It’s Sunday, Spring Bank Holiday Weekend. What better way to spent it than turn up to an indie music festival in the midst of Nottingham City Centre. The best thing about this festival is the urban setting. All the venues are fairly close together and are incredibly varied, from the DIY intimacy of the upstairs stage of Spanky Van Dykes to the arty, open-spaces of the Rough Trade Record Store. Also, unlike the big, wide open spaces of most countryside music festivals in which the impact of the music can get a little bit lost, you are always close to the action at Dot to Dot.
Nottingham’s premier inner city music festival is now less than 5 days away. With more venues and acts playing than ever before, we provide a few suggestions of acts to try and see.
Francisco The Man are mainly known for their radio hit ‘Big Ideas’, and they have made several appearances in the UK recently, including Dot To Dot earlier this year, at the very same venue. Having missed their previous appearance, we definately didn’t want to miss this one.
