Every year I look forward to Dot to Dot Festival, I always find it’s a great place to discover new artists, while also watching some of my favourite emerging bands. The metropolitan festival takes place over three days, one day in Manchester, one in Bristol and the last in Nottingham. Each day taking over a number of venues in the city and showcasing the same headliners but also a further line up of artists local to that area.

This year the lineup featured headliners Crystal Fighters, Jordan Rakei, Swim Deep and loads more, but I decided to see which new, emerging bands I could discover on the smaller stages
