New Order and Hot Chip to join Kraftwerk at Bluedot

It’s an almost-homecoming for the Manchester legends.

New Order and Hot Chip are to join Kraftwerk and their 3-D extravaganza at this year’s Bluedot.

The bands - the former of which will find the Cheshire location of Jodrell Bank Observatory an almost-homecoming - will appear across the weekend of 18th - 21st July at the festival.

John Grant, Jon Hopkins, Anna Calvi, Kate Tempest, Gruff Rhys, Du Blonde and actor Maxine Peake are also among those confirmed to appear.

2018’s festival was headlined by The Chemical Brothers, with Future Islands, Nadine Shah and Alexis Taylor also on the bill.

Tickets are on sale now.
