Taking place 7-9 July, bluedot – the unique festival at Jodrell Bank Observatory that fuses music, arts and culture – has today announced a fourth wave of artists to join its already impressive bill and released day tickets for sale.

Singer-songwriter and producer, Astronomyy is a welcome addition to the festival. Known for his atmospheric chillwave and R&B-influenced indie electronic pop his performance is definitely not to be missed.

Following rave reviews from the debut of his studio album, ‘The Pace of the Passing’, Bombay Bicycle Club’s Bassist Ed Nash’s solo venture, Toothless also joins the eclectic bill and promises to create a mixture of wistful acoustic melodies, swelling electronic instrumentals and throbbing basslines .

London due, Ten Fé have also been added to the bill on Sunday, to deliver a set of indie pop and lively guitar that spans across genres and styles.

Elsewhere on the line-up include South London three-piece, Virginia Wing, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation, DJ Woody, Diabel Cissokho, Diving Station, Loux, Atlar Hanglands, Aeva, Animal Noise and Benjamin William Pike.

Said festival director Ben Robinson: We couldn’t be happier with the response that this year’s festival has received and we’re delighted to announce day tickets are now on sale and to also welcome some fantastic additions to an already stellar line-up.”

“We’ve raised the bar this year across the music, arts and culture spectrum and with more great acts and exciting announcements still to come, we’re confident this will be the best year yet!”

The new acts join headliners Orbital, Pixies and Alt J, along with other internationally renowned acts including Soulwax, Ezra Furman and The Boyfriends, Warpaint, Andrew Weatherall, Goldfrapp, Vitalic, Hawkwind, Mr Scruff and many, many more.

Taking place 7-9 July at Jodrell Bank, the Cheshire observatory at the cutting edge of humanity’s quest for knowledge, bluedot is a three-day festival of discovery that fuses a complex mix of artists, speakers, scientists and performers into an event unlike any on earth.

As well as an incredible live and electronic programme, In the hands-on Star Field and Planet Field, festival-goers will be able to take part in live experiments and science discussions on topics ranging from the brain to bees, glaciers to the galaxy’s magnetic field.  More details, including some amazing exhibitions and a family programme designed for all ages, will be announced in the coming weeks.
