Bluedot Festival is a British festival of music, art and discovery, held each summer at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre in Macclesfield. The Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre is an educational observatory museum with science exhibits and the Lovell Radio Telescope. The centre is part of the University of Manchester.

Returning in 2023, Bluedot Festival will once again take up residency against the stunning backdrop of the Lovell Radio Telescope, curating a weekend of music from across the indie and alternative spectrum.

And beyond the music, Bluedot Festival’s weekend of discovery includes a range of live science experiments, expert talks and immersive artworks, encouraging festival-goers to ask questions and stimulate their minds in the company of some of science’s finest brains.
