Five Must See Acts at Dot To Dot Festival 2015

22 May 15 words: Paul Klotschkow
Now in its tenth year of bringing the best in up-and-coming musical talent to Nottingham, the tri-city festival is celebrating with its biggest line-up yet
Dot To Dor Festival 2015

PINS (16:15 - 16:45, Nottingham Trent Uni)
Getting ready to release their second LP, expect spiky indie-pop underpinned by that classic C86 jangle.

Fat White Family (18:15 - 19:00, Nottingham Trent Uni)
The NME may have called them ‘the most dangerous band in Britain’, but don’t let that put you off. These grot-rockers are the real deal giving the corpse of rock n’ roll a right old kicking in the nether regions.

Hinds (19:30 - 20:00, Nottingham Trent Uni)
Hailing from Madrid and existing in the same scratchy lo-fi garage-rock-with-classic-pop-melodies territory as a Jesus and Mary Chain or Velvet Underground, but with less heroin, we hope.

Saint Raymond (22:00 - 23:00, Rock City)
Not only is he headlining Rock City, he's headlining the whole flippin' thing in Notts, Manchester and Bristol. Expect a long queue and a rammed room for this bill-topping performance from Nottingham’s latest breakout star.

The Hotelier (00:00 - 00:30, The Bodega)
Air-punching, chest-beating American indie-rock with a big heart worn very much with pride on its sleeve. Expect tears while beers are held aloft.
