Gallery: Relive some of the best moments from Bluedot 2018
Bluedot has been nominated for ‘Best Medium Festival’ at this year’s UK Festival Awards.
The annual intergalactic festival, held at Jodrell Bank Observatory, has previously won “New Festival on the Block” and “Mind-Blowing Spectacle” by the Association of Independent Festivals.
Bluedot festival organiser Ben Robinson said: “Bluedot is a truly spectacular event held in an even more spectacular location and being nominated for Best Medium Festival is a real real testament to everyone involved.”
He added: “We are yet to win a UK Festival Award and winning Best Medium Festival would be truly incredible. We’d be delighted if people could take five minutes out of their day to vote!”

Ben continued: “We have an amazing bill for 2019, the best yet.
“It’s not just the headline artists that will impress, we’ve really raised the bar with our science, arts, culture, wellbeing and food content and have some very exciting announcements in the coming months.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone back to bluedot for another weekend of discovery.”
The event will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings.
Attendees can again expect a weekend of talent from across the musical, scientific, literary and arts communities.
Five distinct arenas will feature cosmic culture, talks, screenings, lectures, comedy and debates, a vast spectrum of hands-on activities and much more.
