Dot To Dot has announced the first wave of artists for its three one-dayers taking place over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

The Horrors, Pale Waves, Marika Hackman, Dermot Kennedy, The Regrettes, Turnover, Cassia, George Glew, Cuckoolander, Connie Constance, Bully, Adam French, Puma blue, Our Girl, Helena Deland, and lots more are also confirmed for the festival, which takes place in Manchester, Bristol, and Nottingham towards the end of May.

Check out the full lineup so far on the poster below.

"We’re delighted to welcome The Horrors to headline 2018’s Dot To Dot Festival," says Dot To Dot organiser Anton Lockwood. "Over the course of five albums their relentless creativity has produced some of the best music the UK has to offer, and it’s great to have them at the UK’s most forward-thinking city festival. Beyond The Horrors, really the festival is about new music, and our other two main headliners are new artists destined for huge things. Pale Waves and Dermot Kennedy are both rising fast and we’re very excited to bring them to you just as they reach a wider audience. Of course, as befits an event that last year was recognised as the Best Festival for Emerging Talent, we also have an array of the finest brand new artists which will be announced very soon. We’ve seen many artists go on to huge success after playing at D2D and we can’t wait to see what this year’s bunch will go on to achieve!"

Dot To Dot celebrates its 13th birthday on 25 (Manchester), 26 (Bristol), and 27 (Nottingham) May. Tickets are on sale now.
