Immerse yourself in a weekend of music, science and art

Bluedot Festival returns to Macclesfield's Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre to mark 50 years since the moon landing, once again laying on a weekend of music, art and science underneath the shadow of the imposing Lovell Telescope.

Headlining Bluedot 2019 will be none other than Kraftwerk, who will be bringing their iconic 3D show to the festival. The perfect headliner given the festival's exploration of the relationship between music and science, Kraftwerk's immersive experience will no doubt send minds into outer space.

Elsewhere festival-goers will also find an insightful programme of live science experiments, expert talks and immersive artworks, such as robot workshops, a planetarium and pulsar hunting, all set out across five unique arenas.
