Following last summer's festival which was packed with incredible performances from across the musical spectrum, alongside spectacular scientific happenings and a mind-expanding programme of arts and culture, bluedot returns again to Jodrell Bank - the Cheshire observatory at the cutting edge of humanity’s quest for knowledge - on 20th - 22nd July 2018 for a highly anticipated third edition.

bluedot is an award-winning festival of discovery at the grounds of a deep space observatory. Set against a backdrop of the iconic Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank, bluedot combines a truly stellar line-up of music with a ground-breaking programme of live science experiments, expert talks and immersive artworks.

We're thrilled to announce Thursday at bluedot 2018

We are thrilled to announce that we have introduced a new, Thursday night ticket for Bluedot festival. For those who choose to extend their Bluedot festival experience and join us early, an additional Thursday evening ticket with a spectacular headline show will be available for just £29 for weekend campers.

This new addition is due to popular demand and, like many other festivals, allows us to provide more options for festival-goers. It also keeps the price of the weekend ticket down for those wishing to attend only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

For those wishing to experience just our Thursday event and not the weekend, tickets will be £35. Car parking and campsites will open at 12 noon, with entertainment from 6pm until 11pm. Teen, child and under 5 Thursday tickets are free.

If you're staying with us in The Colony, our boutique campsite, you can join us from the Thursday if you have a Thursday ticket and your weekend ticket, and enjoy a free night in your boutique tent.

We have an epic surprise in store for Thursday night and we hope you can join us.

Please note: If you are not joining us on Thursday, and you are a standard weekend ticket-holder, rest assured that you will still be able to find space for camping. There are large camping fields that won't open until Friday, when the majority of festival-goers will be arriving.

Live-in Vehicle

Valid only for live in vehicles, cars are not permitted in the live in vehicle field, unless towing a caravan.

Each ticket includes a pitch of 7 x 5 meters. One pass per live in vehicle, not per person. Tents are not permitted in the live in vehicle field. Unsuitable vehicles such as unconverted vans will not be allowed entry to the live in vehicle field and will be redirected to the festival car park where sleeping in vehicles is prohibited. Suitable vehicles are those that have living accommodation with fitted sleeping and either fitted cooking or washing facilities. Motorhomes include camper vans.
