DOT TO DOT | MANCHESTER | 2019

REVIEWS

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

GLASS CAVES | MANCHESTER ACADEMY 2 |16/02/19

REVIEWS

  On Saturday Manchester Academy 2 saw a massive homegrown show take to its stage. The night, headlined by Glass Caves, was a huge step for the local group, who tightly packed the great venue with hundreds of excited followers. Not only that, but supporting the quartet was another two of Manchester’s finest upcoming artists Kashmere and Freeda, who were the perfect openers for the unforgettable night

KASHMERE | GRAVITY

REVIEWS

I Wouldn’t usually write about a track after it has been released but for Kashmere I will make an exception.

Their newest track, Gravity, was released on Friday and I was quite surprised by the song. I have followed the band for quite a while and after hearing their early indie-fueled hits develop into 80’s influenced synth pop I wasn’t too sure what to expect from the new release
