Latest update from Bluedot:

#BD17 was a cornucopia of discovery, hosting thought-provoking DotTalks and sensational science, alongside immersive art, cosmic comedy, and music – not forgetting stellar headline sets from PIXIES, Orbital and alt-J beneath the Lovell Telescope.

Bluedot Festival

From making albums to be consumed in virtual reality and turning her songs into video games, Björk has embraced innovation throughout her musical career.

We explore how she has harnessed technology to push pop music forward.'s-instrumental-innovations

Loads more festivals have bit the dust, think an announcement will be sooner rather then later. 2021 will be immense , will be gutted for this year but will get over it.

Yeah, surprised it hasn't been cancelled or delayed. Even when this pandemic settles down it will still be some time before people have the confidence to attend events like this in the future unfortunately.

Friday night in with BC Camplight 💙 ...

Comment on Facebook

You can support the band during these strange times on their GoFundMe here –

You can pre-order the forthcoming BC Camplight album here –

This is one of our favourites!

Cheers from bluedot!

Here's a GoFundMe for Brian and the band, giving you the opportunity to support them during these strange times –

We are NHS workers, finished for the day, feet up with a G and T and our dog Colin. This sort of thing really helps!

Have a ticket for your Manchester Ritz show - but Jarv Is have re-scheduled their Liverpool date to the same day your playing. Dilemma!

We totally love your show today

Soooool good. Reminds me of when saw you in the Hare n Hounds in Brum with my lovely wife last year. We're now self isolating apart 😭😍

We’re drinking beer and eating Cadbury’s creme eggs and I’m worrying that my dog didn’t have a dump on her second walk of the day so she’ll want to get up at the crack of dawn in the morning 😣

Our ten year old son says you’re very good for just one person...

Saw you in Clitheroe and you and your band were amazing! Made our whole weekend. It was joyous. 😍 and as if that wasn’t enough, our dog is called Frankie too. Please will you play Billy Joel Longest Time and I’ll be your best friend forever xx

Set up a mini pub in back garden today- realised it’s missing some form of entertainment. Fancy popping around? You provide the music, I’ll keep the gin flowing😁

Peace n love and health .. and some increased wealth ... Just bought your album.. good luck and keep safe .. c u on the other Corona side of things

Jools is booking you for Later... as we speak 😉

Say hi to the logistics firms transporting everything about

Hey Brian. We are loving the Michael McDonald x Manchester loves you ❤️

This is like having a really talented friend round to entertain - cheers!

We can hear you loud and clear Brian... can you play when I think of my dog tonight?

I might wish it on Pritti Patel, but that’s ok, she’s not human!

❤️we are loving this in Portland UK:)

Missing Manchester gigs already but watching in Warrington, thank you so much!! x

hi, from Brighton, all good loud and clear

Life doesn’t need to be as frantic as we make it

Puppy is loving it!!

  1. Orbital doing the beautiful Halcyon On & On, Vitalic being downright dutty at 2am, Richard Herring in the comedy tent, and DJ Yoda closing the festival with the History of Gaming was blindingly good. 😁

  2. Highlight was definitely stumbling into the beginning of Soulwax’s set. Having never heard of them before, somehow, I had no idea what I was in for. It was a transformative musical experience and I’ve listened to Missing Wires at least once every day since!

  3. I was very pleased to see the late announcement of leftfield but was looking forward to Orbital and Pixies neither disappointed but Soulwax were the ones to hit it out of the park for me in the end…
