Jodrell Bank, UK


UPDATE: It is with incredibly heavy hearts that we are announcing the postponement of bluedot to 22-25 July 2021. We are happy to confirm that our three Lovell Stage headliners – Björk, Groove Armada and Metronomy – will join us on these new dates, and we are working to transfer as many of 2020’s artists and speakers to bluedot 2021 as possible.

Welcome to bluedot, a weekend celebration of music, science and cosmic culture at the UK’s home of astronomy, Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire. Previous music headliners have included Kraftwerk, The Chemical Brothers, New Order, Hot Chip, The Flaming Lips, Blue Planet in concert with the Halle Orchestra and more, while science and culture headliners have included Helen Sharman [First British astronaut], James Burke [Presenter, BBC Apollo 11 1969], Brian Cox, Libby Jackson [UK Space Agency], Richard Dawkins.
