Dot To Dot, the UKs only tri-city traveling festival returns for 2012 announcing its first salvo of must-see artists.
Renowned in its seven year history for offering guaranteed crowd-pleasing bands alongside the first live glimpses of some of today’s biggest acts, which have included double Brits winner Ed Sheeran, The xx, Florence & The Machine, The Naked and Famous, Friendly Fires, Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons, this year’s multi-venue event will take place across the Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend, visiting Bristol on June 2nd, Nottingham on June 3rd, making its triumphant finale in Manchester on June 4th.

Dot To Dot Organiser Anton Lockwood commented: “More than ever Dot To Dot 2012 will see a great line up of exciting new music alongside the hottest live acts at the moment. Our first announcement of indie titans The Drums and fast rising rockers Pulled Apart by Horses sets the tone for Bristol, Nottingham and Manchester to each have a great day of fresh and exciting music.”

Kicking off this year’s line-up are one of the biggest success stories of recent years, The Drums.
Previous recipients of the NME’s coveted Philip Hall Radar Award, their eponymous debut album and follow up, Portamento, have singled them out as one of the most acclaimed bands around, making them a sure-fire hit for Dot To Dot 2012.

Adding a fiery edge to proceedings, co-headliners Pulled Apart By Horses will be showcasing their incendiary live show across Dot To Dot’s three home cities this year. With their second album, Tough Love cementing their reputation as one of the UKs most essential bands, the Leeds post-hardcore four-piece have been described by the Observer as ‘the best live band in Britain’ so they’re certain to captivate the crowds.
