Dot To Dot is a metropolitan festival taking place in Bristol on Saturday and Nottingham on Sunday. We take a full line up of the hottest performers around, on tour with us from city to city over the weekend.

Being a multi-venue metropolitan festival means that we get to make use of the best venues across both cities, filling their stages all day with exciting artists. To get into all these venues (age restrictions may apply) you’ll just need one wristband, which you can get at the start of the day by visiting our Wristband Exchange and getting your e-ticket scanned for a wristband.

As venue capacities are regulated, we advise that if you are keen to see a particular band you make sure to get to the stage with plenty of time to spare, to avoid disappointment.

Dot To Dot Festival 2023 takes place 25-26th May 2024.

We’re a multi-venue festival, and as that names suggests, the festival takes place in multiple venues across Bristol on the Saturday and Nottingham on the Sunday. We have bands on throughout the day across many stages, and one wristband gets you into all of them! Find out more on our Locations Page.

Dot To Dot is a 14+ festival, however some Dot To Dot venues will be 18+ on the day. Please keep an eye on our social channels for up to date information on any age restrictions.
