Kicking of a brand new four-day format, we’ll be opening our doors on the Thursday with the phenomenal TheBlue Planet in Concert performed by The Hallé Orchestra. The show combines live music against a backdrop of remarkable footage from the original The Blue Planet 2001 television series produced by the acclaimed BBC Natural History Unit.
Conducted by the composer, the Hallé will perform the internationally critically acclaimed concert version of the original The Blue Planet, promising a unique and awe-inspiring spectacle in HD, exploring the vast oceans on our pale blue dot, and the challenges we face for the future.
Said festival director, Ben Robinson: “Heading into our third year we really wanted to go above and beyond and we’re absolutely delighted to announce The Blue Planet in Concert for our new Thursday slot.
“Our mission is to not only erode the boundaries between science, culture, art and technology but to also highlight the beauty and fragility of our planet Earth, and what a better way to achieve this by opening proceedings with such a remarkable and enlightening spectacle. It’s going to be truly incredible and a real festival highlight. We can’t wait!”
We are thrilled to announce that we have introduced a new, Thursday night ticket for Bluedot festival. For those wishing to experience just our Thursday event and not the weekend, tickets will be £35. Car parking and campsites will open at 12 noon, with entertainment from 6pm until 11pm.
For those who choose to extend their Bluedot festival experience and join us early, an additional Thursday evening ticket with a spectacular headline show will be available for just £29 for weekend campers.
