A Weekend in Outer Space!

As this summer’s bluedot was postponed to 2021 in response to the coronavirus outbreak, we’re delighted to be launching A Weekend in Outer Space on the orginal festival dates of 24-26 July 2020.

The virtual event will take the form of a free mini festival broadcasting live online and raising funds for Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.

Tune is from this Friday for our unique blend of science, music and cosmic culture. Expect talks, panel discussions, DJ sets and archive footage from festivals past. Highlights include Elbow, Orbital, Brian Cox, Jim Al-Khalili, a special 42nd anniversary celebration of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and of course, festival favourites, The Clangers!

Find out more, and join us and the rest of the bluedot community, online here…

See you in outer space!
