Kojey Radical and Mary Anne Hobbs join Bluedot Festival line-up

Bluedot Festival has revealed new additions and day splits for its forthcoming edition, set to take place on 21-24 July.

The music, science and culture event, which is staged at Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire, has added Kojey Radical, Warmduscher and Mary Anne Hobbs to the bill. Tim Peake and Brainiac Live have also been announced for the festival’s science programme.

They’ll join previously announced headliners Groove Armada, Metronomy, Hannah Peel and Mogwai at the event. Björk – who is set to perform a festival exclusive with the Hallé Orchestra – will headline the Sunday evening. The line-up also features India Jordan, Sofia Kourtesis, Kelly Lee Owens, Squarepusher and more.

Elsewhere, this year’s edition will also feature a new VIP Village with a selection of award-winning restaurants and food vendors. The area will raise funds for Eat Well MCR, a charity dedicated to providing meals for people sidelined by poverty.

Bluedot Festival takes place on 21-24 July. Visit the festival’s site for tickets and further line-up information. We recently reviewed Kojey Radical’s much-anticipated debut album, Reason to Smile. Read the review here.
