Helena Hauff and Joy Orbison added to Bluedot Festival’s 2018 line-up

The Cheshire festival has added a roster of names to its 2018 line-up.

Former Crack cover star Helena Hauff joins the bill as part of inner city electronic’s takeover at the four-day event. Elsewhere on the electronic programme, Bugged Out will host Joy Orbison, Not Waving, Lemmy Ashton and Holly Lester.

Furthermore, The Radiophonic Workshop is set to celebrate its 60th anniversary with a live set, featuring visuals from their six-decade career, and a residency at the festival.

The newly announced acts join Slowdive, Nabihah Iqbal and Future Islands on the programme.

Bluedot will stage its upcoming edition at Jodrell Bank Observatory on 19-22 July – home to the Lovell telescope. Celebrating the intersection of science and sound, the festival will combine live science experiments with immersive art and music. Extending beyond the remit of music, there’ll be talks from thinkers and scientists on topics such as outer space and climate change.
