bluedot 2020 headliners announced…

In just over six months, from 23 – 26 July, we’ll welcome over 30,000 people to Jodrell Bank once again to enjoy our award-winning, star-struck festival of discovery, bluedot. In honour of the festival’s fifth anniversary, we’ve gone to infinity and beyond to find the most inspiring combination of music, cosmic culture and science, and are excited to start sharing the 2020 line up.

The ground-breaking dance duo Groove Armada will headline the main stage on Friday night, followed by indie-electro giants Metronomy on Saturday. Sunday will see the legendary singer-songwriter Björk collaborate with the Hallé Orchestra in an unmissable festival finale featuring bespoke projections on to the Lovell telescope.

Other confirmed music acts include Róisín Murphy, 808 State, Tangerine Dream, Anna Meredith, Henge, Homoelectric, and Spiritualized.

The highly anticipated science line up will follow in the next few weeks, but we couldn’t help but share the news that astronaut Tim Peake will be speaking at the festival! The first British ESA astronaut to visit the International Space Station will entertain with his stories from Mission Principia, where audiences will hear about his spacewalk to fix the station’s power supply and his record-breaking achievement to become the first man to run a marathon in space.

While more details will follow, you can certainly look forward to exploring another packed programme across our themes of Astrophysics, Environmentalism, The Exploration of Space, Futurology and more…

Our ever-popular family programme of science shows, exhibitions, stargazing, and workshops will be back too, bringing the festival experience to life for both the young, and young at heart.

See you there!

Weekend tickets will be on public sale from 10am Friday 14th February. Click here to find out more…
