Festival organiser, Ben Robinson, said: “bluedot is a truly spectacular event held in an even more spectacular location and being nominated for ‘Best Medium Festival’ is a real real testament to everyone involved.

We are yet to win a UK Festival Award and winning Best Medium would be truly incredible. We’d be delighted if people could take five minutes out of their day to vote!

We have an amazing bill for 2019, the best yet. It’s not just the headline artists that will impress, we’ve really raised the bar with our science, arts, culture, wellbeing and food content and have some very exciting announcements in the coming months. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to bluedot for another weekend of discovery”

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings, attendees can again expect an ultra-special weekend of talent from across the musical, scientific, literary and arts communities with five distinct arenas featuring cosmic culture, talks, screenings, lectures, comedy and debates, a vast spectrum of hands-on activities and much more.
