• DOT TO DOT INSIDERS •
#D2DFest veterans in Manchester, @crimsonsband, are releasing their debut EP 'Shy Talk' next week and playing a set for us at Walrus for Dot To Dot Festival 2017. Before it all kicks off we had a chat with lead man Sam Cartwright to get his tips for this year's festival.
• Must see act: @commoonicate
• Track of the festival: @theslowreadersclub - Plant The Seed
• Festival tip: Fully immerse yourself and catch as many acts as possible. Don't be afraid to venture into the Northern Quarter and check out some of the smaller venues, the standard is always superb.
• Venue fact: At Dot to Dot 2015 we actually met our current bassist Lucas when he came to see our old band at the The Whiskey Jar.
Keep an eye out for more recommendations from our Dot To Dot insiders.
