A friend/ colleague gave me a 'heads up' about this event... billed as "An intergalactic festival of music, science, arts, culture and the exploration of space".
A self-proclaimed 'geeky festival', hooray!
From the Bluedot website:
"Bluedot with OVO Energy 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.
"In an era of political divisiveness and environmental uncertainty, bluedot aims to cultivate a unifying celebration for citizens of the world. Its 2017 message is loud and clear: look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. (Carl Sagan, 1934—1996)."
Bluedot Festival happening 7-9 July 2017 in Cheshire UK.
