Review of Bluedot Festival
Would you recommended: Yes
it was absolutely amazing and fantastic for kids the music was excellent
Loved the Bluedot Festival and would definitely go next year for the 50th Anniversary special of the Moon Landings. Great atmosphere and just the right size for a festival. Not too big and not too small. Felt very safe with the stewards around and a great festival for all the family and all ages with a mixture of everything. Loved the science lectures on SETI and Aliens, the films of Moon and Metropolis and the music, wellbeing area and fire garden. THANK YOU Bluedot! Until next year!
Bit pricey on drinks.
Staff, music & atmosphere great
Best festival that I have ever been too
Brilliant weekend. Great music. Interesting science and a wonderful location.
roads were a mare
Beautiful setting for a festival, we just came for the Thursday evening But will stay for the whole event with the grandchildren next year.
The website wasn’t clear around access for Motorhomes but there were lots there.
An excellent festival, full of good vibes due to the location, the lovely family atmosphere, unique programme and great food. Seeing Orbital there this year was a real highlight. I hope they can keep booking such quality acts in future so we can make a weekend of it.
Ok but no markets & food astonishingly expensive
I took my space-mad 10 year old to Bluedot, lured by fantastic music and tons of science in an awe-inspiring setting. Neither of us were disappointed - it's simply the best all-round festival we've been to. Brilliant line-up and a wide range of informative and interesting science talks and workshops, suitable for all ages and experience levels. Really friendly atmosphere (staff, volunteers and fellow festival-goers were all lovely). Great range of food and drink providers. My only criticism is of the camping facilities - too few washing facilities to serve the number of campers, and worst of all, no showers, unless you wanted to pay £25 a day for Club Class shower and toilet facilities (together with hairdryers, mirrors and straighteners). I don't - I just want a warm shower a couple of times over the weekend. I don't mind paying a couple of quid (most other reasonable-sized festivals provide for free), but the choice of Club Class or nothing was a bit of a joke. So we stayed grubby and did the wetwipe wash. Otherwise, it was brilliant.
Great music and venue but £40 for a shower
Fab Friendly Festival
I went on Saturday. Wow, what a massive variety of stuff to see, hear and do, for all ages. Great talks but a shame I couldn't get into the Dark Web talk, it was solid packed at the door so couldn't even stand at the back. [ORGANISERS - I suspect every seat wasn't taken and that there was room to stand around the sides; there should have been some stewards moving people around so more could enjoy the talk.]
It's a shame that all the food and drink was so expensive, it spoiled the day a bit for me. Particular highlights for me: Radiophonic Workshop, Chris Lintott, the telescope, the weather, the atmosphere. Well done guys!
Excellent festival, very family friendly with science activities geared towards not only adults, but ~7yrs onwards too.
