5 Must See Acts – Dot to Dot Nottingham (2017)

#FestivalPreview Our ‘5 Must See Acts’ playing at Dot 2 Dot Festival in Nottingham

The third and final day of Dot 2 Dot previews and this time we’re going the extra mile and giving you “5 Must See Acts”. There are over 150 acts listed for the Nottingham leg of the festival which takes place on Sunday 28 May. Yep, you’ve guessed it, we listened to the lot. Here’s our selection.

Luke Peter Foster (@LukePeterFoster)

Yes we did do a review of his EP It’s Even When It Pours earlier in the week, and boy are we pleased to see that he’s bringing his mellow spoken word vibes to Nottingham.

Where: The Ned Ludd, 27 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DA
Showtime: Sunday 28 May @ 17:00

Cherry Hex & The Dream Church (@CHandtheDC)

Eerie, minimal electro-pop fronted with ever so slightly sultry vocals. Oh, and a xylophone.

Where: Rough Trade, 5 Broad Street, Nottingham, NG1 3AJ
Showtime: Sunday 28 May @ 17:00

Three Body Trio (@ThreeBodyTrio)

Stuttering beats, dub-style production and oh so much groove. If Dilla and Spacek had linked up more and invited Flying Lotus along to the party, it may have sounded like this.

Where: Malt Cross, 16 St James’s Street, Nottingham NG1 6FG
Showtime: Sunday 28 May @ 18:00

Patawawa (@patawawa)

Gloriously infectious disco-pop from this Matlock trio. You won’t fail to smile during their set.

Where: The Orange Tree, 38 Shakespeare Street, Nottingham, NG1 4FQ
Showtime: Sunday 28 May @ 18:00

Shelter Point (@_shelterpoint)

Joining the dots between dreams and nightmares through music that has both glass like delicacy and bass sounds that are bouncier than a trampoline.

Where: Rough Trade, 5 Broad Street, Nottingham, NG1 3AJ
Showtime: Sunday 28 May @ 22:00

Nottingham definitely looks to be offering up something different and with these guys all on the roster it’s sure to be a great closing day to Dot 2 Dot. As always, get out and support this awesome new music in all its live glory.
