen venues of acts will be strumming, jiving, raving and romping through over 10 hours of Bank Holiday hair-raising. From acoustic guitarman Robbie Cavanagh to Led Zep reincarnation The Bear Around Your Neck, the strength of the local roster serves as a reminder of the great waves rippling through the city’s sonic core. The countdown from ellipsis to joined up musical dots is heating up.

Sun 28 May, Various venues Nottingham. 11am – 4am £12
