An intergalactic
festival of music,
science and the
exploration
of space

Bluedot is a brand new festival of discovery at Jodrell Bank, the iconic observatory and heart of our quest for knowledge of the cosmos. Bluedot invites you to camp out under the stars, and to explore a stellar programme of music, science, arts, technology, culture, food and film. 

Brought to you by the team behind Live From Jodrell Bank. Bluedot’s mission is to entertain and inspire through a full weekend of ground breaking encounters, including performances, DJ sets, comedy, talks, workshops and live experiments.
