20-23 July 2023 Jodrell Bank Observatory

VIP VILLAGE

Welcome to the home of relaxation at bluedot, close to the Lovell Stage and beneath the iconic Lovell Telescope. With an array of award-winning restaurants and chefs joining us for the weekend, alongside a host of VIP perks, the new bluedot VIP Village is your spot to kick-back and recharge. Access exclusive food and drink concessions, charge your phone and grab a free coffee – what’s not to love?

Under 16s can enter the VIP Village for free using their existing festival wristband.

The 2023 VIP Village continues to raise money for EatWell, who partner with organisations across Greater Manchester – including a collective of award-winning restaurants and food brands – to support people sidelined by poverty by delivering up to 1,000 meals every week. Our partnership with EatWell at bluedot 2022 raised enough to provide 5,000 free meals to Manchester’s homeless community! Find out more about EatWell and donate here. A percentage of all VIP tickets, plus food and drink in the VIP Village, will go direct to support EatWell’s work. We’re also excited to be working with all food traders and bars across the festival to add £2 ‘Meals for Manchester’ ghost items to their menus, with 100% of these sales going to EatWell. Find out more about these here.

Fundraising efforts by Eat Well MCR, including the restaurants and chefs in their collective, help to deliver up to 1,000 meals a week, partnering with organisations in Greater Manchester that support people sidelined by poverty.
