A little further out from the city, Blue Dot Festival is an award winning three-day festival which explores  music, science and technology. See Pixies, Warpaint, Orbital and more set against a backdrop of the iconic Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank. We love the boutique camping options and the friendly atmosphere that make this festival a pull for various ages. Taking place 7 – 9 July, Jodrell Bank Observatory, Cheshire. Weekend tickets £159.

Manchester International Festival presents work from across the spectrum of performing arts, visual arts and popular culture. MIF’s full programme will be launched in March, but find out what has been announced so far by clicking here. At Go See This, we are already looking forward to the What Is the City but the People? event. Staged in venues across the city, MIF brings different art forms together to create dynamic innovative and forward thinking new work. See musical performances that push boundaries and challenge the norm from 29 June – 16 July across various venues.
