Dot To Dot at The Bodega 2018

Dot To Dot Festival is known as one of the UK’s leading festivals for discovering new artists. Here at The Bodega, we love championing those upcoming artists and showcasing some of the best new music before it blows up. With the big day fast approaching, we’ve had a look at the artists that will be entering our doors on 27th May. There may be some names on this list that you know and some that you’re not so familiar with but we’re sure your new favourite band could be here.
